Milestone Birthday Card / Window Card

My friend and upline Denise, recently turned a milestone birthday. See pictures for which milestone! LOL

She loves her dragonflies. So I thought why not combine dragonflies and the milestone for a beautiful card. She also loves more earthy colors. This is one of the perks of making a custom handmade card, you can get quite customized for the receiver.

For this project I did extend the window sheet beyond the cardstock frame to create a different effect. I love how that turned out. It gives a modern floating frame look to the central image.

To give the dragonfly flight, I stamped the bottom image after inking it up then stomped two more times without inking in between. This is a great way to show movement on your projects.

I hope you enjoyed my flight of the dragonfly today.

Happy stamping, Sandy
