Dragon Card

This card if for my DT post over at the challenge is For a man.

These cards are the ones I find most difficult.

The card I have made is a Welsh Happy Birthday Card. This dragon is very popular for the Welsh men and boys I make cards for.


I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and green card, I have embossed white card with an Embossalicious embossing folder. I added a strip of the embossed card to my project and then added red satin ribbon to the ends of the embossing. I die cut a red dragon with a Sweet Dixie die and attached it to a white circle and then attached that to a green circle. I die cut these with Tonic dies for different sets. I die cut the sentiment with a Tattered Lace die then added it to a pierced flag cut with a Sue Wilson die. To complete my card I added red stars that a cut with a punch
