Black and Gold Dragonfly Card
This Black and Gold Dragonfly Card has a simple color combo, as well as a 3D dragonfly element! Read the details here and make one, too!
This color combo, black/ white/ gold, is one of my favorites because of it’s simplicity.
Keeping it simple allows a beautiful card from looking too cluttered, and helps your main elements remain the focal point.
Contrastingly, the featured dragonfly is not only a beautiful gold, but its wings also have a 3D effect!

How to make a Black and Gold Dragonfly Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Thick Basic White
- 4 1/4” x 11”, scored at 5 1/2” for your cardbase
- Die-cut a medium sized circle (slightly larger than the dragonfly
- 3/4” x 2 1/2” strip
- Gold Foil: 4” x 5 1/4”
- Basic Black: 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”
Emboss wildflowers and dragonflies:
- Using Versamark ink, stamp the wildflowers on the left side of the black piece. Sprinkle with gold embossing powder, tap off the excess, and heat until it’s shiny.
- Using the same heat embossing technique, create TWO dragonflies using scrap pieces of black cardstock, and punch them both out.
Adhere it together:
- Next, stamp your sentiment using black ink on the white strip, and glue to the lower right side of the black piece.
- Adhere the die-cut circle to the upper right side of the black piece, and trim off any excess.
- Adhere the black piece to the gold foil, and then adhere that to the white card base.
- Lastly, glue one of the dragonflies down on the white circle. Finally, apply glue to just the body of the dragonfly and attach the second dragonfly to it. Folding the wings up makes this a bit easier, too, and gives a 3D look!
