Do you have friends who love dragonflies? Then this simple dragonfly Thank You card is the perfect handmade greeting card for that special person you need to say thank you to!

Simple Thank You Dragonfly Card in pink and green

The Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set evokes feelings of being in an idyllic garden, surrounded by lovely meadow flowers and watching dragonflies elegantly fly by. When I lived in Rhode Island as a girl, I spent many a happy spring doing just that! This captures the tranquility and beauty of those long hours spent laying in a field, watching the sky and capturing dragonflies!

The Inspirational greetings of friendship in this stamp set also give you many opportunities to make someone’s day with a hand-crafted card. 

What makes this card so simple is that the Dragonfly was punched out of the coordinating Dandy Garden Designer Paper using the Dragonflies Punch, which is part of the Dragonfly Bundle. This punch will help you create charming embellishment on cards, tags, and more.
