Although this is one of those cards that does not have a specific occasion attached to it ... I think it would work well for any number of occasions for a man. Start by making a 5" x 7" card from chocolate brown paper. Cut a 1" wide strip from gold mirrored paper and attach it vertically down the card one 1" away from the folded edge. Emboss the stamp (The Rubbernecker Company) twice in black on tan paper. Trim one of the stamped images with a deckle edge scissor, color the image with glitter markers (Martha Stewart/E. K. Success) and coloring pencils. Distress the edges with a brown ink pad and lightly run the pad over the central image as well. Attached the colored and trimmed panel to the card. From the second panel, cut out the dragon fly and the geometric design. Color each with glitter markers and attach to the first panel (matching the locations) using raised adhesive dots. Add gold faux gems (Stampendous Dot Spaklers) to the center of the geometric design and for the dragonfly's eyes.
