Interactive card with dragonfly

Interactive volvelle card with dragonfly and gnome created for the MFT YouTube Channel.

Hello there! I made a volvelle card featuring a dragonfly with color changing wings for my monthly interactive card tutorial on the MFT YouTube Channel.

As always, before we get into more details, let’s check it out in the video clip below:

The adorable images are from the JB Wings & Wishes set and the sentiment is from the SY Beauty of Spring set. I also used the largest die from the Stitched Eyelet Lace Circle STAX Die-namics for my rotating wheel.

I’ve actually made a similar card with a color changing chameleon before, but I didn’t film the process to create a tutorial for it. In both cards I die cut windows with the matching dies, stamped the images on pieces of acetate and masked some elements with a white paint marker.

However, in this card I also fussy cut part of the image and inlaid it in the window so that only the wings of the firefly would change color. It’s a simple and useful trick that allows you to use almost any type of image to create this kind of interactive card… For the coloring I used the following Copic markers:

Gnome’s skin and beard: E11, E21, E00, R01, E37, E35, E33

Gnome’s hat and shoes: G07, G05, G03, G02, W10, W7

Firefly’s body: YR27, YR24, YR21

Flowers: G07, G05, G03, G02, G99, G94, YR27, YR24, YR21
