Lime Damselfly Mandala Card – Shadow Dance


Lime damselfly mandala art printed as a 5.25″ by 5.25″ square greeting card for giving, framing, and meditation. Carries a bit of fairy energy that could appeal to both Scorpios and Geminis. Includes envelope and free shipping. If you’re mailing you card and would like me to add the correct USPS first class stamp to the envelope, please choose that option from the menu. An additional charge will apply.

Lime damselfly mandala card is digitally printed using archival pigment inks on silky, bright white, acid-free paper. Folded card is 5.25" by 5.25" and comes with a beautifully made, bright white envelope. The photograph I used to create the mandala is printed on the back of the card with the photo location. Interior of the card is blank and the paper is super smooth, not slick, and takes gel, ballpoint, and other inks well. Perfect as a birthday card, thinking of you note, or small gift to be framed for a fisherman, kayaker, boater, nature lover, or anyone who enjoys slowing down and being near water. Can be nice for a Scorpio exploring their shadows, but also carries the lighter energy of Gemini. In addition, damselflies have long been associated with fairy energy. The card and envelope are packaged together in a plastic sleeve and mailed in a stiffened mailer.

Framing. This lime damselfly mandala card is created using high-quality materials, such as might be used in a museum. The print is sharp, bright, and frameable. To protect the vibrancy of the artwork, I frame using UV glass or acrylic, and I recommend it. If you use plain glass or acrylic, make sure you hang this sweet, little piece and all your beautiful art away from direct sunlight.

Postage. Because irregularly shaped mail, like this lime damselfly mandala card, must be canceled by hand, the U.S. Postal Service requires extra postage to deliver them. Special "butterfly stamps" carry the exact right postage to mail your bee card within the U.S. If you would like me to stamp the envelope with a butterfly stamp so it's ready for you to mail, please choose that option from the menu.

About the Art. The lime damselfly mandala art on this card, titled Shadow Dance, was created from a photo of an ebony jewelwing damselfly on an American beech leaf at Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, Maryland. Long associated with fairies, damselflies come in metallic greens, blues, reds, and purples, and hang out near water, be it a river, a creek, a marshy or shrubby wetland, or a persistent puddle. I found the one in the photo along Antietam Creek, not far from where Union troops crossed on September 17, 1862, in an attempt the flank the Confederate battle line during the Battle of Antietam. I was amazed by the level of detail visible through the beech leaf. The veining of the wings was even visible. Likely, this damselfly was staking out its territory, waiting for a mosquito or fly to wander by. Adult damselflies live a few weeks, long enough to mate and lay their eggs in whatever gently moving water they'd staked out as an acceptable nursery.
