I'm a sucker for monarch butterflies, so I couldn't help but color up the beautiful images for this card in different shades of orange and red.
One of the fabulous surprises in this stamp set was a preprinted coloring card. The images were dark and crisp and my Copic markers blended beautifully on the cardstock! After coloring all of the images I was going to use on my cards, I stamped one of the sentiments on the preprinted banner, and then die cut everything out using the coordinating dies.
The butterflies were used to draw attention to my focal image - a sentiment from the cardstock sticker sheet in the collection surrounded by a frame from the ephemera pack. I added a few additional butterfly stickers and a spray of paper mini blossoms around the image as well.
The background is created from some of the antique map cardstock from the collection, matted with a bit of Espresso Bean cardstock. Before adhering the entire card front to a 5" x 7" card base, I added a little orange and lace ribbon from my stash and a chipboard sentiment.
For the second card, I wanted to emulate the look of a postcard, so I started by matting a piece of blue patterned cardstock with Ecru cardstock, followed by the striped patterned cardstock to create a 5" x 7" cardbase.
I popped the colored biplane image up with its sentiment banner in the lower right corner and balanced the card design with a banner popped up in the opposite corner made with elements from the ephemera pack.
For fun, I "stamped" the postcard with a chipboard stamp!
