Creative Nugget: I just love this flower and butterfly image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. It's from a clear stamp set called, "Treasured." The "Vintage Postcard" elements were stamped on a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The butterfly image was stamped in Tuxedo Black, then stamped again on a scrap piece of card stock. Both images were colored with copic markers, and the image on the scrap paper was cut out. The main panel was then cut with a circle nestie and sponged around the edges while still in the die. The Echo Park panel pieces were layered onto Close to Cocoa card stock and adhered to a Vintage Cream card base. A piece of lace was used for the second strip in the layout design and the Eyelet Border Die was cut from a coordinating piece of patterned paper. Some ribbon was woven through the die cut and a button tied on. The little tag was made from the Tiny Tags stamp set and matching die by Papertrey Ink. The second butterfly image was then popped on top and the leaves curled slightly with a scissors.
I'm taking a copic class at the Color Me Creative Classroom to improve my copic skills, and my homework was to practice coloring with reds...so this card and the Christmas version will be submitted for my homework assignment!
