Swallowtail Thinking of You Cards

I was in need of a few "Thinking of You" cards for a few friends and neighbors that are going through a tough time right now.  The first stamp I grabbed was the new Swallowtail stamp from the Spring Catalog.  It's so easy to make something beautiful out of this stamp set.  I began by inking up the large stamp with Daffodil Delight ink and adding Calypso Coral with a sponge dauber in the middle of the butterfly and around the edges of the butterfly (or Tempting Turquoise - see the card below). There is so much detail to this stamp that you don't have to do much to the stamp before adding it to the Whisper White card stock.  I added a greeting in Basic Black that was most appropriate for each friend. Added a layer of Basic Black or Daffodil Delight card stock before attaching it the card base.
