Spring Themed Mini Postcards

These spring themed mini postcards were really fun to make!   I chose some of my favorite botanicals, butterflies  and birds, and just kept playing with them and layering them until I created a few designs I liked.   I recolored some graphics and broke others apart and just kept layering them  (links to all the graphics used are at the end of the post).

These mini postcards would be great for small craft projects and art work, to use as gift tags or cards, or you could maybe enlarge them and use them as postcards too!  Don’t forget to click on the words below each image to download the full size PDF.  I hope you enjoy these!

As promised, here are the graphics used for the postcards.  I used the Blue ButterflyNatural History ButterfliesBird & Blossoms Line ArtColorful PeacockBird with LilacsWhite Flowering Branch,  Pink Camelia Botanical, and Antique Penmanship Poem.  I used a bunch of elements from old postcards, including the French PostmarkPostcard WordingPost Card Words and Place Stamp Here, and Post Card Back Lines.  Other images used are the Clock Face,  Vintage ScrollsVictorian Bird Cage,   Paris Maison Transfer, and Fleur de Lis Crown.

You can find the Lattice Digital Papers used as the background graphic here.     I also used these postal photoshop brushes, and this technique to make some graphics white.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy these cards.  They were a lot of fun to make!
