The image panel on this first one is mounted on foam squares.
For this second one, I embossed the background with a Darice Wire Fence folder and scored a line between the embossing and the sentiment. Then I added color with the matting.
I had this die-cut (almost) square laying on my table from a short while ago, and also the punched butterfly had been on my table for a long, long time. I added black gems for the butterfly's body and mounted the panel on foam squares. I also added a thin strip of black.
I added two of the die cuts to this card.
