Love of Leaves Thinking of You
Today’s “thinking of you” card features the Love of Leaves Bundle paired with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper!
I absolutely LOVE the Love of Leaves Bundle! Fall is my favorite season, for one, but I am also in love with the Stitched Leaves Dies and how the stitching is on the negative cutout!
For this card, I first stamped the Shaded Spruce leaf directly onto the card base using the Stamparatus. Then I took a piece of Whisper White that measured 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (same size as the folded card base) and stamped the leaf onto it. Then I removed 1/8″ from all 4 sides to keep the stamped image in the center of the layer. Now that piece will perfectly lay over the card base with the leaf peaking through.
I added a 1″ strip of Plaid Tidings DSP and tied a Braided Linen Trim bow above it. For the sentiment, I cut a 5/8″ strip of Cherry Cobbler, heat embossed the sentiment in white, and then trimmed each end to size, angle cutting the left side. The finishing touch is a rhinestone on one of the leaves. Easy, peasy!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!
