Happy Wednesday friends! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with a pair of cards featuring the Leafy 1 and Leafy 2 dies. These are separate foliage sets that come with a solid and an outline die for each design. I love a good two-for-one so I did my die cutting at the same time and created these cards simultaneously.
First, I chose a piece of paper from the Inked Oasis paper pad and cut the shadow die from both leafy die sets from it. Then I used the outline die to cut the center out of a 4×5.25 inch piece of white cardstock. Since I was using the whole thing, I was careful to place it exactly where I wanted it on my card front.
I lined the back of the main panel with foam tape and inserted the patterned paper shadow in the opening. Then I used liquid glue to adhere the outline over the top. I placed an acrylic block on top while I stamped and heat embossed sentiments from Sunny Greetings on black cardstock.
Once the sentiments were finished and die cut, I added them to the foliage panels with foam strips and then added the whole thing to white card bases.
For finishing touches on these cards, I chose enamel dots that went with the colors in the patterned paper. I love the look of embellishments like this scattered at an angle across a design.
Because the leaves were die cut from different parts of the same piece of paper, it was fun to pull different colors from each to give a different look to each card.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
