Love of Leaves Bundle

Today it's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #624.  We have a color challenge this week.  We are using Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Just Jade.


I do have a love of leaves.  This new Love of Leaves bundle is right up my alley.  It was perfect for the color challenge today.  Here's my card.

Look at the detail for each leaf made using the Stitched Leaves dies.  So pretty!

The base of the card is Just Jade measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folding at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Bumblebee cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  

The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp the leaves in Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Just Jade.  I felt like the card front still needed a little something.  The dots are from the Comfort & Hope stamp set.  Use all three colors for the dots, too.  Now make the vein imprints with the Stitched Leaves dies.  I love this.  There is just a slight hint of the Bumblebee card stock showing from behind when the two layers are adhered.

On a piece of Cinnamon Cider, stamp the saying from Love of Leaves in Versamark.  Add White Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool.  Punch this with the Label Me Fancy Punch.  Punch holes at the each end of the label with the same punch.  Put dimensionals on the back of the label at the top and bottom.  Pull through some of the Bumblebee gingham ribbon.  Secure the ribbon to the back.  Add a bow of the same ribbon with a glue dot to the side.

I notice in this picture, that my label does not have the dots.  I decided to add them later.  Which do you like best?  Do you like the label with dots or no dots?

For the inside of the card, stamp the saying in Just Jade from the Love of Leaves stamp set.

Add a few of the smaller leaves.  Cut out and add the veins using the Stitched Leaves dies.  Did you know you could cut out and add the veins at the same time?  Yes, you can!
