Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Thankful” and we each create a simple card every week using that theme! It’s SO appropriate for this time of year!
This Mini Catalog’s leaf set, Gorgeous Leaves, are truly that…beautiful detailed leaf dies and stamps! I’ve combined them on my card along with the Heartfelt Wishes greeting!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Soft Succulent cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White was stamped off several times with the cluster stamp in Soft Succulent Ink towards the bottom right side.
- The maple leaf was stamped with Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee Inks on Basic White cardstock, then cut with the Intricate Leaves Dies.
- The large maple leaf was cut from So Saffron cardstock with the Dies, leaving in some of the pieces. The narrow leaf was cut from Cinnamon Cider cardstock with the Dies. Both were added to the background with Tombow Multipurpose Glue, then the small leaves placed on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Soft Succulent cardstock, then hand-cut close to the letters. It was added to the front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of In Color Jewels in the Soft Succulent color were added to the background.
These softer colors really seemed to work for my fall leaves card! Make sure to check out what Mary did this week for her “Thankful” Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary! Stay tune next week for another Creatively Simple card!
