Yesterday I shared a rainbow themed card with you that was made using all dies and no stamping. Today I am using that same die (Leaf Foliage 2 from Whimsy Stamps) and have created two more cards with it to show you the versatility of these products. In fact, I could think of countless more ways to use these beautiful leafy dies and have no doubt you'll be seeing them here again this fall.
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
*Both of these cards were made the same way, simply using a different color combination on each card.
Both A2 size cards begin with an 80 lb. base of Neenah Solar Smooth white cardstock. I lined each card base with a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the same white cardstock than I ran through a linear embossing folder to give it a subtle pattern. Using the Leaf Foliage 2 dies, I cut a variety of leaves out in either purples, pinks and gold, or green, blues and golds. I adhered the leaves to each card in a circular pattern using a Tombow permanent dot
runner. I die cut a large scalloped circle from gold glitter paper and a small circle from white cardstock. On the small circle, I stamped the sentiment in either pink or green ink. I adhered the sentiment circle to the gold glitter circle and adhered both circles to the center of the card.
This card could easily be made in any color combinations you prefer! I think by adding some elements of gold (or silver, if you so choose) it really adds a touch of elegance.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
