Gentle Leaf Collage
by Sue McRae


Hello crafters, welcome to another day of our blog blitz!


I started off my card by using the Gentle Leaf Collage, die cutting it from card stock and using this piece as a stencil. I used glitter embossing paste in green with a hint of blue for the leaves and love the pretty sparkle. This is such a great way to get more mileage from your dies!


I wanted a defined edge for my panel so I tapped a Versamark ink pad around the edge of the card stock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set.


To continue with the gold theme I flicked gold paint onto the panel.


I die cut the Little Luxe Hello from black card stock and stamped the word friend from the Sentiments of Hello stamp set.


To finish off, I mounted my panel onto black card stock and added a few black pearls.

Love the gentle leaf die and the way you used it as a stencil to create pretty card. Thanks for sharing!

What a cool idea! I wonder if you didn't have the paste if you could just use glue and glitter? Great job, love the effect and the other added elements!!! Thanks for sharing.
