Little Luxe Love
by Michele K. Henderson
Summer is in full swing with lush green leaves everywhere I look. We've had plenty of rain and scorching, muggy heat, which means the jungle in my back yard is thick and full! So here's a simple little salute to summer using a few die cuts and a winning tri-color trio!
Kraft, lime green, and white always look great together, especially on fun summer cards. I cut out three Little Luxe Loves and stacked them up for a little dimension, then added the Graceful Faerie in bright white. I cut the Majestic Maples and the Leafy Breeze in a mouth-watering green, and added the Bellen Corners in Kraft. Easy Breezy Summertime fun!
Here's a fun way to add a little pop and dimension to these big Majestic Maples. After you've cut them, simply shape them with your hands by gently curving the edges up, as if you were making a little paper bowl.
Then add a little glue puddle just to the flat spot where the leaf sits on the card base. After it dries, you can continue to shape the leaf by gently curving or flattening with your fingers, or even a round tip burnisher for tiny leaves and petals. It makes green leaves look like they are floating through the air, and it makes fall leaves look natural and curly.
We're so glad you could join us today for a little summertime crafty fun! While you're here, take a look at our June Challenge, Rainbow Wishes!
The green of the leaves is popping off the kraft paper background. Great card!
