Hi Friends! It is Dana here today sharing a fun Fall card with you all that uses the Gorgeous Leafy Background die. I am in love with this die, and the possibilities are endless. Let's get started, shall we?
I started my card by die cutting the Leafy Background from white cardstock two times. On my first pass through my die cutting machine I applied as little pressure as possible to try and keep as many pieces (leaves) as I could to stay inside the die. I then added strips of scotch tape to the back of this first die cut to help hold all of the little pieces inside the die. I used my Copic markers to color all of the leaves in fall colors. I didn't worry about staying in the lines because I knew my edges would be covered, you also want to make sure you go over the edges a little so that there is not any white showing. Next, I ran the Leafy Background die through my die cutting machine a second time to get a clean cut.
Next, I used a liquid glue to attach the white Leafy Background die cut over my colored leaves. I love how the leaves look like they are inlaid without having to do all of the work. By adding the tape behind my colored leaves I knew they were not going to fall out when I attached the two die cuts together. Once I had my square finished I cut it in half so I could use it on the top and bottom of my card design.
For my sentiment, I used the Autumn Leaves sentiment set. I stamped my sentiment and the little leaves with VersaMark ink and heat set gold embossing powder onto my cardstock. I then attached my Leafy Background to the top and bottom of my card panel. To finish my card I attached my card panel to a top folding A2 card base and tied some twine under my sentiment.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to try this fun and easy technique.
Enjoy your day!
