Four Cards with the Fanciful Fall Leaves Die!
Hello Poppy Peeps!
It's Sphoorti, and I have four cards for you today! I love Fall and I love leaves, so when I had the die out, I couldn't stop die cutting away. I ended up with so many leaves, I made four cards, and I still have many leftover leaves that I can't wait to make more cards with!
The technique is pretty much the same for all these cards, just some little nuances here and there. The products I used are also pretty much the same, so I'll go ahead and list them here, and you'll also see them at the bottom of the blog post.

I started off by lining some of my usual 110 pound Neenah Solar White cardstock with some Deco Foil Toner Sheets by Therm O Web. You can actually use these directly, but I wanted the leaves to be sturdier / thicker, so I used the Neenah as the base. I took some Deco Foil Transfer sheets in the rainbow and the emerald watercolor colors, and ran it through my laminator with the toner sheets, and ended up with some foiled card stock. I die cut the Fanciful Fall leaves using this foiled card stock and cut a whole lot of leaves. (Note: Some leaves were also cut out using the technique from my previous post (i.e. foiling with adhesive sheets), I used this technique when I ran out of the Deco Foil Toner sheets). I recommend the technique in this post because the leaves have a smoother finish, and the deco foil doesn't get scrunched up when you use the toner sheets.
I used the Scalloped Stitched and the Double Scalloped Stitched Frames dies and cut out a number of frames with Neenah Solar White 110# card stock.
On the white cards, I picked out random scalloped frames that I cut out and placed them at various angles on my card base. Then, I took the foiled leaves and backed them with some foam tape for dimension. I scattered the leaves within the confines of some of the frames and cut the remaining ones off so that the card has a smooth finish. I added a sentiment to each card (i.e. the Hot Foiled "Just a Note", the Freestyle Hello, and the Freestyle Hugs). I scattered a plethora of jewels, pearls and rhinestones wherever I found some white space between the leaves, and that was it for the cards in white.
For the card in black - I used some 120# black card stock as my card base, and scattered the leaves everywhere. I didn't use the scalloped frames on this one. I topped it off with the Freestyle Hello sentiment and scattered jewels on this one and called it done!
Thoughts? Questions? Epiphanies? Let me know which one you liked most! I think mine was the "Just a Note" card. But I'd love to know your thoughts! Thank you for visiting! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
