Paisleys & Posies

paisleyleavesI LOVE leaves…no…really I do!  It is right up there with trees.  I LOVE trees.  Okay the fact the trees have leaves, well, that probably have something to do with it!

I was looking for a challenge to join in and saw the challenge on The Paper Players was leaf and what can I say…I just HAD to join in the fun!

Well…then to figure out what leaf to use….hmmm…my new favorite set (Paisleys & Posies) had TWO leaves in it…JACKPOT!!! So I got to work and this is what I came up with!

Here’s the details

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Mint Macaron print – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4, add to bottom of card front, wrap piece of Delight Dijon 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the card front (ends are under the panel on the front).
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/4 x 4 1/2, stamp dotted paisley using Versamark and gold emboss, layer on Rich Razzleberry – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Sweet Sugarplum – 3/8 x 1 3/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black, cut into a banner and add to card front
  • Stamp large leaf 3 times using Momento Black, color using Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron markers, cut out (sorry…no framelit for this one, have to cut out!), layer and add over end of banner
  • Add some Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to finish off

Just a reminder…the Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Session is open and it features all things from the NEW Holiday Mini.
