Plaid Leaf


I began by selecting this fabulous, Madras looking plaid, from the pack of 6X6 Plaid Tidings Designer Paper. You can see all of the plaids in my Product List below.

I trimmed the plaid paper to 4″ X 5 1/4″, and used the largest Layering Circles Die to cut the circle on the left side. 


A Stitched Leaves Die was used to cut the leaf from the plaid, cut-out circle. I cut a second leaf from Whisper White Cardstock, glued them together on the stem side, leaving the right side of the leaf free, so it could lift.


I glued the Plaid Tidings Paper and the leaf to a Blackberry Bliss card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″).

For a touch of bling, I wrote “thanks” with a Well Written Die and the new Brushed Metallic Cardstock. Isn’t it gorgeous? And, I couldn’t help but add some Brushed Metallic to the leaf. That cute little die is also a Well Written Die.


I was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch.
