Plants and leaves are beautiful on cards, and the theme for this week’s Global Design Project. I chose a favorite leaf from the Ranunculus Die Set. Isn’t it wonderful?
To create the colors, I used Blending Brushes, Basic White Cardstock, and six colors of ink: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Fresh Freesia, and Polished Pink. Then, I used the Ranunculus leaf die for cutting.
The background for my rainbow of leaves is a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Prior to attaching the leaves, I gave the card base a simple border, using the largest Stitched With Whimsy die. Three of the leaves were glued, and three were attached with thin strips of Dimensionals.
The sentiment was created with the Charming Sentiments Bundle and heat embossing. First, I stamped “congratulations” in VersaMark on Basic White Cardstock. Second, I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. Third, I used its Sentiments Silhouettes Die for cutting. Finally, I attached the sentiment with a thin strip (cut from the edge) of Dimensionals.
For a little sparkle, I added three Glossy Dots in coordinating colors.
