Since I made a card with the flowers from the Apple Blossoms dies I thought I should make one with the leaves. There are 2 sizes of leaves and multiples of each size (3 large and 6 small) in the die set. Remember the Apple Blossoms dies and 5 other die sets are only available until September 30 or while supplies last. Here is a link to the information about the 6 die sets-Perfect Partners.
This is an Early Espresso card base and the frame is Cajun Craze CS cut with the Fabulous Frames dies. The background piece is Very Vanilla CS with Crushed Curry and So Saffron ink blended with a Blending Brush. I used the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing folder to create the textured background. For the leaves I used Blending Brushes and Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut the leaves using both sizes of leaves. The branches were cut in Early Espresso CS.
It is hard to see but I also splattered some Wink of Stella on the textured background. I did this before I added the branches and the leaves. I like the subtle shimmer.
I had a few extra leaves so I added them to the inside of the card along with a strip of Early Espresso cardstock. The sentiment is from the Hello Harvest stamp set. It is stamped with Early Espresso ink and cut out using the Stylish Shapes dies.
