Gather Together

I have to say that this bundle is one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog. This color palette, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock & Night of Navy just speak to me. Blues and greens have always been my favorites. I needed two anniversary cards, and 2 thank you cards. So this is what I came up with.

First I stamped and die cut a bunch of leaves in each of the 3 colors. The leaves on this bundle emboss and die cut all at once. So the leaves look great. You can see the Foil leaves how pretty they are. But what if you want to take it up a notch?

Simply lay the leaf dies on your ink pad, smooch (technical term) (spelling) and carefully take and put them onto the coordinating cardstock and die cut. Now your leaves are two tone. Pretty cool, right?

My card layers are:

4 1/4″ x 11″ card base,

layer #1, 4″ x 5 1/4″,

last layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″ Very Vanilla, embossed with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.

Once you have all your layers, add a 2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP towards the bottom of the card. Wrap a piece of the 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around and tie into a bow. Then you start adding all your leaves. I only used Glue Dots on the bottom of each leaf, and tuck them behind the bow. I curled the leaves with my Bone Folder before adding the Glue Dots. I finished off the cards by adding a few of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

This card has a Night of Navy card base, and a layer of Pretty Peacock.

The happy anniversary is from the Itty Bitty Greetings. The thank you below is from the Free as a Bird Stamp Set.

This next card has a Pretty Peacock card base and an layer of Old Olive.

Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla piece to the inside of your card. Supply List:

And look what is coming up for Paper Pumpkin.
