Elegant Leaves

So this week my cards are coming thick and fast (mainly because I've fallen behind on blogging, so I've got a stack to share.  Honest aren't I?!!!!).    Today's card share is a card based on a project I found from the Stampin' Up! Blog.  That card used the Best of Autumn stamp set (not yet available in Australia) and featured beautiful leaves.  Well a friend of mine just happens to love leaves, so I had to make my own version for her birthday:

I've used a very eclectic range of colours for this card but I think they all go together really well.  The background features Coastal Cabana, Summer Starfruit, Cajun Craze & Crumb Cake.  All stamped together and looking fab!  The Paris post marks were stamped in Gumball Green.

I've used the Cajun Craze CS as the card base and added a little sampler of ribbons, twine and lace, fastened to the card with a mini brad.  So cute and a great way of adding interest to the card.  You might notice that my stamped leaves have been double stamped for most of them.  I just stamped twice without reinking.  Easy!

I've also added a feature leaf stamped in Gumball Green.  The Gumball Green gives a bit of interest and has been handcut to sit over the ribbon.  I like it!!

So here's what I used:

Stamps: French Foliage
Inks: Basic Black, Gumball Green, Coastal Cabana, Summer Starfruit, Cajun Craze & Crumb Cake
Papers: Whisper White CS & Cajun Craze CS
Accessories: Pool Party Ribbon, Lace & Hemp Twine, mini brads
