I was in our backyard this afternoon playing "stick" with Chanel. We stopped to look at the oak tree. SO pretty right now - it's always the last to drop leaves. I got to thinking about the leaves and what I could do with them. So that was the end of "stick"!
I brought some leaves in of varying sizes, and I decided to use them on cards. First, I'll let you know that the pattern is from Card Maker magazine. Ok, so on to the leaves.
I took a leaf and rubbed it with Dazzle Versamark. I sprinkled it with clear powder and embossed it. What a shine came from this process - and what a great way to preserve the leaf in the process.
I used Barn Red and New England Ivy Textured CS from CTMH to create the card. The stamp set is TLC and is also from CTMH. I used my Script Cuttlebug folder for the front for dimension
What fun to use something from nature to send away as a card. If you aren't near your loved ones, you can send a little piece of yourself to them!
