The autumn/winter catalogue heralds the coming of autumn. For me that means rich warm colours. It also normally means some form of tartan, either in a scarf or something else. I was really delighted to see the Plaid Tidings Dsp. So today I am showcasing my love of plaid leaves.
LOVE OF LEAVES
I also love Leaves. And Stitched Dies. Imagine my delight on seeing Stitched Leaves in the new catalogue along with matching Dies. Wow!.
Teaming some really pretty plaid and the leaves seemed a really logical step in my mind. Misty Moonlight cardstock shows off the gorgeous Balmy Blue Plaid.
Banners Pick A Punch
This is another of those awesome punches that does 6 sizes. This one does, 3 sizes in each of the shapes. Perfect for creating the banners and layers I needed to finish this card off. The three sizes are 1/2”. 3/4” and 1”.
Clean and Simple
The leaf dies and the plaid paper make such a gorgeous clean and simple card. The papers do all the talking for you.
Use an A4 piece of Cardstock – and score it in half at 5 7/8th”. Cut a piece of whisper white to 5 5/8th” x 8”
Position the Dies (from the Stitched Leaf Dies) set that you want to use on the whisper white cardstock. The leaves that you cut out – put to one side.
Cut your plaid to 3 1/2” x 6”. Stick this behind the leaves that you cut out on the whisper white cardstock.
Stick the whisper white cardstock to the Misty Moonlight base.
Cut a 1” strip of the plaid dsp and stick down the left hand side of your card.
Use the remains of the plaid to create banners for the front and inside of your card.
In my card I have heat embossed the word HELLO as one of my banners.
The leaves you have cut out – using dauber colour these in to match your choice of plaid. Adhere these to the inside of your card – together with a banner made from your cardstock.
