Clean & Simple Leaves
I love these three colors together for this week's color challenge! I decided to go for a slightly more modern twist for my card. With clean lines and a simple design, the colors really pop!
Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out six leaves on piece of Whisper White card stock. I took my 1 3/4" Circle Punch and punched around each of those leaf openings. I then took pieces of Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy and Mint Macaron and punched leaves of out them. I adhered the six white circles onto a piece of Mint Macaron and then inlaid a leaf into each opening. It's hard to tell, but to add even more interest, I used Wink of Stella and put it on each leaf. The words are from the Sunny Days stamp set and inked in Night of Navy ink. You may be wondering where I got the Mossy Meadow bow from. I took a piece of White Baker's Twine and using my Mossy Meadow ink pad and sponge, I sponged it until I achieved the tone of color I wanted. Easy peasy! Make sure you wait a few minutes for the ink to soak in and dry before tying it into a bow or you'll have ink all over your fingers. Ask me how I know. *wink wink* This card is going to a dear friend who's going through some rough times now with with family. I thought this might be a little unexpected comfort for her to find in her mailbox.
