Topic: Die Cuts
Start with a piece of white cardstock... that's the way this card began.
I sponged the cardstock with three Distress Inks (a yellow orange, a red, and a brown. Then I used a brown chalk ink to stamp a script in the background, wiping some of the ink off before stamping. I used a leafy branch die to cut from three solids and two printed papers. [BY THE WAY: I hate this die. Love the design but getting it to cut cleanly all the way through and release the leaves from the background is a giant, annoying pain.]
I glued all the leaves on the background, rounded the corners and sponged the edges with brown ink.
The feature panel is mounted on a dark green card base with rounded corners. A stamped sentiment on green is bordered in brown.
