Here is another card using the Sizzix Cut Out Leaves die set. This time I have cut the leaves INTO white card, then drawn round the die and cut it out. This creates individual leaves that I can arrange however I want. As we are just moving in to Autumn I thought a red/orange/yellow colour scheme was appropriate.
To Make the Card
Choose one of the leaf dies from the set, I chose one with quite an intricate design. The die will cut the leaf design INTO the card, leave the die in position and lightly draw round it with pencil. Remove the die and cut out the leaf shape. Repeat this for the other four leaves, using white card for them all.
Select patterned paper in shades of yellow, orange and red and again draw round the leaf die and cut it out. Cut different shades of the paper to create and ombre effect. Glue the patterned paper behind each of the die cut leaves.
Cut a strip of light brown card approximately 4.5cm wide and 14.75cm long. Adhere this to the front of a white A6 blank card about 1.5cm in from the left edge. Cut a piece of white card approx. 3.8cm x 14.75cm, score it at .5cm in from each of the long sides. Adhere this over the brown strip and adhere the leaves in an overlapping pattern over the white strip. Finish the card off with a stamped greeting in a co-ordinating ink colour, to the right of the decorated panel.
I like the finished product with it’s cascade of Autumn coloured leaves. Thank you for visiting, please leave a comment if you have a minute to let me know what you think.
