Two cards featuring Leaves

Time to share my two cards featuring Leaves...
I chose to use a die cut leaf sprig

  • With this longer die cut I decided to make a slim card
  • Die cut two leaf sprigs and used Distress Inks to loosely watercolour them
  • On matching green card I used the negative of the die cut to add a gold embossed sprig to the background
  • Die cut a decorative label and stamped and gold embossed the sentiment, then blended shabby shutters DI around the edge
  • Layered the panel on dark green to add a frame, assembled the elements and added a few gold gel pen dots

  • Again as the die cut is long I decided to use them as a pretty frame for the sentiment and made a square card.
  • Die cut four leaf sprigs and used Distress Oxide smooching to add the colours
  • On a square white panel I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair - Tulip red and heat embossed with Gold Pearl EP
  • Folded picked raspberry card to create the square card and attached all the elements...finishing off with a few White Nuvo Crystal Drop spots

  1. These designs are both spectacular, Robyn, and so distinctly different! I love that slimline design with the loosely watercolored leaves and I'm going to try and remember the way you added the gold sprig behind which takes your design to a new level! I also love the warm sunset colors you smooched to make your beautiful square design! Thank you for playing in TCC #37! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Beautiful! I absolutely LOVE the loose watercolouring

  3. The green card looks like it is made from linen. The colors red and yellow have always been one of my favorite color combinations. Well done Robyn!

  4. Two absolutely BEAUTIFUL and distinctly different cards Robyn and I'm loving both of them!! Your slimline card with the loosely water colored leaves is gorgeous and I love the addition of the gold leaves beneath too! Also that green cardstock that looks like fabric is awesome!! Your square card is just a beautiful and uses two of my favorite colors together for your smooshing! Lovely, lovely cards Robyn...thanks so much for sharing these beauties with us at The Twofer Challenge!! Hugs. :0)

  5. I love your watercolored leaves with the embossed gold leaves behind it! Such an elegant card, my friend! The smooshed leaves are so colorful and make a beautiful frame for this sentiment! I love how you've embossed with the gold over the red! Thanks for sharing with us at The Twofer Challenge!

  6. These are gorgeous! I love the green card with the gold embossing behind the die cut. So cool. And your second card is equally pretty. Love how you used our challenge colors! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
