This birch tree paper is gorgeous! I love it so much! I thought it would be great to use as a background and add a pop of color....so I did! I cut a card base from Neenah cardstock and then cut the paper to fit the whole front of the card.
I used a bunch of inks for this project. I didn't want any one leaf to be the same. I used Well Red, Orange County, Sunny Day, and Doc Brown inks from Studio Calico. From Heidi Swapp I used Mustard and Coral inks. And I used some new Memento inks in Rhubarb Stalk, Potters Clay, Tangelo, and Dandelion inks.
I used the rock and roll technique to give color and dimension to my stamped leaves. I first inked up my stamp in a lighter color and then (without stamping) inked up just the edges of the stamp by rolling it in a darker ink color. I stamped all of my leaves on Neenah cardstock and also stamped the outlines (Doc Brown ink) and then cut them out with my Cutter Bee scissors.
I adhered one of the kraft colored banners from the kit in the middle of the card and then began gluing my leaves around it. I tucked some behind the banner and put some on top. I used my Tombow Mono Multi glue to stick them down. Once they were all glued down I added some foam tape to the back of the acrylic sentiment and stuck it down.
Here's the video:
That's it! It's so simple...but I really love it! It's probably one of my favorite cards that I've made! I hope everyone has a great start to their work week! I'll see you next time!
