AAA Cards Game #52

I’m happy to be here with you today with a post for AAA Cards Challenge #52: Thanks/Thanksgiving as a member of the AAA Cards Design Team.

Here’s my card:

IMG_9416editedcrop To makes this card:

1. I inked up a leaf from a tree in my yard. I used the inked up leaf as a stamp,  pressing down & rubbing on the back of the leaf with piece of scrap paper.

2. After letting it dry, I fussy cut the leaves out & used a pinked die to trim the edges.

3. Then I spritzed the stamped leaf with some water and let the ink run.

4. I used my heat gun to dry the leaf and then spritzed on some Smooch Spritz and traced the outside with a black journal pen.

5. I stamped on the sentiment & then affixed the leaf panel to the card base with foam tape.IMG_9418editedcrop

I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So amazing that you did this with a leaf from your backyard – so much lovelier than any stamp can do! I love the splatters and sketchy outlines that you added in too – they create such a great organic feel!
