Beauty of Tomorrow Changing Leaves Card

by Joanne James11. September 2021 18:58

Hurrah - my new laptop has arrived - normal blogging can now resume! Today I'm sharing a quick card that uses Jen B's fabulous sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week:


I'm also linking up over at Inkspirational and the Alphabet Challenge who are all about leaves, and autumn leaves in particular. I took Jen's layout and used that panel to feature one whole large sentiment, from the 'Beauty of Tomorrow' stamp set - take a look:


I covered my card front with some retired Nature's Poem designer series paper - I love those almost skeletal leaves in colours that change from green to rust. I added a piece of folded gingham ribbon tied with twine below my sentiment, along with a sponged embossed leaf trio as an accent:


I love the clean and fresh feel of this card, even though the colours are definitely reminiscent of cooler days and changing seasons.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with my project for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

That background paper with the skeleton leaves is certainly striking - but the star of the show is that leaf - sponge embossed. Thank you for joining us at The Alphabet Challenge xx Lynda/Loopyloo DT

This is a lovely atumn card. The skeleton leaves on the background look fantastic and I really like that you used ribbon for the banner detail on the sketch. Thanks for playing along in our Autumn leaves challenge at Inkspirational.

That was such beautiful paper - i used mine all up. Love the way you've used the ribbon and twine in combo like this.

Beautiful card Joanne.  I love the background paper, but that die cut leaf is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for joining us at The Alphabet Challenge. Deborah xx
