I learned how to make these absolutely beautiful leaves and haven’t been able to stop. They are so easy but the results are over the top!  

In the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, there are two leaf dies.  One is detailed, the other is an outline and you’ll need both of them.  The detailed one on my card is cut out using Copper Foil.  It comes in a 2 sheet package and each one is 12″ x 12″. Before running it through the Big Shot, I adhered a small piece of a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the foil to make the back sticky.  

Next, the outline of the leaf is cut out using Vellum cardstock.  To achieve that stained glass look, using a sponge dauber and a stamp pad, add color to the vellum.  Attach the copper leaf to the vellum and you’ve got a gorgeous leaf!  Can you believe how easy that is??!!

More Details

  • The sentiment comes from the stamp set Colorful Seasons (it can be purchased as part of the Colorful Seasons bundle or separately).  It was inked up with Memento ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  
  • The top layer of Very Vanilla cardstock was run through the Big Shot using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.
  • The leaves were colored with ink daubers and cardstock vellum using Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry stamp pads.
  • The base of the card is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and the second layer is Crushed Curry.

If you give these leaves a try, I’d love to hear from you!! Later this week I’ll share a leaf I made using Silver Foil.  Just as beautiful!  

Have a great day!
