Falling Leaves Card

Falling leaves card by FlutterbyheidiWell this is the opposite end of the season to current Spring – although with the weather in England at the moment, I’m not sure the plants know which season it is!  I love how this card turned out, I always enjoy making tone on tone cards, but the pop of colour with the leaves brings it to life – and the falling leaves inside I think makes a lovely surprise and a simple bar inside turns a standard card into a pretty surprise. The use of really fine thread makes a difference to give the floating effect of the leaves.  If you have a guilottine type cutter it is easier to cut after embossing, but if you have a trimmer, then I recommend the method in the video.  So here you go with the dimensions…

That’s all for now – trying to get ahead with my April and May blog posts before I let myself play with the new catalogue goodies…not to mention clearing out my retired stamp sets 🙁 Although I have to admit I do keep quite a few for my personal use or for loaning out in my classes
