For today, I wanted to share with you a card I am doing at a workshop on Sunday. The hostess had requested one fall and one Christmas card. She is having 10-14 people, so I needed to keep them both fairly simple. For the Christmas card, I CASE'd a card that is in our demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success! Just another perk of being a demonstrator...you don't even have to come up with any ideas if you don't want to; they give us plenty of resources! For the fall card, I wanted to use the theme challenge from The Paper Players.
I thought it would be great to show the ladies how to make the realistic leaves that I have been loving lately, so I came up with this super easy card.
For the background, I inked up one of our acrylic blocks with More Mustard and then sponged Cajun Craze around the edges. It didn't ink up perfectly the first time, but I was easily able to ink it up a few more times since it is clear! Here is a closer look at the leaf:
