To make my pretty leaf, I randomly sponged some red, orange and brown distress inks onto some yellow cardstock. I used a Darice leaf die to cut it out. Then I sponged some darker brown ink onto the die (with the die-cut still inside it) which gave the leaf veins some definition.
Finally, I added some sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush and a few sequins.
I made 12 of these cards to send out to family and friends. And now I've REALLY got to buckle down and get my Christmas cards done. I'm starting to get a little panicky about my Christmas preparations. I should know by now that it happens every year. I'm always scrambling during the last weeks before the holidays.
How about you? Are you through making Christmas cards? Done shopping and wrapping? Ready to decorate the house? Baked goods in the freezer? If so, I'm SO impressed!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
