To gain the effect on the leaves, I have used Basic Black Archival Ink. Then stamped on Peekaboo Peach card and on the Vellum card. I die cut them with the Leaflets Framelit Dies. Then used a Stampin’ Spritzer to spray the back of both leaves. I then scrunched them up in my hand, flattened them out , re-scrunched them and flattened them out. They ae adhered with Glue Dots. The Basic Black Metallic Thread is used as an embellishment to give them that ‘hanging look.

  1. Lovely card. love love love the texture on those leaves. That fancy fold is beautiful.

    1. Thanks so very much Renee and it’s really not a fancy fold, just some extra panels. I appreciate you stopping by to leave a comment

  2. Gorgeous Libby. Love the scrunched leaves – adds such fabulous texture and thoughts of autumn leaves. Lou x

  3. gorgeous card Libby … I love love love the crumpled vellum. I did have to take a double take when sorting my retired sets and will be sad to see vintage leaves retire

  4. Awesome card Libby. Isn’t amazing how a little extra effort and scrunching those leaves takes it another level?!
