Leaf Column Cards

Another wonderful die from Simon Says Stamp's Summer Release, Leaf Column Outline die, and I made a couple cards with some inspiration from a Hallmark store card(a card with die cuts having the fine details remain in the die cut space)...
I die cut the leaves from kraft paper and used a dauber to sponge some color to a glossy piece of paper...
Then I placed the paper behind the die cut and added the sentiment with versamark and white embossing powder.

My daughter in Tennessee was wanting for wedding cards, I thought making a long, Rustic white card with a lovely sentiment from a new Avery Elle stamp set with this die was fitting.  The card measures 4" x 7".   I popped up and gave the Leaves depth.  Here's a close up...

This is a pic to show you how I adhered the stems to the back side of the card panels...with Scor Tape(the yellow is the paper that was underneath the off white paper I was working with...the yellow simply showing through), putting small strips of Scor Tape across each part of each stem(7 pieces of tape per stem...I know lots of taping, but not hard and didn't take long)...
Whether simple or a little more complex...SO MUCH FUN!!!   Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
