Laurel Leaves

I used the pretty new Simon Says Stamp Laurel Leaves Background Plate die, the fun new CZ Design Merry and Bright from the new Simon Peace on Earth release, and Simon Peace Love Hope Joy die to make a couple Christmas cards...
I think this background die is so pretty and versatile!  I chose to put a sentiment in the middle of all the pretty leaves, but also chose to cut away a few of the leaves, to give the sentiments some room to shine.  This first card, I die cut strips of colored cardstock, adhered to another piece of cardstock. I die cut the leaves twice, adhered together, and adhered to the strips.  I die cut and layered the sentiment and adhered to the card...done!  Here's a close up...
The second one, I used a sentiment die from the STAMPtember® release with the leaves...
I blended Broken China distress oxide ink on white cardstock and adhered the leaves over it.  I then took my white gel pen and put snow flakes all over the blue panel.  I added the layered gold sentiment and gave the leaves a little dimension by gently folding them in the centers.  
Here's a close up...
Christmas can't come fast enough this year!!  Hope you are having a great start to your week, and staying healthy and safe!
