Designer Tip: Cut leaves from black suede and offset behind the gold for a shadow effect.



  1. Card front: Place your card with the fold on the left. Cover with black cardstock. Mat a 4"x5 1/2" North Country blue leaves paper on black suede with a 1/8" border, then on North Country orange fern paper with a 1/4" border and glue on the card center.
  2. Use VersaMark to stamp "May YOUR heart..." on the top right corner, cover with embossing powder and heat to melt.
  3. Die cut the following leaves from Black Suede: two large, one medium, two small. Cut the following leaves from metallic gold: two large, one medium, two small.
  4. Glue the suede leaves as shown. Glue the gold leaves as shown, off-setting slightly on each suede leaf to create a shadowed effect.
  5. Card inside: Glue a 5"x 3 1/2" North Country blue leaves paper at the lower edge. Die cut a large leaf from the lower left corner of a 5"x6 1/2" suede paper. Remove the leaf and glue the paper to your card.
  6. Stamp and emboss "Find peace..." in the evacuated leaf area. Zot a small brown swirl ribbon knot as shown.
