Tweet Leaves

Here is a great Fall card Gretchen Baron made using the Tweet Leaves with the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper. The colors and patters in the DSP are so beautiful and fresh and coordinate so well. Pair this with the Trust God stamp set and it's perfection!

She first used the Big Shot and the Autumn Accents Bigz Die to cut the maple leaf out of Very Vanilla Cardstock. Using Stampin' Write Markers (Island Indigo, More Mustard, Lucky Limeaide and Raspberry Ripple), she colored directly on the rubber and then aligned the stamp on the maple leaf die cut.... then sponged all the edges with a little Island Indigo ink to give it more contract and definition before attaching it to the focal square. The sentiment is stamped with Early Espresso Ink, made afaux bow and finished it off with a  Designer Natural Button.
Other supplies used for this card include Stampin' Dimensionals, 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon in Lucky Limeaide and a bit of Island Indigo Bakers Twine for the button. Here's some measurements in case you want to recreate this card for your own ...
