A Pile of Leaves

Ahh, autumn is officially here! It is my most favorite season of all.  The colorful trees are like beautiful bouquets of flowers...except tree-sized.  I was inspired to create a card that displayed the beauty of the changing leaves.  

It was simple to create, although there was a bit of fussy cutting involved.  To create this card print out photographs of fallen leaves.  If you don't have any, you can find lots of pictures online (these are the leaves that I used).  Once the leaves are printed, cut each leaf out being sure not to leave any white space around the edges.  Next, adhere the leaves to a card base in a random layout, try not to leave any of the card base showing.  The goal is to mimic the way leaves look when they fall naturally to the ground.  Finally add a sentiment and baker's twine to finish the card.  I chose a wooden sentiment from Studio Calico to keep with the organic feel.

This was a different style of card for me, but I really like how it turned out.  

Thanks for looking!
