Vintage Leaves Border Cards

This card making is very relaxing stamping, the pattern is random and it always turns out so pretty.  Scroll down a bit and you'll it's a messy but fun process!  Here's the finished card.

Paper Measurements
Very Vanilla
2 3/8 x 3 5/8
3 ¾ x 5
Cajun or Artichoke or Olive or Curry or Taupe
2 5/8 x 3 7/8
4 x 5 14

Very Vanilla Card base 8 ½ x 5 ½ folded in half
Very Vanilla scrap for a leaf or leaves

On the large vanilla piece, stamp with 3-6 of the leaves in 3-6 colors focusing on the border (you’ll only see about a little over 1”

See how messy the middle looks on the left?  You cover that with the smaller vanilla piece.

Stamp and Cut out either a big leaf (Cajun oak leaf to the right or 3 leaves above). Adhere to small vanilla piece.  Stamp the sentiment.   Make a little linen thread bow and glue to the leaf stem.  Adhere all the layers together. 

I love a pretty package and this one is simple and inexpensive.  

To make the tag, mask the vanilla banner with post it notes -- see the photo below - can you see there's about a 3/4" strip of vanilla showing?Stamp 3 leaves with the leaf tips on the exposed vanilla.  

Adhere the stamped banner to a banner 1 size larger.   Clip to the Kraft Bag with a gold clip.   

There's a project sheet in the tab "Ideas, Projects and Free Things"  

Happy Stamping
