Simple leaf

A simple little card using some of my favourite colours from the Earth Elements® family. The card measures 9cm square.

The leaf background is stamped off in Old Olive, ie it was stamped first on scrap paper and then on the cardstock to create a lighter shade. The Chocolate Chip was then stamped on top, positioned with the Stamp-a-ma-jig®.

The twill tape is fabulous because, as you can see, you can stamp on it! It comes in three widths, too.

Stamps: Shapes and Shadows (p54)
Cardstock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Versamark®
Accessories: Twill Tape (p87)
