fall leaf "thinking of you" card

Let someone special know you're thinking of them with a handmade card. The beautiful mulberry leaves on this card are sure to conjure up memories of Fall.
Step 1

Trim down a piece of cardstock to 10"x7" [25.4 cm x 17.8 cm] for the card base, then score it and fold it in half.
TIP: Folded size is 5"x7" [12.2 cm x 17.8 cm].

Step 2

Choose a complementary cardstock for the face of the card from the paper pad and cut it down to 4½"x6½" [11.4 cm x 16.5 cm]. Adhere it to the front of the card. Make sure the border is even all the way around the card.

Step 3

Cut a 2"x8" [5 cm x 20.3 cm] strip of the whitewash wood scrapbook paper. Lay the strip on the left part of the card, approximately ½" [1.3 cm] from the left edge. Wrap ½" [1.3 cm] over the top and bottom and adhere the ends to the inside of the front of the card.

Step 4

Choose the sentiment from the clear stamp set and press it on to the acrylic stamp block. Ink your stamp, then stamp the sentiment onto the card.

Step 5

Choose several mulberry leaves and position them on the whitewash wood strip. Adhere them in place, then place a gem in the center of the leaves with liquid glue. Let dry.
TIP: This card will fit into an A-7 envelope.
