Fall Leaves of Nature Tag Card

Made for the ECD Susan Tierney-Cockburn Design Team

Happy Fall! Today I'm sharing with you this colorful Fall card. The leaves are so fun to make! Google "Fall leaves" for many beautiful examples you may use as models for your leaves.

Making the Card

1. Cut a piece of bright yellow-orange cardstock 4 1/4 x 11 inches (half of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet). Fold in half. Optional: add a piece of leaf paper to inside flap (you could also stamp leaves and color them). With card closed, place main tag die at opening (across from fold) and cut. Trim both sides. Open card; on front side of card, line up leaves decorator die with hole and die cut.

2. Die cut a set of Woodland Leaves from white cardstock. Color using PanPastels. Draw veins using colored pencils. Use a fixative before shaping (this is optional but it will prevent some of the color from coming off onto the pad). Shape each leaf using Metal Tool Set and molding pad. Add more color if necessary.

3. Stamp quote All Things of Nature in black ink on light yellow cardstock. Using the label decorator die from the Katie Label Pivot Card, center and die cut quote. Use Distress Inks and ink blending tool to decorate the edges of label. (Optionally you could use PanPastels; be sure to use fixative.)

4. Adhere leaves, tag (dimensional tape), sequins, and buttons as shown.

5. Dye seam binding ribbon with Distress Inks. Tie ribbon through back tag hole and twine through front tag hole as shown.
