Leaf Collage, Wrapped Stitch Rectangles and Garden Sketches by Jean Okimoto

P1020040

Layer a pile of watercolored leaves  from the Leaf Collage die onto a Wrapped Stitch Rectangle for a simple fall card.  Add a greeting - and some sequins from Birch Press - and you're ready for any occasion.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a splashy, glittery card for you today.

Raid your stash for some watercolored papers in shades of orange, coral and pink.   (I'm not quite ready to completely switch over to fall colors.)  Highlight some of the papers with Imagine Crafts Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set them aside to dry..  

Cut bright coral glittered cardstock and the watercolored papers with Leaf Collage. 

Brayer Rocket Red Gold Brilliance onto smooth white cardstock.  Dry the ink.  Cut it with the 2" x 3.25" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.  Layer the leaves onto the rectangle

Cut an accent strip of flamingo-colored cardstock with one of the larger Wrapped Stitch Rectangle dies.  Trim it to .75" x 4.5".    

Stamp the greeting - from the Garden Sketches Clear Stamp Set - onto a scrap of the watercolored paper with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide.  Heat-set the ink.  Trim the greeting with the coordinating Garden Sketches die.

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded 5.5" square sage notecard - use foam dots for the greeting.

Add the dark coppery-bronze sequins from Birch Press' Not So Heavy Metal sequin set.  View the entire Birch Press collection of sequins and accents - they're perfect for fall and holiday cards - and so pretty you'll want them all!
