Below is pictured the front left side of the card. I used the beautiful Texture Chic Designer Series Paper on this card. I just can't get enough of this paper. It is so beautiful!

I want to walk you through the steps in creating this beautiful leaf. Using a Stamparatus, stamp the leaf in Soft Succulent on Very Vanilla cardstock.

With a dauber, I added Blushing Bride to the two sections on each side of the leaf, then stamped again.

Next, Petal Pink was dabbed on the seedlings, then stamped.

The last stamping step was to add Evening Evergreen to the stems and up the middle of the leaf.

Using a stamp with small dots from the Color and Contour stamp set, I randomly stamped Soft Succulent, Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, and some gold ink.

The leaf was then cut with largest Layering Circle die.
