Hello Crafters and welcome back! Waffle Flower has monthly challenges and I’m super excited to be co-hosting week one with my special friend Rachel! This week’s theme is Leaves, which is just perfect for the upcoming fall weather. You can head over to Waffle Flower for all the challenge details! So let’s get into my project!
For my project, I opted to use the Fall Leaves Die set, along with a couple of other Waffle Flower products. I began by cutting the solid leaf dies from watercolor paper twice. I got out a water brush and my Karin Brushmarkers to do a little bit of watercoloring on them. Very quick and simple technique of adding water to the leaves and dropping in color from the markers. Once satisfied with the colors, I set them aside to dry.
While those were drying, I went ahead and cut the leaf detail for all of the leaves from mirror gold cardstock. I also went ahead and cut the Triple Line Diamond Panel Die from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and placed foam tape strategically on the back of it.
I adhered the gold leaf detail to the solid leaves using liquid glue. Now that I had the panel cut and the leaves ready to do, I needed to decided on a sentiment. The Oversized Smile Word Die fit within the space that I had to work with, so I cut it once from that same mirror gold cardstock and three more times from Neenah 110lb cardstock and glued all of those together.
I began adhering the leaves to the die cut panel using glue, creating a row at the top and the bottom. Once those were all done, I trimmed off the stems. Since I had previously put foam tape on the back of the die cut panel, I went ahead and adhered that to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb as well.
The only thing left to do was glue the sentiment in the center of the panel. I didn’t even add bling to this card! Can you believe that? I can’t, actually! I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope you’ll join us in the challenge! Leaves is such a great theme for this month! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
