French Foliage

This card uses new stamp sets from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  The leaves are from the set French Foliage. This set is really beautiful and makes a quick and easy card! To make this card I randomly stamped some different leaves around the edges of the white card stock using old olive, more mustard and cajun craze ink, leaving room for the sentiment. The saying is from the set Day of Gratitude, another Holiday mini set and is stamped with early espresso ink.

To make the bow I used the "fork" bow technique. If you haven't tried this, it's a super easy and fun way  to make really cute bows! I am horrible at making bows but now that I learned how to do them this way, I will probably do them more often! To see how it's done, attend a class or book a workshop with me!

Hope you had a great holiday weekend!

Was debating about getting that stamp set but after seeing your card I see how pretty it really is. I am not a follower over from SC.
