After cutting the leaves for yesterday's card, I was left with a scrap I didn't want to toss, so I turned it into a card! (Imagine that!) After running it through the Big Shot with the best-embossing-folder-ever Subtle embossing folder, I was going to mat it on some green DSP. But then I had the thought that it would look really rich with a copper background. Since the greeting banner needed "something" to dress it up a bit, I sneaked a die cut out of the copper using the Stitched Seasons leaf die.
Everything is glued down well with multipurpose glue, so no one will ever know there's a piece of copper missing underneath. Except I just told everyone.....oops!
I do like the clean simplicity of this card, and the fact that it used what would ordinarily be discarded. This one is going to a friend who is having a rough time right now.
