Mix-It-UP! Monday Vintage Leaves

Happy Monday My Blogger Friends!
Today is Mix It UP! Monday and I have an upgraded version of the card I shared with you yesterday.  I used the exact same product that was used to create yesterday's card ....... but added a couple additional products (found in the 2015 Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog) to bring this card up to the next stamping level.
Here is my card from yesterday (on the left) and my Mix-It-UP! Monday card for today (on the right). 
 I have to say.........This is one stepped up card.
To start out I used the 'Woodland Embossing Folder' on my Soft Suede background panel.  I then grabbed my Early Espresso sponge and lightly went over the surface of my embossed panel with some ink.
Next I stamped my three leaves and die-cut them out (with the Leaflets Framelits) ...... And arranged them onto two layers of circles that were die-cut out using the Circle Framelit dies.
My Burlap Ribbon was folded over to create a hanging banner tail ....... and then I was able to arrange my three leaves and sentiment directly to the Burlap Ribbon.
Here's a close-up of what the whole arrangement looked like when I had it completed.

I have to say ....... Both of these cards are GORGEOUS and both were equally FUN to make.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share a 3-D Tuesday project with you ....... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. Oh! Love the added tree texture in the background. So sophisticated and perfect for autumn.

  2. Wow...dramatic difference. I too love the Woodland texture in the background. What an awesome layout! Love the placement of the sentiment with the button. So very nicely done!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us!
