Die Cut Leaves with Veins

Card made with leaf dies, Banner Framelits and Stampin'UP! Gently Falling Stamp Set.
The unique thing about today's card is the veins on the leaves. The leaf shapes were cut with Stampin'UP!'s new Autumn Accents Die. This is a Bigz Die so it can cut multiple pieces of paper at a time.  But of course the paper it cuts is flat - no veins in the leaf.

Spider Web embossing folder makes veins in a leaf.
So, how DO you get the veins in the leaf? Well here's a little trick - use the Spider Web Embossing folder.  The folder is translucent so its easy to see to line up the cut leaf shape with the lines on the folder.  Don't you just love getting extra use from a product!

Other Details: The leaf images on this card are from a stamp set called Gently Falling and the colors are Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit and Cherry Cobbler.

Satin Stitched Ribbon - September Back to Spool special

You could easily turn this card into a Thanksgiving Card - or any other event. The sentiment I used is from a set called Itty Bitty Banners. I could have cut the banner by hand, but this is another one of Stampin'UP!'s matched sets (a set that matches a die or a punch. In this case the stamp set goes with the Bitty Banners Framelits.  The framelits can of course be used with any thing that fits inside them.

The ribbon is the Satin Stitched ribbon that is part of the Back to Spool special for September.  You get a FREE spool of this ribbon with every $40 purchase this month.  For this card I just tied a knot in the ribbon and then threaded the two ends through 2 holes in the button and glued it to the card.
