COTTAGE LEAF

Memory Box has a challenge to use black and white and I needed a "thinking of you" card.  



I cut a black and a white leaf, cut off the black leaves on one side and then glued it onto the white.  Went around the edges of the black with a black pen and only glued it all down on the stem part so the leaves would pop up.  Stamped the sentiment in black and embossed with clear powder to make it kind of shiny.  Rounded corners and done!  I think the cottage leaf is discontinued but did find it on eBay and other sites. It took me longer to figure what I was going to design than to actually make the card!!



Thanks for stopping by.  Betty
