I went through all my leaf stamps and dies and when I came upon the die from Concord and 9th I knew I had found the perfect thing to make two different cards for two different occasions.
The leaf without its stem looks just like a heart so I made an anniversary card. I cut them from some tissue paper covered cardstock that I had in my stash. By coating the back with multi medium matte, I kept all the little pieces intact. A silver embossed sentiment from PTI on a Memory Box die that I altered top off the Dove Gray base.
I took a smooshed background that I used for another card and cut more of the C9 leaves along with some from MFT. I arranged them on a circle cut with SSS stitched circles from Dark Chocolate.
I placed the wreath on some Altenew Spicy Yogurt cs, added a few brown branches from C9 and the PTI sentiment. So there you have it. Two different layouts for anniversary and Thanksgiving.
I have an update: I talked with my brother Fred and he and my brother Steve and families are both safe from Hurricane Florence. Fred's mother-in-law is staying with them because her house is under water as are two of their rental properties. At the time I talked with him they didn't know about his veterinary clinic or their vacation home.
Thanks for dropping by.
