Easy Gorgeous Leaves Collage Card

I was in need of some birthday cards and since it's now officially fall, I reached for the new Gorgeous Leaves stamp set (July-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog).

Add a touch of nature to your handmade cards using the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. Layer the leaves over the background images for a dimensional look, or use the background images alone to add visual texture. You also can easily create a border by stamping the trio of small leaves in groups.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Since I was making a lot of cards, I reached for the Stamparatus.  It made stamping 30+ cards a breeze!
  • For the speckled image, I stamped it in Basic Gray, but stamped off first.  Then collage the leaves stamps around it.  I kinda liked this "blocking" look.
  • The sentiment is from the very versatile Shaded Summer stamp set - filled with fabulous greetings!
  • The 2020-2022 In Color Square Gems pulled the card together.  Position them in a diamond shape for a different look.

If you love fall, they way I do, then you'll want to get the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set.  In fact, you'll probably want to check out the bundle (158609) with the Intricate Leaves Dies too, may as well save 10% on both (when you bundle).  

OR get the Gorgeous Leaves bundle for FREE when you join my DOstamperSTARS community during Sale-a-Bration.  See details below.
