I started off with a Chocolate Chip side opening landscape A6 card. I stamped the scalloped circle in Baja Breeze ink, cut it out with a plain circle die and matted it on a larger Old Olive circle. I stamped the leaves and cut them out. After stamping the Best Wishes on the tag die I threaded it onto a strip of Old Olive CS and glued the strip to the card. I threaded thin Baja Breeze CS strips through the holes of a brown button and attached that to the card with a glue dot. I then rounded the top right corner.
For the inside of the card I stamped a cluster of leaves at the bottom of a white panel. I stamped the ginkgo leaf on the envelope flap to finish off. I LOVE this leaf set, the images are so realistic and detailed!
Next I made a BRAK card using a half price Penny Black cling background stamp. Oh my goodness, this is a beautiful stamp and it cost under £4 - a fab bargain! I stamped the background on Very Vanilla CS using Elegant Eggplant ink, trimmed the panel and sponged the edges. I die cut another ribbon tag and threaded it onto a length of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon which I taped to the back of the vanilla panel which I glued to my Old Olive card base. I put a charm brad in the centre of an Old Olive felt flower and attached that to the tag. I stamped and punched the sentiment element, popped it up and then added the decorative corners. This background is so gorgeous I didn't want to cover it up too much.
I used the background stamp again to make strips for inside the card and for the envelope. I inked the sentiment stamp with Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant markers.
