The Card Concept is back!! We had so many players during our extended summer challenge, thank you for playing along all summer. I do hope that you continue playing especially with our amazing fall challenges. Check this one out! And notice the helpful color swatches on the graphic.
I created my Clean and Layered card with this amazing Botanicuts set from The Greetery. I was surprised to find it in my not-yet-used stash because I loved it from the moment I saw it. In using it, I loved it even more than I thought I would. I didn't realize it when I got it, but that branch including the veins for the leaves is already put together so you get that graceful swoop without any extra work. Of course, there are extra pieces so you can arrange it yourself too.
I did a bit of work on the leaves to make them fall-like. The edges are sponged with a coordinating color. Then I splattered them with some sparkle ink (I love frost on the leaves in the fall) and with some dark brown ink. I'm a bit afraid of splattering (I prefer having complete control) so they are a bit too subtle. I stopped before I got a big unplanned splatter!
