This simple die cut leaf card is so charming and so easy to make – get all the sweet details!

It’s starting to feel a little fall-ish some nights and it won’t be long before the leaves are sharing their glorious shades in the golden light of Autumn. This simple die cut leaf card brings all of that into play and gives us a little tingle of excitement for the coming season. Jamie created this for us and she’s going to walk us through her steps of the making so we can create our own versions using her design.

Cut a sheet of decorative paper from the Harvest Time Paper Pad 4″ x 5 1/4″ and glue it to a top folding kraft colored card. Glue a strip black and white striped decorative paper to the right side and add a very narrow strip of orange cardstock over the seam.

Place jute ribbon on an Adhesive Transfer Sheet to get the adhesive on the back. Place this on the left side of the patterned paper.

Sprinkle the jute ribbon with Crystal Micro Glitter and shake off the excess for a hint of sparkle. (Rubbernecker here – if you could see this effect in real life…..it’s SO pretty and it just doesn’t show up in the photos!)

Die-cut leaves using the Maple Leaves Die from kraft colored cardstock and polka dots decorative paper. Layer the decorative paper leaves to the top of the kraft colored leaves, slightly offset.

Glue the orange leaves to the top and the bottom of the jute ribbon. Then sde-cut a rectangle with orange paper from the paper pad using the Outside Scallop Frame Die and pop it up in the center of the jute ribbon. Then pop up the green leaf in the center of the orange rectangle.

Stamp the sentiment from Kittie Says Friend, on a white strip of white cardstock with black ink. Layer this onto a slightly larger orange strip and pop it up diagonally at the top of the card. Add two enamel dots to the left of the sentiment for a coordinating accent.
