I have a quick card to share with you all today! I just got this Itty Bitty Unity stamp - 'Leaf Without You!' (Bella Blvd), and was inspired. I also was in need of a project that's 'something green' - whether it being color green (esp. St. Patrick's day) or being recycled decor item. There's a linky party that just started over at Paper Issues and of course, being on their creative team, I wanted to have something to link up! If you have any thing that you can link up, I'm sure that Paper Issues would LOVE to see!
I challenged myself to keep this as clean and simple as possible (CAS) and this is what I came up with.
So, I was really excited about this card, and I show my hubby what I had made last night... and he looked confused. Didn't he not like it? What was wrong with this card? After asking him why he reacted the way he did, he told me that he doesn't get it - why would I make a card like that? It turns out that he thought that the 'leaf' was in place of 'leave'... "I don't know how I'd leave without you!" LOL! My hubby must've been out of it. He's usually pretty clever and 'gets' things faster than I do!
Anyway, a couple more pics:
The leaves totally follows the 'style' of the stamp, right? I stamped the same image on various green patterned papers and cut each of the leaves out to add 'color' to the stamp. The actual cut out leaves were from here. I layered the leaves with dark brown paper on the backing and added dimension by having some adhered with foam tape.
Beautiful stamp, isn't it? That green button was custom made by me! (with my Epiphany Button Studio Round 20)
