Die Cut Leaves

This is one of the cards I made last month at Terri's fun Stamp-a-Stack.  I had set those cards aside and have not been back to that part of my workroom in a while. It's such a mess so I avoid going over there!!!  But it's time to suck it up and get the area cleaned up!!!  I love a clean space so I can just fill it back up again with more stuff I don't want to deal with right away!!  Why do I do that?  Does anyone know the answer to that question?  

This was such a fun card to make.  You ran the card stock through the Big Shot with the Sizzix leaf die and then you took this wad of rubber bands and colored them.  I think there is something like 30 rubber bands tie wrapped together.  You tap the end on the ink pad, much like you would do for sponging.  And then you just tap it on your card stock.  It creates a very fun and interesting look. Then we did the part I just hate doing.  You scrunch up a perfectly good leaf!!! LOL  It just kills me to do that.  But I do like the effect so I have been learning to just roll with it!  

It's a very simple card to make.  And a very fall looking card.  This would also be great for a masculine card too.  A get well, birthday and of course the thinking of you card.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
