Twofer - Leaves

The Twofer Card Challenge this month is 'Leaves'.
I chose the Poppystamps 'Stitch Wreath' die to use on both my cards.

I am joining in the Twofer Card Challenge with this pair of card.


For my first card, I die cut the wreath in white card, used a MB 'Stitched Circle' die to cut it into a circle and added pastel green card behind.  This was layered onto a pink MB 'Stitched Scalloped Circle' die cut and some punched flowers added to the wreath of leaves.  The panel across the middle was made with a MB 'Stitched Country Border' die.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

My second card has the same Poppystamp 'Stitch Wreath' die, but using two MB 'Stitched Circle' dies to make a circle frame.  I had a snippet of alcohol inked card which I used behind the frame and as a mat for the sentiment.   The circle was layered on a a MB 'Stitched Square' die cut.  The two punched butterflies were layered and the top one it attached just by the body to leave the wings free.  Three tiny, clear gems on the body added a little sparkle.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:

  3. So pretty and love how you've used the wreath die in two very different ways and two very different occasions. The first one is beautiful and dainty and love the the alcohol inked card with the crisp white on the second x.

  15. I love that pretty wreath die Liz, and the two different versions, and I love the soft pastel colours of the first, and then the more dramatic colours of the AI's for the second one, and with a very pretty layered butterfly too. Two wonderful Twofer cards. x

  17. Love both of these, and how cleverly you've changed up the die to add the little sprigs of flowers. It's a pretty CAS design on both cards, with lots of color pops. This is a really cool die too! TFS & Hugs

  24. Wow, loving your twofers cards Liz! That circle leaf die is so cool and you have made two beautiful cards from it. I love your first one, the colors you chose - so soft, so feminine and so beautiful! The second one is equally beautiful, loving the alcohol inked background-it showcases that die's leave so beautifully! I love this challenge, but it might be enabling us all to much! lol Hugs, Brenda
