I decided to use them to make a thank you card for my son before he asks for one last minute as he will want one for hospital staff when he has day surgery next week.
I decided to have a play with spritz inks and waterspritz too. I used them with the negative from the leaves die cut ,my makeshift stencil. You can just make out the shape beneath my die cut leaves.
I used the leaves from leaf collage ,they are such fun as with their stitching which I cut from white and kraft card, The white I used distress inks to colour the kraft I left naked. I randomly placed them on my spritzed layer from which I had cut a majestic maple leaf from. All dies are memory box or poppystamps as these make up the majority of my collection so far and they are just fab.
I coloured a scrap of card with bright blue as I love the bright clear skies that alternate with the dull cloudy ones of autumn. I decided to make a shaker card so used some of the smaller die cut leaves from the collage die but this time cut in metallic card as when the sun shines they seem to shine.
I added a small 'thank you' peel-off sticker to the front of the acetate .
I finished the card by adding a gold mirri matt to link to the mirri leaves in the shaker.
