Plaid Leaves


As promised I'm back with an "October Plaid" post. Today I'm sharing a fun fall plaid that has no white space in it. Instead of using it as a background, I die cut it into beautiful autumn leaves.
For a tutorial on creating this plaid background: Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog


Supplies used on this card:
Fun tip: To achieve the look of morning dew on your leaves: Stamp your versamark watermark ink pad on the leaf, add UTEE, lightly rub most of it off with your finger, and heat set.


I'd love to see your take on plaid, so stop by the current link party and showoff any creation that includes a product or two from one of the companies carried in the Cropstop store.

Beautiful, I love your plaid and I like that you used it for the leaves, looks great against the wood embossed background, like the sentiment with its design in the word!
