Papertrey Leaf print cards

Today I'm sharing a card which I have made this week using my Papertrey leaf die which can be used for various different occasions. Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card for a friend, and its not something I usually have to hand (although I have made a spare one to keep for the future).

For sympathy cards I like to keep the colours muted and tonal, so I choose to use Antique Linen distress ink and then some background paper which matched in well.
I cut out a leaf from some white card using my papertrey leaf dies and then embossed with CB script folder to give it some texture. After a quick sponge with the distress ink and some basic matt and layers I stamped the sentiment underneath in more antique linen ink.
This card is actually really versatile, and I made it again but just changed the sentiment.

I think this card would work in various different colour ways too to give it a more upbeat look. I think I'll definitely make it in green and some autumn colours!


  1. Wonderful card, Bee! Love it.
    Hugs and smiles

  2. Beautiful card! I hear you, I never have a sympathy card on hand and it's so tough to make one.
    Thanks for your comment on the Paper Smooches blog too.. :)
