Iím back again with another new Cuttlebug embossing folder, this one is called Leafy Branch. I rearranged the items on this card several times because I wanted to be stingy about how much of the leaves would be covered up - thatís how I settled with the half oval shape. Here again I tried to keep things pretty simple. The background is colored with chalks and I tried to use as light a touch as possible. Once finished, I went over it with a chalk pencil, to add just a tiny bit of shading to the sides of the leaves. The half oval is the largest of the set and is cut twice and offset just a little bit to give some dimension. The left side scallop is done with the Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch. Instead of lining it up to make a perfect scallop, I spaced it out and missed a scallop so that I could keep the flat edge of the paper.
Although the details are listed here, there is much more detailed info and closeups on my blog. The entry for this card is here:
