Embossed Leaves Card for Autumn

For this project you will need:

- blank off-white card
- off-white cardstock
- olive green textured cardstock
- fiber ribbon
- clear stamp with Birthday wish
- black pigment ink
- clear embossing powder heat source for embossing
- die cutting machine and Spellbinders leaf templates for cutting and embossing (Spellbinder die cut stencils are compatible
  with the Wizard and with the Double-Do machines.)
- paper punches in 1 3/8 inch and 1 3/4 inch square shapes
- 1 olive green mini brads
- 3-D foam tape
- double sided adhesive tape


1. Emboss and cut each of the three leaves on off-white paper.
2. Use the small square punch to cut out three olive green squares. Use the larger square punch to cut out three off-white squares. Adhere the green squares onto the white squares. Use 3-D foam tape to adhere the leaves onto the green squares.
3. Cut out a 2 3/8 inch wide strip to fit the front of your card. Adhere a fiber ribbon strip to the top and bottom of this piece before adhering it to the card. Now cut a 3/8 inch strip and stick it across the green rectangle. Now you may adhere the 3 squares to the card.
4. Stamp your birthday wish to a scrap piece of off-white cardstock and cut out in a rectangle shape. Adhere this onto olive green structure cardstock and cut out leaving a small border on three sides and a wider border on the right short side. Punch a small hole to the right side of the rectangle and insert the brad. Adhere this piece now onto the bottom right of the card.
