Gum leaves birthday


Hi, I've been busy with a few cards this weekend, making up for lost time!

I made another card with this gum leaves stamp but did a more CAS version this time. The cue card at CASology this week is Country.

The gum tree is a fairly iconic tree here in Australia, so it always evokes thoughts of home. I live in a rural area too and am surrounded by gum trees!

Materials used: Kaszazz gum leaves stamp; Craf tConcepts Stately embossing folder; Prismacolor pencils; Memory Box twigs & berries die;

Thanks for visiting :)

  12. Great coloring on your pretty stamp. This is a lovely image, & enjoyed hearing a bit about your country. Loved the embossing & your coloring was really striking against the dark of the background. Your scor lines on the edges really made a perfect mat for the lovely focal point. TFS & Hugs
