Happy Fall

Here's some CAS (Clean and Simple) cards that use some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress combined with beautiful leaves from Nature.  How perfect are these for fall time?  I have a dear friend at church who loves to press leaves and flowers and then gives them to me as I make greeting cards from them.

This card is use brown bag cardstock as the base.  I layered the leaf on some simple Neenah Solar White , then layered it on some Mica/Metallic Emerald.  I added a simple sticker sentiment "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."

Here's an additional pressed leaf from my local area that I mounted onto some wonderful kraft paper;  It's quick and easy to create your own square cards by cutting your 8.5x11" sheets to 5.5x11" sheets.  You can then save your left over paper for all those die cuts.

Hope you have a beautiful fall day!

I'm impressed that you used real leaves on your cards. Mine would probably crumble to bits.

Using pressed leaves makes these cards even more special! I have some pressed leaves and flowers in my craft stash and really should pull them out to use.
