If you are unfamiliar with this technique there are some video tutorials included over on the challenge blog.
Happy Little Stampers is the sponsor for this month and one lucky winner will receive a stamp set!
So, onto my card. I wanted to use a leaf die that is new to my stash and decided to create a sympathy card in soft colours.
I started by die cutting the leaf from a panel of white cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment in black. Next I cut a panel of beige cardstock, slightly larger to create a border, and adhered the white cardstock to it ensuring that there was lots of adhesive behind the leaf aperture. I then die cut the leaf again from the same beige cardstock and gently blended the edges with Distress Ink before adhering in the aperture. The whole panel was then adhered to the cardbase using 3D foam.
