Leafy Lattice

Hello!  If you've arrived here looking for my card as Guest Designer at Our Daily Bread Designs for October, please scroll down to the next post!



I've got the fun privilege of being a guest designer this week for the CASology Challenge - the cue card this week is LEAF.   
Though I love to make cards with combo's of dp, I get huge satisfaction from making cards with lots of clean, white space and then pops of bright color - embossing is a good way to add interest without losing that clean space. I used a lattice effect embossing folder for a background, then added a little row of popped up leaves in autumn colors. I left a strip along the bottom smooth for the sentiment which is stamped in SU's Real Red.  
I hope you have lots of fun designing a clean and simple card with the LEAF challenge!
Supplies include:
Joy Craft leaf dies 
(mistakenly listed these as Marianne Design dies originally, so sorry if I caused confusion!)
MFT More Essential Sentiments
Creative Expressions Lattice Folder
SU Real Red ink
SU card stock

Hi Bridget,
Could you contact me about the Leaves dies you've mentioned? You say they are Marianne Design dies, but these are not our designs, but I'm curious of which other brand they could be?

Please contact! winnie@marianndesign.nl

Thank you so much, Best regards,

Hi Bridget, I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog! I've just read your profile and see that you are married to someone from Northern Ireland, where I live! I also see that you love cards with Bible verses. Me too! Thanks for clearing up the mystery about the leaf dies! I have searched everywhere for them under Marianne and couldn't find them. Your card is totally adorable...I love it and now I need to get those little dies too! God bless Kx
