Today we're creating a card with Loyal Leaves - Easy Quick and Beautiful!
The Loyal Leaves stamp set is really a pretty set with the fine veined leaves and a wonderful size especially for what we are doing today--creating a "designer" type paper background...
This stamp set has several unique greetings that we don't find in our more typical greetings, e.g. Older & Wiser, missing you, You are my Hero.
We're using three greens today that all have some blue in them..Just Jade, Shaded Spruce, and Mint Macaron--they are a wonderful blend of light, medium and dark in shades.
I'll give you the simple steps to create the card. Following the directions you'll find the supply list--use that to order what you'll need to create this card.
