Maple Leaf

Hi all!

Today I made another autumn card with the Grand Maple Frame die from Memory Box and some Nuvo Shimmer Powders.

I first die cut the Maple Leaf from a piece of white cardstock. Then I used some Nuvo Shimmer Powders on another piece of cardstock to create the background. When I added the white maple leaf on top of this background I thought it was better to give the outer circle also some color so I used the same Nuvo Shimmer powders for this frame and added this on top. Now it also has some dimension.

Finally I stamped the sentiment with Altenew Echanted Gold pigment ink and used foam tape to adhere it.
