Set me free

The bird cage and the sentiment are Kaiser craft .The green paper is 'Pack your bags' from Kaiser craft,the bottom panel and tartan leaves are a double sided paper from Graphic45 Eden's Symphony .

Papercraft Star - challenge 66 - A leaf or leaves.

I haven't been around much and that is not likely to change for the next few weeks.After months of house hunting we finally found a place we can hopefully call home ,unfortunately the house move coincides with a two week holiday in Koh Samui and 2 long weekends away . I'm trying to pack boxes and suitcases at the same time ,always fun lol.

A leafy affair

I stamped the leaves with avocado green onto cream paper ,then stamped on the reverse side with a hessian or linen design (my stamp is from Ippity).Using a craft scalpel I cut around a half of each leaf and then folded it back ,using a piercing tool I did around the edges .

I mounted onto dark green card to provide some contrast.

I love the sketch from Card and a Half and really enjoyed putting all the elements together .I noticed Rachael from the design team didn't put her sentiment as the main feature of the card so I hope my entry will be OK.
