STB Foliage

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Foliage". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

Though a card with autumnal leaves would be most expected this time of year, I was inspired to use these three leafy tags that I've been hoarding saving for just the right occasion. I paired it with some coordinating paper, both from Carta Bella. The only thing stamped was the sentiment. Easy peasy, though it took me two evenings as I craft at a snail's pace. Also I sometimes fall asleep on the couch :)

Stamp Sets: Beautiful Lady (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Mossy Meadow (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Welcome Home (Carta Bella)
Ink Pads: Field Greens (Hero Arts)
Tools: Big Shot, Pierced Rectangle Dies (My Favorite Things)
Accessories: Welcome Home Ephemera (Carta Bella), Linen Thread (Stampin' Up)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

Awww, those tags are so cute!! Glad you could finally use them! The pattern papers both match the tags so perfectly, both in concept and color - I thought you had stamped them!! Awesome card, Sandy!

These came in perfect for your challenge! So very glad you found the perfect time to use them! The papers are fabulous too! The band looks like washi tape. Hope you are having a good day!
