Poppystamps Meadow Leaf

Do you love Memory Box?  Did you know they are the parent company for Poppystamps? They've got big things planned this year and have just added a design team that I am blessed to be a member of.  I love die cuts so this put me in crafty heaven!   Today I'm posting on the Poppystamps blog with a fun die cut project - and I only used one die!  Amazing!
To make my card I cut several of the leaves and arranged them on a piece of scrap paper along with my sentiment to see how I wanted to lay them out.  Then I took my clean card stock for my finished card and stamped the sentiment.  Next  I added a glue dot on the inside of my die and then stuck it to my card stock so that it would would stay in place when I ran it through my die cut machine.  I removed the die cut, attached a new sticky dot and adhered the die to my card stock and ran it through my machine again and again until I got all the leaves cut.

For a simple finished card I adhered it to a colored card base.  
If you want to mix it up and add more color - just tape swatches of different colored paper behind the die cuts. 

This is such a fun and easy way to make a clean expensive looking card. I hope you will visit the Poppystamps blog for daily inspiration and creative ways to use your dies. 

Finished Size: 4.25 x 5.5"
Die: Meadow Leaf Poppystamps
Card stock: Poppystamps

i even liked the scratch card! Love the versatility of that die. I love how you showed how different it can look with the solid vs multi colored effect.
