Handmade card of the week: Leaf card

Some of the best creative inspiration comes from nature, and this leaf card is no exception...



Why we love it:
  • This would be a really simple card to create - simply trace a real leaf or find a template online. 
  • Using natural kraft card gives this card a really organic feel. 
  • Cutting out your message and adding a contrasting ribbon behind it is a nice way of adding colour. You could also stencil, stamp and hand-write a message (in colour) on your card. 
  • Using string to attach the card to the present also has a lovely natural feel. 
  • You could experiment with different sized and shaped leaves. Smaller leaves would also make great little gift tags. 

What type of leaf would you use for a card? 
We'd love your thoughts - please comment below...
