Wow, thanks so much for the response on my leaf layout in my last post. A lot of people have asked how I did it. Really, it took less than an hour to do, once I had the leaves cut out.
I used several sheets of the Pink Paislee Amber Road papers and cut them to 6x12 so I could fit them into my Silhouette die cutting machine. I found a leaf pattern online and cut out about 75 leaves of 3 different sizes. (If you have leaf punches or Sizzix dies, you could use those instead.) What is nice about the double sided paper is after you have your leaf cut out, you can flip it over and have a different pattern on the other side. The papers I used were Pink Paislee Amber Road - Hayride, Pink Paislee Amber Road - Bonfire, Pink Paislee Amber Road - Apple Cider and what I had left of the Autumn Blossom, which I cut to 10x10 and used over the base of the Pink Paislee Amber Road Diecut Sheet - Fall Festival.
Once I had all my leaves cut out, I just dabbed each with a dot of glue and went to town, layering them until I thought they looked right. The next step, I went to my sewing machine and just stitched a random pattern on top of the leaves.
Since I used double sided paper, I had 8 different patterns to choose from. I tried to not make the same patterns touch. That was it.
This is the leaf pattern that I used. I found it online, redrew it and altered it a bit.

I had some extras leaves left over, so I made 2 cards. I think they look so elegant with that Pink Paislee Amber Road paper.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Sunday!!
