SSS Dream Big, Tropical Leaf Bunch

Happy Wednesday!  Todays' card features the Tropical Leaf Bunch die from the Dream Big release.

I thought it would be fun to create a bit of a 'gilded' card using this die.

The die was cut from a panel of cream cardstock, I added a piece of printer paper to the back that was covered with adhesive, and then inlaid a die cut that was cut from Matte Gold cardstock.

The Tropical Leaf Bunch was then cut from three shades of green cardstock.  

I used the lightest color as the base, and then cut portions of the leaves from the medium and dark green, adhering them to the light green piece.

This entire piece was then adhered slightly offset over top of my Matte Gold die cut. 

I think that bit of gold peeking through gives it such a sophisticated look.

The sentiment is from the new XL Student Greetings set and was embossed in gold.

To finish things off, I added a strip of that Matte Gold cardstock, towards the bottom of my card base, and then popped the die cut/stamped panel over top with foam adhesive.

I went with traditional colors, but I think this would look so pretty with some non traditional pinks or blue/teals too.
