Cut Tranquil Tide card stock 4.25 x 11, score at 5.5 and fold to create and A2 top fold card base

Cut Tranquil Tide card stock 4 x 5.25, Emboss the tripple leaf from Nature's Roots Framelits. To get the leaf in each corner only run the piece through part way then turn 180* to do the other corner. You don't want to run it all the way through or it will flatten the embossing you already made.

Once embossed use a sponge dauber and Tranquil Tide ink to ink the edges all around then attach to card front with Snail adhesive

Embossing Mat sandwich:
1. Clear cutting Plate
2. Die with cutting edge facing up
3. Card stock
4. Thin Blue Mat
5. White embossing plate
( I placed the die on my card stock where I wanted it and held it in place with washi tape then just turned it over to run it through the Big Shot)

Stamp the tripple leaf 4 times with Tranquil Tide ink on a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock for a lovely tone on tone look.

Cut each of those out using the triple leaf framelit in the Nature's Roots framelits.

Use the largest circle in layering circles framelits to cut out a circle from Whisper White card stock.

Use Stampin' Sponges to color the back ground. Start with the lightest color first, Pineapple Punch and with a circular motion color a little heavier in the center and then lightly all over. Next, with Grapefruit Grove, again with a circular motion add color to the sides and over the top of the circle. Lastly use Berry Burst and sponge color over the top and blend it in with the other colors.

A circular motion works best, if you dob it on it wont blend as well.

Once the background is to your liking stamp the trees from Rooted In Nature using Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. Stamp the sentiment of your choice from Itty Bitty Greetings also with Momento.

Lay the circle on the card front to see how you want to position the leaf cutouts. Once you know where you want them attach them with Snail.

Once the leaf clusters are attached attach the art circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Cut a 4 x 5.25 piece of Whisper White and attach to the inside of the card with Snail Adhesive.
