Die-cut Mini Masterpiece: Maple Leaves

I have two cards in the post today. I wanted to use this great Impression Obsession maple leaf die for a die-cut mini masterpiece. It's the perfect size and well, I just like maple leaves. The last masterboard that I made using oranges and yellows was already cut up into 2" squares to make regular mini masterpieces, but luckily, the maple leaf die fits perfectly into a 2" square.

The first card uses 3 leaves.

I continue to marvel at how great these mini masterpiece masterboards turn out using dies to cut them into shapes. I absolutely love this one.

Even cooler is what you have left when you cut this leaf out of a 2" square. Using the negative piece seemed perfect for a sympathy card.

I used copper Stickles on these that did not show well in the photograph, but it lends a little bit of beauty to the finished product.

These card designs are based on the Mini Masterpieces that we did in a class by Sally Penley. You can look at my Mini Masterpieces herehere, here, hereherehere, and hereSally is still teaching the Mini Masterpiece class, so if you are local, I highly recommend it. You will get so much from this class. You can access her website here to sign up for her classes or buy her beautiful artwork.
