Feather Leaf Frond

Hi there my crafty friends!  We are at the penultimate post now, but I think you will agree that this Feather Leaf Frond was worth the wait!  I just love the beautiful accent piece this leaf makes.  It looks amazing when used to create a background as I have done in the sample shown.  There are both a left and right facing leaf in the set so they are more versatile.  You can easily nip them down to make them smaller to accent your floral elements too if you desire.  It is a great all around finishing touch for any of your cards or projects.  Don't forget your comment, but please be back here at 3pm for the last post.  All for now. Sue x

At last I have reception. I suppose most of the UK is having really nasty storms at the moment and it doesn't help being in the middle of nowhere but I'm so happy to be able to comment on this gorgeous inspirational work of art. Whatever media you've used as a background it's just absolutely gorgeous with your fronds cut into the top layer. I can't get enough of your florals and flora dies every one just gives that beautiful finish we look for on our work, thank you xxx

Just love the fact that you do two Dies in a set to go both ways. Also showing that it isn’t just to compliment flowers it works in its own right as a. Lovely background. Thank you Sue.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Awe, there's that word "penultimate" again. Loving the Feather Leaf Fronds and how you die cut multiples to create your background and backed this layer with what I think is a Pixie Powdered background. I always appreciate that you design a left and right of a die design.

Hello Sue and all
Great foliage ! I am making a card at the moment with a background of the fern fronds like this but I love the full curved look of these leaves. Really like the glitter showing through too, fab card.
Can’t believe it is the last day already but probably a good thing, want so many of this release not to mention the lovely new embossing folders and stamps too
Hugs
