Bleached Green Apple

Here is another bleached card I made with "A Year of Leaves". I embossed the leaves in gold onto Pure Luxury Green Apple, the addition of bleach to the center turned the paper a beautiful sunflower yellow. I cut the paper into sections and matted them onto Ivory and a Good as Gold 4 1/4" square base. TIP: Dividing up a patterned paper into panels is a great way to add interest to your layout without covering up the print or makigna more ccomplicated layout than you have to! :) The greeting uses a large and small oval punch, popped up, and accented with adhesive nailheads. Ribbon is ivory gold lined organdy.

Have a terrific day, we have so much to be thankful for!


  1. Reallllllllllllllllly like the look; I have only bleached black paper...then recolored with twinks....will have to try some other paper colors as this is absolutely beautiful!

  2. Funny, after I tried the poinsettias on this card and saw the colour (which I fixed by repainting red) I tried sunflowers and then the exact same leaves (since I hadn't inked up my year of flowers set yet... shame on me). :)
    I love how you cut it up and let it be the focus of the card!! Beautiful!!

  3. This is such a pretty technique - must try it out on a few colours ;) Thanks for th ereminder of this technique!
