Peaceful Leaves - Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature

 Good morning!  We are starting our first full 5 day week of school and my boys were dragging this morning.  I think the honeymoon phase is over and now it's back to the grind!  The gray weather isn't helping but the boys are ever hopeful for a day off due to Hurricane Florence.  Kids!

  My card today is one we made at my July stamp club.  I designed a clean and simple (CAS) card to show off the Stamp-a-ratus and how you can move the plates to perfectly line up images with each other.

  The card base is Very Vanilla thick.  Then we tore the edges off of a piece of Gray Granite.

  The smaller leaves are stamped in Mint Macaron.  The center leaf and sentiment are both stamped in Gray Granite.  Using the stamp-a-ratus made it really easy to make sure the leaves and the sentiment were perfectly aligned.  And if you are making multiples it's a lifesaver.

  The final details of this card are the Very Vanilla baker's twine and the single basic adhesive-backed sequin.  CAS designs generally have very little to no embellishments so less is more for sure.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
