Woodware "Leaf Quartet" Congratulations Card

GCSE exam results are just around the corner and I know a certain young man will have done fantastically well, so I hope I've not jinxed the results by making this congratulations card. 

I've used one of the leaves from the Woodware "Leaf Quartet JGS342" clear stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Green Oasis" ink.  I stamped the leaf again on to a post-it note and then fussy cut it to create a mask and popped it over the original stamped image.

I used low tack tape to mask off the edges of the card, then used Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink through the Funky Fossil Designs "Burlap Texture Background Stencil.

Removing the leaf mask and the low tack tape, I then created a mount in a co-ordinating colour of card, before sticking it on to a card blank.

I used a sentiment from the Funky Fossil Designs "Stripped Back Sentiments" stamp set, with Versafine Clair "Green Oasis" ink for the "congratulations" word.

Finally, I added some dots of white Ranger "Enamel Accents" drifting from top left to bottom right of the card.
