Did you see this single 'Al a Carte' stamp in the back of the Holiday Mini catalog? The pretty Leaves of a Tree was another of those 'must have's' for me. Here's what I did with it for my September Card Clubs:
I stamped it first on Vellum card stock using Black Stazon ink. Then I turned it over and use my SU markers to add color onto the back. This ensures no bleeding since ink stays wet a bit longer on vellum. And when you color on the back side of vellum with your markers the colored lines are much softer. I used More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers.
Next I turned it over again and added a bit of More Mustard ink with a sponge dauber. Again, my reasoning for this is to prevent the Mustard ink from blending all of the marker colors. The piece of vellum is adhered to a piece of Confetti Cream card stock and adhered to the Old Olive layer with Black brads. The vellum is not adhered with any other adhesive; just the brads and ribbon on the bottom.
See the adorable vintage tag tied around the Cherry Cobbler quilted ribbon? I stamped the little leaf from Lovely as a Tree on the tag using Cherry Cobbler ink. TIP: stamp both sides of this little tag and then it won't matter if the tag swirls and turns loose on your card. I cannot take credit for this idea - one of my smart customers told me this.
The greeting on the bottom is from Sincere Salutations which is probably my favorite 'go to' verse stamp set.
