August Card Club...New Leaf...

Hello stamping friends, for the next few days, I'm going to be sharing some cards I've made using the new August Card Club Bonus set that Card Clubbers can purchase at a discounted rate with a qualified purchase.  During my card club event in August, you will have the opportunity to play with this set and see how versatile it is.  So today, I'm sharing my first few cards...
This was my first card created using the set.  It was really a hodge-podge of embellishments and I even did some braiding techniques that I used to do when I was a teenager (remember those floss bracelets?)  The button I wove into the twine is a backwards shell button.  I Loved the color and the texture of the back side! 
Here you can see the glossy paper I used.  I also incorporated some of my favorite rub-n-buff and spackling tape to add those sparkly circles...YUM! 
I stamped the leaves using white ink then sponged fall colors over that to create the background. 
I LOVE this simple layout and the little pop of pattened paper! 
I wanted to create a flower-like effect with the leaves...and added some clear ultrafine glitter too...It's real SPARKLY! 
The Kraft background was stamped with Versamark using one of my new background favorites! 
Adding a little punched edge to the bottom border just give it the finishing touch!!!

Hope you enjoyed the peek at the August Card Club Set:  Happy Leaf!  Check out the other creations on the Savvy Projects Blog too...You'll really be inspired!!!  Kerry
