Cards with leaves

Tarjetas y Hojas

I really really really needed to share this cool idea with you my friends, I got it from Martha Steward Living Magazine ( I'm not a big fan of buying magazines...but my sewing machine that I bought a while ago came with a one year subscription).

No podia esperar a compartir esta idea con ustedes mis amigos, esta idea la obtuve en la revista Living  de Marta Steward (yo no soy fan de comprar revistas...pero hace un tiempo compre mi maquina de coser y vino con 12 meses de edicion de esta revista).

You will need some construction paper, greeting cards paper or anything else you want.

Necesitara catulina o cualquier tipo de papel que prefieras para la tarjeta.

You will also need a crafts knife and some dried leaves, which I took from my little C's collection.

 Tambien necesitaras una cortadora de manualidades y algunas hojas secas , que las tome de la coleccion de mi hija C.


You cut carefully the  facial features.

Corta las formas faciales de la hoja cuidadosamente.


I used tacky glue to paste them in the paper.To make the shape of the pumpkin leaf  you can use scissors.
And you will have beautiful Greeting cards!!! I love them.

Use pegamento tacky para poder pegarlas en el papel. Use tijeras para darle forma de calabaza a algunas de las hojas.
Y tendras unas hermosas tarjetas de la ocasion...Me encantan!!


I really enjoy working with leaves and flowers, you can make beautiful stuff using what mother nature has given us..

Me gusta mucho trabajar con hojas y flores, se puede hacer cosas muy hermosas usando lo que nos brinda nuestra madre naturaleza.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Que tengan un maravilloso fin de semana!!
