Maple Leaf Card

Sympathy cards are always tough to make!  I like the quiet autumn colors of these papers.

The arrangement of the design elements is a common one using the rule of thirds.

Once the maple leaves are cut it goes together very quickly.

This particular maple leaf is from the Silhouette Store.  I did not want the veining, so I cut only the outside edge (from solid colored papers).   I created an inside offset and removed the stem from it and cut the offsets from patterned papers.
