Step 1 - Take a sheet of Kraft Card. Using your Sizzix Big Shot Machine, die-cut your chosen leaf element from the Tim Holtz 'Cut Out Leaves' die set.

Step 2 - Using a guillotine, cut a rectangle shape around your leaf appature and stamp your sentiment at the bottom using black stamping ink. Tie a tin piece of twine between the bottom of the leaf and the sentiment.

Step 3 - Distress the corners of this rectangle using Tim Holtz Distress ink - first in Antique Linen and then again more subtly in Walnut Stain. This will give an aged/burnt effect.

Step 4 - Fold an A4 sheet of cream card in half and cut to your preferred size using a guillotine. using gray stamping ink, stamp your choice of patterns in a gray distress ink (see picture).

Step 5 - Cut a rectangle of gold card roughly the same size. Run a pattern maker's wheel along the edges to create a stitched
effect. Using PVA glue, stick this at an offset angle to the front of your main card element. Finally add your Kraft card element from step 2 to the front of your card using Foam Tape. Again, offset this rectangle from the gold rectangle behind as shown in the picture.
