Friday Die Day

Hello friends
It's Friday Die Day and I'm resisting Christmas and going with an
Autumnal theme.  I am featuring Leaves -
this is a die set from the Woodland Collection.
Approximate Sizes:

 Leaf 1: 1.55 x 3.00 inches
Insert A: 1.20 x 2.00 inches
Insert B: 1.20 x 2.15 inches
Insert C: 1.20 x 2.15 inches
Leaf 2: 1.50 x 2.75 inches
Insert A: 1.20 x 2.15 inches
Insert B: 1.20 x 2.20 inches
Insert C: 1.20 x 2.20 inches
You can create such a variety with the two different outer shape
dies and the three different inserts for each.
This is how they look cut/embossed.

Some close up photos to see the beautiful embossed patterns.

I chose to make a gift bag and also added die cuts from Stylized Flowers
and Pinecones.
My gift bag with patterned paper, lace ribbon
and three leaves added.

And then all the other bits and bobs attached.
Really simple to do.

And perhaps neutral enough for a man's gift?

Take care friends.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, I'm really hoping to
finish the Christmas shopping and perhaps think about making the
Christmas cake...always last minute that one!
