Cole's birthday and Cyle's are both in April, and so Jennifer sometimes has their parties together. These cards were actually made a few years ago, but I just happened to take a picture of them all. Erin made the first one, then mine, and lastly Celeste's card.
The paper with scalloped edges I made by dry embossing the leather or alligator texture, then I rubbed it with distressing ink and a sponge, and then last I painted it with acrylic varnish, which gave it a leather look. I love that look. If I had used a tan or brown cardstock, it really would have looked like leather.
The leaves were cut out first, folded in half lengthwise, and then run through the crinkle roller at an angle. I also used distressing ink on them to accent the crinkles and edges.
