I cut out all but the smallest of the leaves, from three different shades of green cardstock. I adhered the lightest shade leaves to the medium shade ones, placing them slightly offset, to get the effect of a drop shadow. I cut the plant pot from woodgrain paper and the stand from a scrap of dark brown cardstock and added just a tiny bit of shading to the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I affixed the darkest green leaves flat, but left the edges slightly loose so I could curl them up a bit. I adhered most of my double leaves with one layer of foam tape, but popped a couple of them even higher on two levels. I creased all of the leaves down that center score line for additional dimension.
The background paper is an index page from an old, falling-apart plant book, matted on terracotta cardstock. If you look closely on the lower righthand side, you can see the name of this species, Monstera Deliciosa! I borrowed a sentiment from Hero Arts' Bookcase Peek-a-boo set and trimmed it into a little pennant. An Eyelet Outlet Mini Ladybug Brad adds just a tiny bit of whimsy and a fun pop of red.
