With all that's been going on around here, which included hospital visits for my husband (he's fine now) and a friend (she's ok, too) my posts had to be put on hold, even though I still did get some stamping done.  (This card is one of them.)

First I ran the white panel through the Big Shot with an autumn embossing folder to give it some texture.  (Click on card to get a better view.)  Then I used the leaf die to cut the leaf outline, even though it looks like the leaf is on top here.  To line up the veins with the leaf outline, I placed the white panel on the gold cs, placed the inset in the opening and  taped it down with post-it tape.  After carefully removing the white panel, I ran the card through the Big Shot.  Then I sponged the veins to make them stand out.

While the white panel was still unattached, I added the greeting and mounted it on the gold card front.  The final touch was the tiny pearl at the base of the leaf.

The leaf die with its inset for the veins was a set I purchased at Hobby Lobby a year or two ago.  The greeting was done with a die and stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  The $5 stamp set included 9 coordinated sayings.  The "Blessed" die was also $5 sold separately.

Very clever card! I love the leaf aperture and the pearl is a great added touch!
