Have you seen the newest size of cards in card making? It's called a slimline card. Your paper is cut 7" x 8 1/2" and scored at the 3" line. This is the first one I've every made.
This size card does fit into a business sized envelope.
If you look closely, you will see that the smaller leaves are cut out and embossed. If you look even closer, you'll see that the green leaf has orange ink on it. I put the die into the cajun craze ink then onto the mint macaron paper. I ran it through my die cutting machine and the leaf came out colored. The other leaves have been colored with sponges or daubers.
The stamp set used here is Gathered Together. The dies are called, Gathered Leaves.
