Today’s card is another look at the Thoughtful Branches stamp set-it is only available today and tomorrow! My last share was a sympathy card using this set, so I thought ,why not do one more, a Thoughtful Branches for Christmas card!
I started by stamping the tree images from Thoughtful Branches right onto the This Christmas Specialty DSP in Early Expresso and Garden Green inks. The ground image is also stamped in Early Expresso. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Pines (available on September 1st, Yippee) in Cherry Cobbler ink directly onto the DSP. I went back to Thoughtful Branches for my birds, stamped them in Cherry Cobbler onto Very Vanilla and die cut them with the Beautiful Branches Thinlets Dies (Bundle and SAVE 10%)
Gold Foil stars were then die cut with my Mini Treat Bag Thinlets and added with a very tiny piece of Dimensionals. The birds also took a small piece of dimensional and were then popped onto the panel. The lower left corner of the card front looked too bare, so I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlets (available Sept. 1st, YAY) and die cut 3 boughs from some Garden Green stock, then trimmed down some. They are glued with a small amount of Liquid Glue, then I added some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine to a Classy Designer Button and tied a bow. It is attached with a couple of glue dots. Garden Green is my card base, followed by a panel of This Christmas DSP. The art panel is framed in Basic Black card stock and popped onto the bottom layers with Dimensionals.
Can you tell I really like this tree? My sentiment is another one from the Christmas Pines set. So, do you agree you need this set? I am happy with my Thoughtful Branches for Christmas card, and if you want to see even more ideas using this set, check out this Pinterest Board for many more images of this wonderful set, and don’t delay on ordering it!
