I was asked to have a Christmas in July Stamp-A-Stack so that my stampers could start their Christmas Cards early in the year. With the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set available only during the month of August I figured I could use this one. I was inspired by a card from Shawn de Olivera’s at ShawnStamps.com.
I loved the layout and the use of the stamp set but I wanted to change it around a little so here’s my version that was used for the Stamp-A-Stack.
Instead of using Designer Series Paper I chose to stamp a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with one of the stamps from the Thoughtful Branches set and use that as my background. I changed the embossed piece and bird to Tempting Turquoise. Added Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread, then changed the greeting.
I hope you like my version of this card as much as I do. Tomorrow I will post the second card we made at our Christmas in July Stamp-A-Stack.
