I recently shared this card in a previous video introducing the Thoughtful Branches Limited Bundle, but now I have a video showing you how it’s done! This is my first video! It took me a while to get one done because I had to learn how to edit and not drag on too long. My biggest obstacle was the lighting, the best light is natural light and I it was hard for me to schedule time when the light was good.
Well here’s a list of all products I used and and all the dimensions/cutting sizes to make this card.
- Old Olive cut at 5-1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4-1/4
- Basic Black cut at 5-1/4 x 4
- Whisper White (2 pieces) cut at 5 x 3-3/4
- Whisper White cut at 3×3 for Tree Top
- Early Espresso cut at 3×3 for Tree Branches
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.
