Thoughtful Branches Meets "This Christmas" DSP

I really didn't think I could get behind this "Christmas in July" thing until I got the Thoughtful Branches Bundle and saw the pine tree.  Hooked!  Now I've made my first Christmas card and I'm so happy with it!

The DSP that I used as a background is from This Christmas.  It is different than the other Designer Series papers in that it is thinner/lighter weight.  But because of that you get twice as many sheets!  Love that!

I stamped the pine tree in Soft Suede and Garden Green.  Then I took the other triple pine tree stamp from the set and stamped it off twice before putting it on my Very Vanilla cardstock.  Then I cropped it out with my new Layering Ovals Framelits and layered it on a Cherry Cobbler scalloped piece.

I don't know if you can tell in the photo, but there is a very faint sparkle in our new Burlap Ribbon.  With that in mind I twisted some Gold Thread behind the tree piece and secured everything with Dimensionals.  I added a tiny bit of sparkle in the tree as well with Mercury Glass Stickles (not Stampin' Up!)

  • Garden Green base
  • Very Vanilla
  • This Christmas, green print
  • This Christmas, red print

I hope you've enjoyed my week of Thoughtful Branches cards.  There are so many things you can do with this set ~ I've barely scratched the surface.  It will be for sale on August 2 - next Tuesday.  You can buy the stamp set and thinlits separately or save 10% by purchasing the bundle.  I will have all three options on my Product Line below.

Have a great weekend and have fun stamping!
