Pretty in Pink

Hi Stampers,

Here is the final card that makes up my Thoughtful Branches Gift set:


Like the other cards in the set, the "swish" from Work of Art is stamped in Soft Sky ink and the greeting is stamped in Early Espresso.  The little birdie perched on "thank you" is stamped in Blushing Bride.  The trees are a group of three stamped twice in Soft Suede.  The leaves on the trees are all stamped once in Blushing Bride, then the middle three tree tops are stamped again in Flirty Flamingo.  It doesn't show in the photo, but the last step to make this card awesome is to stamp three of the tree tops in Versamark and sprinkle with my favorite Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I was very sad when that embossing powder was retired - luckily, it lasts a long, long time!

Here is the box that holds the card set:


"For you" is embossed in Copper.  The box was made from Tip Top Taupe cardstock using the Gift Bag Punch Board .  The finished dimensions of the box are 4" x 2" x 2 3/4" tall.  The sides are decorated with separately cut pieces of Tip Top Taupe embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  The box wrap is made from two pieces of Soft Sky cardstock cut at 8 1/4" x 2" joined at the bottom of the box and punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  A gold binder clip provides the closure.


Thanks for stopping by to look at these projects today!
