You're in my Thoughts

Hi Stampers,

Today I have another beautiful card made from the Thoughtful Branches bundle to show you.  I totally in love with this set, it's so easy to create cards that are simple, yet elegant with these stamps and die-cuts.

Here's the recipe for this card:

Begin with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (half sheet) piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  Score the long side at 4 1/4" to form an A2 card.  Stamp the front randomly with leaves from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set using Versamark ink to create a watermark background.  Next add 3 strips of  Affectionately Yours  Designer Washi Tape.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the greeting using Versamark and emboss with Copper Embossing Powder.  Don't forget to use your Embossing Buddy before you stamp to keep any powder from sticking where you don't want it!  Die-cut the greeting using the Lots of Labels Framelits.

On another scrap of Whisper White, stamp the hydrangea flower in Blushing Bride.  Die-cut this flower, plus one more out of Blushing Bride cardstock and the stem with leaves using Mint Macaron. Adhere the two flowers and leaves to the card front as shown.  Wrap a 36" length of Copper Metallic Thread around your hand a few times; slip it off and twist once in the middle.  Adhere to the lower right corner of the card with a glue dot.  Adhere the greeting over the top of the copper thread using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Add a few Basic Pearls to the flower.  That's all there is to it!  This card took about 15 minutes to make!

If you're loving the Thoughtful Branches bundle, remember it's only available until August 31 (or while supplies last)!  Click on the link below to order before they're gone.
