Just one more using Thoughtful Branches!

OK, just one more from the exclusive bundle Thoughtful Branches and then I will move on to some fall projects.

My list keeps getting longer!

Todays card is a very similar card we made while I was in Chicago at Gathering For Greatness. This was designed by my very talented friend, Lisa Pretto. I thought this card was so simple but elegant and I wanted to share it with you today as well as the dimentions so you can recreate this card. Thoughtful Branches, Thoughtful Branches Bundle, Thank You card, dimentionals, bird, trees, solid bakers twine, night of navy bakers twine,


*The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 heavy white cardstock, a layer of 3 3/4 x 5 white cardstock ran through the big shot using Petal Burst textured impressions embossing folder was added. 

*I cut out a tree from white cardstock using Thoughtful Branches framelit. To release the tree from the framelit, I used the handy little die brush and it pops right out! 


*I cut a white piece of cardstock 2 x 3 and wrapped some night of navy solid baker’s twine around this piece four times and tied a knot. I then carefully added dimentionals behind my tree and added it to my white piece which was also popped up on dimentionals to add depth to my card. 

*With my night of navy ink, I stamped a bird on white cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating framelit and added it to my tree with a glue dot. 

*Stamped my sentiment with real red ink on a piece of white cardstock measuring 3/4 x 2 1/4 and cut a banner on the end. And, that is it!

See you next time!
