Thoughtful Branches by Stampin' Up! is a limited time bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits) that is only available during August. Wow–I wish we could keep it longer! Talk about versatile! I have loved using both the stamp set and the framelits–sometimes alone and sometimes together.
For this quick and easy Christmas card–that is super fun to make!–I used just the Thoughtful Branches stamp set. I can tell you that you can get really creative making the tree. Stamp the trunk and branches. Then stamp the pine needles. Want your tree a little fuller? Stamp the pine needles again! Want to add some color variation? Stamp the pine needles again without re-inking the stamp. Then you can quit or keep going. Very fun! And each tree has its uniqueness, just like in nature:) We took the tree to the inside of the card as well for more stamping fun!
We made this card at my Southern Sweet Stampers team meeting this month as well as my stamp club and card classes. It was a hit each time! Fun…guaranteed:) So if you are looking for a FUN card to make this year for Christmas, this might be your ticket. The Designer Series Paper, This Christmas, comes in a big stack of 24 sheets for just $13. That is a great deal! I used several of the patterns on this card since I was prepping so many, and they all look good. I prepped 75 of these and still had plenty of DSP left over. So if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make this year, consider this, please! Fun to make AND affordable!
