Thoughtful Branches at Christmas

I am so ready to start making Christmas cards; its probably something to do with the weather, seeing as it has rained ALL DAY! I know it’s still only August, but really, I’m feeling rather Autumnal and almost Festive!

Christmas Card using Thoughtful Branches From Stampin' Up! UK

I have really enjoyed using the Thoughtful Branches Bundle, quite sad that it wont be available after the 31st August. There is still time for you to get your hands on it, but you better move quick. This card though, I am so excited about, I’ve been trying to get a ribbon of paper onto a card for ages, and I’ve finally done it!

The card uses a base of Garden Green, with a matt of This Christmas Designer Series Paper, and another layer of Very Vanilla. The main focal point of the card is the ‘For You’ sentiment, stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I’ve been reaching for this punch combination a lot recently, it’s the 1 1/4″ circle and the 1 3/8″ circle layered on top of one another, and its the perfect combination for a sentiment.

Christmas Card for you using Thoughtful Branches from Stampin' Up! UK

The paper ribbon is super simple to do with the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper – because its thin but strong, it curls really nicely. I created the loops of paper and stuck them together with glue dots before attaching the whole piece to the card with Fast Fuse. I really wanted to add a splash of Gold onto this card, so one of the leaves has a touch of Gold Wink of Stella, but that wasn’t quite enough, so I added some Gold splatter and a trio of Gold Enamel Shapes.

Before I go, I just want to remind you that if you order this fabulous bundle before the 31st August, I will send you a FREE card kit and Exclusive video tutorials in September!
