Thoughtful Branches

ThoughtfulBranchesWell tomorrow is the ‘official’ back to school for me.  Thursday and Friday is ‘report for all day meetings’ then Monday is students.  DANG…I could use another month off!

But I had a little time for stamping and oh…I do LOVE this new set and matching thinlits.  It is just SOOOO awesome.  I just love anything having to do with trees and this particular framelit is perfect!

This is also for the casology challenge this week for dream…I’m dreaming of a white Christmas!

I decided I wanted to go with a very simple look and to me nothings is as classy for Christmas as white, silver and red.

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, stamp ‘ground’ using Versamark and silver emboss, stamp greeting using Real Red
  • Silver/White diagonal stripe print (Neutrals dsp Paper Pack) – 5/8 x 5 1/2, add behind white panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 5 1/2, add to edge of Whisper White
  • Whisper White – cut our tree and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp bird using Real Red, cut out and add to tree
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to tree and ground to finish off

How cool is this!  I’m almost ready for Christmas now!  LOL!!!

Set(s): Thoughtful Branches, Star of Light
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Neutral dsp Paper Pack, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Real Red, Versamark
