As soon as I saw the Thoughtful Branches bundle, I knew that I wanted to use it for my dad’s birthday card this year. His birthday is next week, so I’d better get this card in the mail soon!
Stamps: Thoughtful Branches, Birthday Fiesta
Ink: VersaMark, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Garden Green, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Other: Beautiful Branches Thinlets, Clear Embossing Powder
I wanted my tree to have extra depth, so I started out by using the tree top thinlet to make a hole in the So Saffron layer so the Garden Green base would show through. I cut it from the back, though, so it would be the opposite image of the one I put on top.
My next layer was the bare branches, because I knew some of them would show through.
I really like the stamped tree trunk, so I added that next.
I used Clear Embossing Powder on both the trunk and the leaves to make the tree even more vibrant.
