Hey friends! I can’t believe it’s time for Christmas and holiday cards already, but sure enough it is! They are truly my favorite cards to make and send. And all the stamp companies out there I think make their very best sets for the holidays.
The awesome people at Stampin’ Up! sent me one of their sets and new die sets to play with, so I made a super easy-to-make and send Christmas card. I used the adorable Christmas Pines stamp set for the sentiment and branches and then used the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies for the circle. I love the detail that the stitching gives on these basic shapes. They just add a bit of extra specialness!
I added some sequins and inked around the edges for a bit of added detail and warmth. Links to every product I used are down below!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back to making videos as soon as the semester is over. Yay!
Hey there! I’m so happy to say that I’m back home from a summer away and back in my beautiful craft space. I haven’t been able to craft very much these last two months because of my internship, but I’m so glad to be back in my happy place now. I had an awesome summer, don’t get me wrong. But there’s nothing like getting back into your favorite hobby that just makes you feel…centered. Pretty deep for a Friday, I know.
So let’s get into today’s card! The awesome people at Stampin’ Up! sent me the adorable Thoughtful Branches bundle to play with and I had so much fun using it. Botanical sets are my favorite to use, so this one is going to get a lot of love from me in the future. It’s super versatile and the coordinating dies open up the options even more. Here’s what I created:
I made a subtle background pattern using two of the leaf stamps in the set and then stamped and die cut the tree trunk and leaves to add on top. I also added a little blue bird to the top of the tree (you get two birds in this set!). I finished off the stamping with one of the sentiments in the set and then added some buttons and a little patterned paper flag that matched my color palette!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and be sure to check out the Thoughtful Branches bundle while it lasts – the deal ends August 31st! All supplies I used are listed below!
