Stamp Review Crew - Thoughtful Branches!

Welcome to this special Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop...featuring the Thoughtful Branches Bundle! 


Yes, Thoughtful Branches is an EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TIME BUNDLE...available as a pre-order to Stampin' Up! demonstrators until July 31st...and then to everyone August 2nd through 31st. 

The Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set has AMAZING sentiments...and I just LOVE the fonts used!  So...I wanted to do a card that highlighted that...and the die cuts.  I cut the tree top in both Whisper White and Basic Black and layered them...with just a hint of the white peeking out...and then "framed" the tree in a fun, Gold Foil element cut using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  I then embossed the sentiment on a bit of Tangerine Tango Cardstock...added a few embellishments...and popped it all up on the card base.  I paired the finished card with a Crumb Cake envelope...which I gold embossed with a leaf image from the Thoughtful Branches Stamp set.
