Thoughtful Branches Leaves Only!

Hi Everyone. Sorry to say I don't have a new video again this week. I'm going to try to have one for you next week. I have lots of you asking. I was asked to fill-in full-time at our local University for 8 weeks as one of their girls had knee replacement surgery and since this is my old job from over 10 years ago, it's like riding a bicycle. Plus on top of that I do some bookkeeping part-time for another business and my son's new business. I'm a tad bit swamped right now!

So I'm using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies for today's card. I can't seem to put this bundle aside! Thank goodness Stampin' Up! seems to have stocked this set well since it's as supplies last and they have not run out yet. Order your bundle today though before it does run out.

So for my card today I wanted to use leaves only and I love how the Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Emerald Envy look paired together. And did you notice the Petal Burst Embossing Folder that I used on the white cardstock layer?

I even added two leaves layered at the top and topped off with a bow made with 3 pieces of the Burlap Ribbon that I cut apart:

Card Supplies:

  1. The fall colored leaves in the oval make a very pretty card. The burlap ribbon strings and the EF really add texture to it as well. Have a great Sunday.
