This is my first creation with the “Seasonal Branches” Bundle. What I really liked about this “bundle” was the different possibilities with the branches, leaves, flowers and berries. I’m still waiting on another stamp order that contains the NEW “In Color” ink pads. I had ordered all the other ink pads, but for some reason forgot to order the NEW “In Color” pads! The only NEW color I incorporated into this card was “Pecan Pie“. I’m liking this “NEW Core Color” as it really is a pretty shade of brown.

The folded card base is “Balmy Blue“. Since the “Stitched Rectangle” Dies are now retired, I used the Scalloped Rectangle die from the “Scalloped Contours” Dies and trimmed off the scalloped edges. Then I added a layer of “Parakeet Party” card stock. The brown “Pecan Pie” layer was cut with the “Deckled Ractangles” Dies. After cutting the “Pecan Pie” layer, I crunched it up into a ball several times to give this layer a more “earthy” feel.

Before stamping the tree branch and leaves on my focal panel, I used a blending brush to add some “Balmy Blue” ink to the background. The branch and leaves followed with coloring in the leaves with “Blends”. The bird was stamped, die cut and colored with “Blends” before adhering with dimensionals. The greeting was stamped with “Balmy Blue” ink. To finish this card, I added a double bow made from “Linen Thread”. Overall, I’m liking this “Seasonal Branches Bundle” and working on another card to share in a few days!
