Branch Out Thank You

Hi there! Hope things are going well in your corner of the world? We are still experiencing some cool weather, with a bit of snow here and there, it definitely feels like January! I love Winter though, so as long as the roads are clear or I don't have to go anywhere, well I'm happy with the season!!
Speaking of Winter, today's share uses the now retired Branch Out stamp set from SU!. I really enjoy this set and love how one can change the leaf colour with the seasons, or even add a few snowflakes to the background.
I used Bordering Blue, Kraft Designer Paper (this was a SU! Hostess Set last season) & Whisper White. Serene Snowflakes stamps were used to randomly stamp a background on the B. Blue cardstock; the ink pad was then swiped along the edges to give the card some depth.
I inked up the tree with Chocolate Chip craft ink and hit with the embossing gun to dry it. The snowflakes were stamped in Whisper White craft and snow was drifted finely in along the bottom of the tree and swiped along the edges of the Kraft cardstock. "Just For You" from Only Ovals was stamped on W. White and matted with a Bordering Blue scalloped oval punch.
Thanks for dropping by!!!
