Thoughtful Branches – Crazy Crafters Blog Hop

CCBH Thoughtful BranchesHi and welcome! The Crazy Crafters Team has a very special blog hop for you today. We are showcasing the brand new BEAUTIFUL Thoughtful Branches bundle. When you see the gorgeous creations we have for you tonight, I know you’ll want to buy your own, but don’t hang about because it’s only available until August 31, and only while stocks last.







Even though there are 23 stamps and 9 dies in this bundle, I wanted to show you that you can make a gorgeous card with only one or two elements.

Thoughtful Branches-1


I used the tree die and cut it out of white vellum, and then used this as a stencil. I stamped two birds and die cut these and added the beautiful sentiment you can see on the card front.

Thoughtful Branches-2


For the inside, I stamped a complementary sentiment, cut two more birds and attached these to the vellum piece I used as a stencil (I love this – no waste!). I punched one of the tiny hearts using the Confetti Hearts Border punch and adhered this to one of the birds. Here’s a close-up.

Thoughtful Branches-3
