Did you get your Thoughtful Branches and Beautiful Branches Thinlit Dies yet?
They are only available until August 31 or while supplies last. The order number is 144328 $66.50.
Thoughtful Branches Photopolymer Bundle

I wanted to create a summer / fall card and this is what I designed.

The leaves and greeting were stamped on Vellum card stock and the tree image is stamped on the inside of the card.

When the card is closed it looks like a summer card and opened up it looks more fall. 

I used the Layering Squares Framelits to make window. I love that these framelits come with coordinating scallop shapes.  You can see how the Dapper Denim scallop card stock frames the window of the card.

I used the In-Color 2016-2018 In-Coloe Designer Series Paper Stack on the card with corrdinating Dapper Denim ribbon.

If you're a new stamper and buy the 2016-2018 in-color ink, paper, designer series paper and ribbon,  you can easily make gorgeous coordinating cards.

I would love to help you with your order if you live in Canada.
