Preview of Thoughtful Branches

Received my order with the new limited time stamp set and thinlits bundle. I couldn't wait to put some of the stamps to ink and this is what I came up with.

This is a new fold for me, shared by my friend, Bonnie. I think it is really nice! Want to see more? Here is the inside of the card:

Now for the specifics:

The base, which is also the back of the card is Watermelon Wonder, cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". (this is also one quarter of an 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock). The mat for the back piece is Pink Pirouette, cut at 5 1/4" x 4".

Now for the "cover". Cut 5 3/4" x 2 3/4" from Flirty Flamingo (love the new In Colors!) and score at 5 1/4". Give this a sharp crease using your bone folder. Add adhesive to the 1/4" flap and add it to the back of the top of the mat, lining up the bottom and left side edges. Now attach the mat to the Watermelon Wonder piece. Your card fold is now completed.

For the image, stamp the triple tree trucks with Soft Suede to a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of Pink Pirouette. With Flirty Flamingo, stamp the small set of dots over the two outside trunks, and with Watermelon Wonder over the middle trunk. I used Cucumber Crush for the grass. Add this to a 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" Flirty Flamingo piece, then add this to a 3" x 4" Watermelon Wonder mat.

Stamp your sentiment to the base mat. Add adhesive to the left side of the image piece and attach it to the cover flap, positioning  it so that the sentiment doesn't show. And that is it! :)

Curious about the stamp set that I used??? Watch for it on August 2! It will only be available "while supplies last", so don't put off ordering it! You will be able to purchase the stamp set, thinlits, or as a bundle (which saves you money!) Check it out:

Enjoy and have a great day!
