Bird Branch Trio

Published by at 9 04 pm under General Purpose Cards,Memory Box

This is a trio of note cards I made up quickly. I used a pretty new wood mount stamp called Bird Branchby Memory Box that I recently got from Stamper’s Dream. I think it is just so pretty, and today I used it in black as a silhouette, which is always a quick way to get some cards done. I have long loved silhouette type images. Here they are:


Again, I did all cards identical as I’m still in quick mode! There isn’t much to these, but I think this lovely Bird Branch image paired with SU’s Urban Garden DP produces a classy, but simple card!!! I used a grayish/silver May Arts velvet ribbon. Cardstock is White and SU’s Basic Gray andretired River Rock, and ink is Versa Fine Onyx Black. Image is cut and embossed with aLong Rectangle Nestability by Spellbinders and popped up on dimensionals.


That’s just a quick project for today. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve already, ready or not, and I am not!!! But that’s OK. It’s time already to forget all of our to-do lists and just enjoy the next few days, celebrating the birth of baby Jesus some 2,000 years ago. May you all have a wonderful Christmas!!!

    River Rock, black, and white has been my own personal obsessive color scheme for months! I bought a bunch of river rock when it was retired but I’m already panicking for when I run out many years down the road – LOL!!.

    That’s a beautiful stamps too – sigh, more money to spend…..

    Happy Holidays –

    These are beautiful and elegant! I love the colors and that gorgeous silhouette image. I’ve never yet found another green as soft and lovely as River Rock. It’s so pretty here with the black and silvery gray.
