Thoughtful Branches Flower Easel Card For You

Hello!  Hope your day is going well!  I have yet another Thoughtful Branches project to share with you today!  This one is a bright and happy easel card, which combines images from Thoughtful Branches and the Jar of Love stamp set:

The card base is Peekaboo Peach, and the stamped images are on Whisper White card stock, which is in turn layered on Flirty Flamingo card stock.  There's a bit of Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon tied in a bow around the card.  You can see a bit of texture on the bottom of the Peekaboo Peach, and that is from the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I stamped the jar in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, with the water stamped in Soft Sky.  Stems and leaves are stamped in Old Olive, and the blooms are stamped in Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, and Sweet Sugarplum.  I added Fine Tip Glue over the jar to give it more of the look and feel of glass.

Here's the card folded into an easel:

The greeting and Flirty Flamingo scalloped circle were cropped with the Layering Circles Framelits.

I decided to use my Envelope Punch Board to create an envelope out of the 2016-18 In Color Envelope Paper to go with my card, and it was nice to be able to adjust the size of the envelope to accommodate the side bow more perfectly:

What do you think?  Hope you like this project!  If you haven't gotten your Thoughtful Branches Bundle yet, hurry on over to my store to buy it -- it's only available until August 31st . . . or while supplies last!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
