Christmas in July with Thoughtful Branches

I know it is only July, but I just couldn't help but make an early Christmas project with the Thoughtful Branches stamp set - this set is so versatile!


I used Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut a mask from paper and laid over my Whisper White cardstock, then stamped the small trees multiple times using Soft Sky then sponged the oval to give a misty, foggy feel.  Then I removed the mask and stamped the larger tree and foliage in VersaMark and Smoky Slate and used Heat & Stick Powder to heat emboss Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter

The Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder finished of the design perfectly, the sentiment is from Flurry Of Wishes


I am also entering this project into SIP challenge 56
