Hi Leafy Branch Greeting Cards

Hi Leafy Branch Greeting Cards

Happy Thursday, friends! On today’s blog, I’d like to share with you the cards that, I created using the beautiful Leafy Branch Die by Pinkfresh Studio. I really like the way that this die is designed as, it really made it easy for me to die-cut a bunch of dainty leafy branches out of white card stock to create a card panel for one of the examples that you’ll see down below today! So…without further ado, please keep on reading this post ↓


To begin with, I started by trimming the edges of one of the patterned sheets from the Just a Little Lovely 6X6 Paper Pad as, I was going to use the pattern from this sheet as the card panel. Once, the edges were trimmed down, I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 top folding Kraft card base with double-sided tape and, I set it aside.


In the meantime, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Leafy Branch Die along with a piece of white card stock to create the leafy die-cutting as, well as the h and i from the Kelly Alpha Lower Cases Die Set also with a piece of white card stock to die-cut them 3X because, I wanted to layering them up to add dimension. Right after when, I was done with die-cutting the pieces, I adhered the backing of the leafy branch on the left side of the card with liquid glue. Then, I fastened a wooden button with a piece of Ivory Burlap String which, I finished off with a tied bow and, I adhered the backing of the button to the center of the leafy branch with strong adhesive as, you can see in the picture above. Lastly, I stacked the letters and, I clear heat embossed them with Clear Gloss Embossing Powder for a shiny look. To finish the card off, I adhered the clear heat embossed letters on the lower side of the card and I set it aside.


For this example, as, I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I used die-cutting pieces to create the card panel. So, to begin with, I started by running through the die-cutting machine the Leafy Branch Die to die-cut the branch 5X out of white card stock. Next, after all die-cutting branches were cut out of the white card stock, I adhered the backing of them to a Kraft card panel with liquid glue creating that way the card panel for the card. Then, when I had a good amount of coverage, I trimmed the edges of the card panel to H 5.0’’ X W 3 3/4’’ because, I didn’t like the Kraft on Kraft look. So, to change that, I added a little contrast between by adding a white card panel between the card base and the card panel. For this step, I ran through the die-cutting machine a white card panel along with the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles Die Set just because, I wanted to add a little extra detail to the edges of the card panel. Last but certainly not least, I stacked the card panels up by adhering their backing with double-sided tape.


At this point, I was sure that I wanted to die-cut the letters out of white card stock as the first example. But I didn’t like it so, instead I die-cut them out of the scrap piece of patterned patter that I had leftover. As, you can see in the picture above that step not only gave the card a pop of color but, also gave me some colored tiny heart which, I used as embellishments and… that was so cool as, those were unexpected. So, to concluded the final touches of this card, I wrapped around a few times a piece of Burlap String on the top side of the card panel and, I fastened a wooden button and a piece of Burlap String in the same way as I did in the previous example. Lastly, I also clear heat embossed the letters for a shiny look, and I adhered the backing of them right in the center of the card as you can see in the picture above.


Finally, to finish the cards off I adhered those die-cutting cute little heats here and there and, covered them all with Glossy Accent to give them a puffy shiny look as if they were puffy stickers. With that being said friends, that’s all I have for today, I hope you were inspired with the cards that; I had shared today.
