Christmas Tree Wreath Ornament Video Tutorial

So for today’s post I have a short video tutorial on how to make this little Christmas Wreath. You can use it as a decoration for your tree or as decoration to hang on its own elsewhere. I love how I used the circles Thinlits for a totally different project than what is highlighted in the catalogue. So if you have some dies just experiment and see what you can come up with.

Thoughtful Branches Day 6 – Snowman Card

Today’s card was inspired by some leftover die cut pieces I had from my Autumnal thanks set of cards. I had the branches left over and then I had an ah-ha moment, can you guess what I thought…

That’s right… Snowman arms!

Here is the finished card all made with dies and punches apart from the clouds which were sponged with whisper white craft ink through a stencil made from the tree builder punch.

thoughtfulbranchessnowmanIsn’t he cute! As you can see the main parts of the snowman have been made using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit set, because that’s what I have in my stash but the circle punches or the Layering Circle Framelits would work just as well. The eyes and nose were punched from the Sprinkles punch and the hat I just hand cut myself.

Remember, tomorrow is the last day to order the Thoughtful Branches promotion, so if you want this set hit the shop now button and place your order before its too late!
