Peaceful Boughs for Customer Thank Yous

At this time of year, I like to send out customer thank you cards with orders that convey a holiday greeting as well as a thank you for the order. I have used the Beautiful Boughs Dies a lot over the course of the Holiday Catalogue, but I haven't used the coordinating stamp set, Peaceful Boughs a whole lot. I decided to use them today.

I was inspired, actually, by the palette of the Christmas decor and house design of one of the celebrities on Love It or List It Vancouver, Jillian Harris, who just so happens to live in my city of Kelowna. Her house has beautiful tones of creams, and peach and whites and her Christmas decor is the same, but adds gold as well. You can see the photo if you click on her name above!

Here's a closer look:

  • I started by taking sheets of Shimmery White cardstock and watercolouring them with Petal Pink ink and water. I then cut up each sheet into four        4 3/4" x 3 1/4" pieces. 
  • I used Versamark to stamp on the two largest pine boughs and the Season's Greetings sentiment. I then covered the images with Gold Stampin' Emboss powder and heat set the images. Most of them I left like this before adding the Snowflake Sequins and gluing to the card front.
  • On a few, I also embossed 2 pinecones in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and die cut them and the large and medium pine boughs from Whisper White cardstock.                                                                    
  • These I added to the card front using Glue Dots. Then a few Snowflake Sequins were added as well.
I hope my customers like these, and I hope you do too!
