As many of you know, I’m a farm girl and drawn to almost anything nature inspired. Well, the brand new Birds & Branches bundle filled the bill for me. I’ve incorporated it into a fancy fold design to really show off as much of the bundle as possible.

Not only that, I’ve used three of the new 2020-2022 In-Colors, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade and Bumble Bee. Did you know you can order the 5 new ink pads, in a bundle, and save 10%. You can find the bundle, #154957, on page 144. If you need a catalog, be sure to contact me so that I can get one off to you.

The Birds & Branches set is a two-step, photopolymer set. That makes lining up layered images, quick and easy. The set also coordinates with the 16-piece Birds & More die set.

The bridge fold can fool you though. You might think it has too much dimension to fit in a standard envelope. But, no that’s not the case. And to make it even more special, the back panel is perfect for a sentiment or note.
