Branch Out in Regal Rose

Stampin up branching out
With crabapple trees in spectacular bloom around my neighborhood, I thought I could use a little artistic license by including Regal Rose on my Branch Out tree.  All colors for my design were part of the Kwerner Color Inspiration #51 (Chocolate, Mustard, Rose and White).  TIP:  By using plenty of white, the feel of this card remained fresh and spring-like.
  • I stamped the Branch Out tree in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White card stock.
  • I layered the "leaves" in Regal Rose
  • The birdhouse was stamped in More Mustard.  TIP:  I missed the branch I was headed for (apparently too confident at the time).  A Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip Marker saved the day by allowing me to connect it to the tree.
  • The top left corner was cropped with a Corner Rounder Punch.  TIP:  A little asymmetry can add a subtle splash to a basic card.
  • Layers of More Mustard and Regal Rose card stock were adhered to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base of Whisper White (scored at the top).  The bottom corners were shaped with a Corner Rounder Punch.
  • Before attaching the tree image, I wrapped luscious Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon around the card base.
  • Three More Mustard brads provide a sweet detail and pop of color.
  • Stampin up kwerner color inspiration 51 The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Serendipity.  I stamped it in both Chocolate Chip and More Mustard. 
  • The chocolate version was given a new "figure" using a Large Oval Punch.
  • The More Mustard image was snipped out and mounted on the chocolate version with Stampin' Dimensionals.  TIP:  Stampin' Dimensionals are easy to cut and customize to any shape.
  • The new Scallop Oval Punch (exclusively in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog–click to download) coordinates beautifully as a Regal Rose background mat for the sentiment.
  • Sweet Always Designer Series Paper was cut just a tad narrower than the envelope and tucked inside.  Click here for details on Stampin' Up!'s May Designer Paper Promotion
  • I flipped the envie over and cut to remove the excess around the flap. 
  • To create the pretty white edge, I carefully cut off about 1/4" of the top of the designer paper. 
  • I adhered the liner only at the top.  It will stay in place perfectly.
  • Using a Scor-Pal (, I added a crease on the DP for easy closure.
