ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello stampers and welcome to the ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop. 

Today we are sharing a card showcasing brand new products from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. I made this card recently for our team card swap. 

I love the Beauty of Friendship bundle and chose to create this card with a single tree branch for a more dramatic look after being inspired by cards on pinterest. I knew I also wanted to showcase all the new in colors. 

I began with a piece of basic white cardstock that I coloured with my blending brushes in pale papaya, polished pink and soft succulent.  

I then cut and embossed the panel to add to my Soft Succulent base. I die cut the tree in both soft succulent and evening evergreen and slightly offset them to create a shadow effect. The sweet birds were die cut in bumblebee.

I scattered some basic rhinestones to complete the card.
