9 Martha Stewart Branch punched Tree Card

Hello friends. I posted this card and brief instructions over at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot, if you want to go take a look. I remember last year when everyone was clamoring for the Martha Stewart branch punch!! It is a great punch and can be used for a few branches or a whole bunch like this tree, or arranged in a circle for a wreath! It was definitely worth the money.

Background is Core'dinations Whitewash embossed with the Cuttlebug textile folder. Coredinations Whitewash paper is so nice!!

These branches are super fragile though, so I made a box instead of an envelobox. That way it doesn't have to be slid into anything.

(click on the tree pic above to enlarge it and see the sparkle from spraying branches with Glimmer Mist)
