Ginkgo trees have a distinctive beauty, and the Ginkgo Branch Bundle was among my top favorites from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, available January 5, 2023.

Today’s card is CAS (clean and simple), and it was fun to simply stamp the ginkgo branch in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used a Blending Brush to add a light touch of background color with Balmy Blue Ink.

Ginkgo Branch CAS


After stamping, I used the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut the Basic White Cardstock, and the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut Balmy Blue Cardstock for a border.

Next, I glued the two layers to a Mossy Meadow card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4.


Prior to gluing, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive Ink. “With sympathy” is one of four sentiments from the Ginkgo Branch Stamp Set. Isn’t the font pretty?

The last step was highlighting the Ginkgo leaves with a Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blend, and my CAS card was complete.
