Hello friends and happy summet! I hope you are enjoying some extra sunshine, ice cream (or margaritas - no judgement here) and maybe a little vacation time! Today I am on the Joy Clair Designs blog sharing a card that I created using the My Succulents digital stamp set. To be honest, I did not inherit my mother's green thumb and I don't even attempt to keep cacti alive, so paper succulents are perfect for me! : )
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I cut a piece 4 1/4" x 3" piece of earth colored patterned paper and adhere it to the bottom of the card front. I cut a 4 1/4" x 3" piece of white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with a scalloped oval die to give it that rounded edge. I stamped the sentiment "Grateful for You" in Memento Tuxedo black ink on the lower portion of the white cardstock. This sentiment is from the Fall Greetings stamp set. I printed out a variety of the succulents from the My Succulents digital stamp set onto 80 lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut the images out. I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
