Simply Succulents – Thanks

The Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#112) deadline is approaching and I decided to use my chosen line with the Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge (#256).

And this is the result:



The Sketch suggests a Circle / Semi Circle shape behind the focal image.  I chose to die-cut a piece of Vellum with the Lacy Succulent Panel (4¼” x 5½”) die from the Potted Succulents Dies.  The arcs of the Succulents are evocative of Semi-Circles.

The die-cut panel was laid over a (4¼” x 5½”) piece of Soft Succulent cardstock.

For the Cross Strip, I chose to use a piece (4¼” x 1¼”) of Smoky Slate cardstock.  The strip was dry-embossed with the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.

White Baker’s Twine was tied in a bow around the three adhered pieces. (Background, die-cut panel and cross strip).

The sentiment, Thanks, from the Simply Succulents stamp set was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink on to the Basic White focal image panel (1¾” x 3½”).  This panel was dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered to the right of as per the sketch using Dimensionals.

To create the focal image:

  • Succulents, I used Blending Brushes to blend Soft Succulent and Blushing Bride inks on to a scrap of Basic White cardstock.  The Succulent images were stamped on to the blended colored scrap with Evening Evergreen ink and then die-cut with the coordinating dies.
  • Pot, I stamped the Pot image on to a scrap of Basic White card stock, fussy cut and double folded (scored) it to create a slimmer profile.  The Pot was colored with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.

The Pot and the Succulents were arranged and adhered to the focal image panel.

I opted for a Basic White card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to complete the card.

I love how soft and pretty these colors are and they work so nicely with the Vellum.  I hope you like it too!

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda!
