Potted Succulents – Hello

Just one more for today.  Please indulge me.

Working with Freshly Made Sketches (#574) and the Colors suggested by both Color Hues (#58) and Sunday Stamps (#303) and a layered element as directed by TGIF (#409).

Here is the result:



  • Case Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Tahitian Tide cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5½” x 4¼”) Basic Black cardstock.
  • Diagonal Strips: Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide cardstock scraps.
    • 1st: Parakeet Party.  The word, hello, from the Biggest Wish stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder.
    • 2nd: Tahitian Tide.
    • 3rd: Parakeet Party covered with the Cross Dash patterned piece of Washi Tape from the retired Floral Boutique Washi Tape Collection.
    • 4th: Tahitian Tide covered with the Floral patterned piece of Washi Tape from the same set.
    • 5th: Parakeet Party covered with the Lines patterned piece of Washi Tape from the same set.
  • Focal Image – Succulent Pot: Tahitian Tide, Parakeet party and Granny Apple Green cardstock scraps.
    • The Plant Pot (Tahitian Tide) was die-cut with the Planter Pot die from the Potted Succulents Dies set and then dry-embossed with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder.
    • The Spiky Succulent (Parakeet Party) was die-cut with one of the Plant dies from the same set.
    • The Bubble Succulents (Granny Apple Green) were also die-cut with another of the Plant dies from the same set.

All Strips were adhered to resemble the sketch.  The Plant Pot and Succulents were layered with the Pot popped up with Dimensionals.

I love a bright lime green and a turquoise blue together.  They are set off nicely with the black for a striking card suitable for anyone when you need to say hello.
