Hi, Jamie here today! I have a hip friendship, and encouragement Be a Cactus Card. Inspired by the southwestern vibe, this card was fun to make.
Cactus Card Background
Die-cut white cardstock and decorative paper using the largest rectangle die from the set. Using a paper trimmer, cut just a bit of the top left corner off and about half of the bottom right corner off. Using the E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser, adhere the cut white cardstock panel to the decorative paper panel and set it aside.
Making The Focal Elements
Stamp the cactus images on white cardstock, and colored pencil them before die-cutting. Apply Sunflower Liquid Pearls to the dots on the tall cactus vase. I squirted the Liquid Pearls on my glass mat and dipped a small stylus to dot them on the vase.
Die-cut white cardstock using the second to the smallest oval and apply green and blue inks using blender brushes.
Putting It All Together
Apply E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser on the back of the tall cactus and adhere to the upper left side of the inked oval. Next, place 3D Foam Circles White Mix behind the other cactus and mounted it next to the tall cactus.
Add a few 3D Foam Strips on the back of the oval panel. By doing so, the oval doesn’t sag on the card.
Cactus Card Assembly
Place the oval off-center to the upper left. Below it, adhere two arrow die-cuts using the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Lift up the stamped sentiment using 3D Foam Circles White Mix. Randomly place orange enamel dots around the card and attach the panel with E-Z Squares® Refillable Dispenser to a brown card.
