Hug Me Card

August 29, 2018

Hello crafters!! Today I’ll share with you a card featuring succulents and cacti.

Step 1

Cut White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/4 inches x 11 inches.  Score halfway down the long side at 5 1/2 inches and fold in half to create a top-fold card base.

Take 3 dies from the Cacti die set and die cut out the 3 plants in the middle of card front. Tip: Use a piece of low tack tape to keep the dies lined up while cutting all three in one pass through the machine.

Step 2

Using black ink, stamp the same 3 cacti from the  Cacti Clear Stamp set onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and color them using your preferred coloring medium. Note: Use the die cut out card front to place the stamps in the right position on your stamp block before stamping.

Step 3

Adhere the colored piece of cardstock onto the inside of the card, matching the cut part with the stamped one. Use foam tape to give a more three dimensional effect if desired.

Step 4

Open the card so it is flat. Stamp the sentiment ‘You’re so sharp!’ and the three flowers from the Cacti stamps set on the bottom of the card as shown in the photo below.

Step 5

Adhere  Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the words “hug me” using the Blackboard Alphabet die set.

Cover the sentiment with the Periwinkle Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish the glitter with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Adhere the letters onto the card front between the three cacti and the stamped sentiment.

I hope you get inspired to create your cactus card. Thank you for stopping by.
