For Day 2, we are showcasing the Succulent Garden Stamp Set and Succulent Garden Coordinating Dies.
I first created the background by adhering some colored card stock to my A2-size notecard. I trimmed a panel of some Neenah Solar White card Stock measuring 4 x 5 1/4 inches and used an embossing folder to add texture to the background. I adhered this piece on the notecard.
Next, I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on some white card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
I used the Oval Frames Die Set to create the oval frame on the background, that was later on foam-mounted to the card for added dimension. I also adhered the colored images with liquid glue! I know you can’t see it on the photo but I added crystal glaze to the images to make them pop!
I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that was heat-embossed on some black card stock. Here’s another look:
