I don't know about you, but there is nothing quite like the crafty feeling of someone going through your stash of handmade cards, appreciating your work and being so excited to take some home to send out to their friends and family.
I took a bit of a break from making cards for a week or two-I enjoyed some time with my out-of-state family and my boys! Finally, I was inspired by the current Waffle Flower August 2016 Challenge and made a birthday card to replenish my stash. I knew that the yellow and green tones would be perfect for succulents and added in the blue tones for a background.
I stamped, watercolored and die cut the succulents from the Succulent Stamp Set and coordinating Die Set. These were adhered (the middle one with dimensional adhesive) to a blue watercolored background panel that was trimmed with Lil' Inker Designs Silly Stitched Die Set and a green cardstock base. I added a white heat embossed sentiment banner and some mustard colored pearls to finish off the card.
I'm also joining in on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Celebrate!
What a better way to celebrate someone's birthday...by sending a handmade card. I just need to remember to do this instead of letting them pile up!
