It’s been a while since I used kraft cardstock for my card base and those fantastic succulents seemed to look really pretty against kraft! Plus all those cacti were so much fun to color, experimenting different green copic color combos. On my card Each succulent has a different green shade plus a pop of color on the leaf tops arranged in a rainbow order, of course!

Key Ingredients:

Step By Step Instructions:

  • Die cut from Neenah Solar White paper all the elements you need, using the coordinating Succulent Garden Die Set and Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting machine. Save the negative parts of the dies.
  • Stamp the outline illustrations from Succulent Garden Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using the negative parts of the dies as a guide for a perfect alignment inside the stamping positioning tool.
  • Color the stamps with COPIC MARKERS. I used on this card, starting from left to right:
    • succulent #1 YG40-YG20-YG21-YG24-YG28 & R0000-R30-R32
    • berries R35-R46
    • succulent #2 YG0000-YG93-YG95-YG97 & YR0000-YR00-YR02-Y17
    • succulent #3 YG00-YG01-YG06 & Y11-Y13-Y18
    • succulent #4 G0000-G00-G02-G05 & BG11-BG13
    • succulent #5 YG00-YG01-YG25-YG67 & B000-B00-B02
    • succulent #6 YG11-Yg13-YG17 & BV000-BV02
    • succulent #7 G20-G12-G14-G16 & V000-V05
  • Trim and score an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) from a kraft cardstock. I used Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, Tim Holtz Maxi Guillotine Trimmer and Mini Score Board.
  • Trim a green striped piece of pattern paper from Springtime Paper Pad.
  • Repeatedly heat emboss in white on a stripe of red cardstock the sentiment from Succulent Garden Stamp Set. Don’t forget to prep the paper with a Powder Tool Applicator to prevent the embossing powder to stick where you don’t want it!
  • Arrange and glue in place all the elements on the card front by popping some of them on a foam tape for a bit of dimension.
  • Quickly mask the bottom part of the card front with any piece of scrap paper and splatter some tiny drops of a white gouache on the card front to add more interest.
  • Finish with a few highlights added with a white gel pen.
