Elegant and Simple Any Occasion Card
by Sara Cook

I have an elegant and simple card for any occasion featuring the Elegant Succulent stamp.  This stamp is easy to color and can be used for many different occasions.

Stamp and silver emboss the Elegant Succulent stamp on Watercolor paper then heat set.  Lightly mist watercolor paper with water. Lightly add Nuevo Shimmer Powders  Solar Flare and Blue Blitz.  Spritz with more water and let the yellow and blue colors run together.  You can use a damp brush to help spread the color around. Let dry.  On the leaves and berries add water with a brush and then dot off with a paper towel to lighten up this area. Let dry. Die cut with the matching die.  Find a matching dark paper from Fresh Aqua pack and die cut with the Succulent die, no need to stamp.  This is going to create a shadow.

Stamp the Wishing You the Best stamp from the Signature Greetings set on the same dark Fresh Aqua paper and heat emboss with silver.  Die cut with the matching die.

Create a A2 card base from a matching aqua color card stock. Adhere the stamped succulents on top of the dark aqua card stock, offsetting to create a shadow effect.  Adhere the 2 pcs to the card front of the top fold of the card  about 2/3 the way down the card.  Trim off excess with scissors.  Adhere the die cut sentiment to the front lower right hand corner.
