Flowering Cactus Birthday
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  Today I am sharing an easy and fun birthday card made with the Flowering Cactus stamp and die set from the Summer Daydreams collection.

Started by stamping the smaller cactus image from the set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Xpress It cardstock.  Colored it with Copic markers, then die cut out with the matching die.  Created the planter by partial die cutting Bristol paper with the Nested Globe die and coloring it in with Copic markers.  


Next, die cut the Lattice Plate from Poppy Stamps three times from Bristol paper and stacked them for dimension.  The sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock, then die cut out with its coordinating die.  Before assembling the card, Salvaged Patina distress ink was applied to the upper left corner of a white A2 size card base.  Was ready to call it done, but then decided to turn it into a faux shaker and randomly add clear jewels within the sunken diamond areas.  Clear shimmer added to the pink flowers finished off the card.


And that’s it.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful weekend
