My mom LOVES succulents, so I can't wait to make her Mother's Day card using the Oh So Succulent bundle! Meanwhile, I'm getting in some practice with this birthday card. I had such a hard time deciding which sides of the Succulent Garden DSP to use, that I ended up using the opposite sides on another card. I went with the Old Olive and Tip Top Taupe sides for today's card. Tomorrow's card will show the other side of the paper used, as well as a step-by-step photo tutorial, so stay tuned!
Here is what the two sides look like:
When the succulents were stamped, the outline was stamped first, then the center was inked up and stamped off once to lighten the color. After die-cutting, the larger one was stamped again, and the center was fussy-cut and popped up to add some depth.
It's really subtle in the photo, but the Gold Metallic Thread adds a light, airy feel. It's so pretty in real life!
Mom is coming this weekend for a two week visit. I kind of want to hide the Oh So Succulent suite from her, so it won't spoil the surprise come Mother's Day!
