Simply Succulents Thank You Card by Secrets To Stamping

There’s a new theme at the Alphabet Challenge – “K is for Kindness – Use Kindness in Your Sentiment.” Since I am working on making more thank you cards, this theme was a great time to make one. Also, I wanted to use a brand new product that I just received, Soft Pastels, so I chose Simply Succulents stamp set to give it a different look.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, this A6 card started with Crumb Cake cardstock that was cut to 9″ x 6 1/4″ and scored at 4 1/2.”
  • After that, I cut the Night of Navy DSP at 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ and the Sahara Sand DSP at 2 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ and layered it on top. Then, they were adhered to white cardstock that was cut at 6″ x 4 1/4.”
  • Finally, I took the Crumb Cake baker’s twine and wrapped it a couple of time around the seam of the two DSPs and tied it into a bow. Then, it was adhered to the card base.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I stamped the Simply Succulent image in black ink and began coloring it with the Old Olive pastel. I took a small sponge and rubbed the pastel into the image. Once that was done, I decided to use the Rich Razzleberry watercolor pencil and very lightly color the tips of the succulents. After that, I cut it out with the coordinating die.
  • Secondly, I stamped and cut the planter, then used the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to give it a little dimension.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Gardens with Night of Navy ink and cut it out with the die in Potted Succulents.
  • Everything was popped up with dimensionals onto the card base, then I added the Matte Decorative Dots for some bling.
