Having cards on hand is one of the best outcomes from doing a blog. To maintain my “on hand” status, I like to do a variety of cards. Today’s card is a “Note” card, but a full size one! Using the Cactus Cuties Bundle make this a Fun time as well.
There is definitely no rule about Note Cards being plain. My version has a bit of bright and shiny to it.
Stamps & Punches
This adorable cactus stamp set is aptly named. It is called the Cactus Cuties. And better yet, it is a Punch Bundle. These are my favorites! After stamping the three different cactus fillers for the pots, I decided to punch the pots from DSP. There are a couple of stamps for different pots, but I wanted them to shine. Additionally, the Just A Note stamp is part of this cute stamp set.
The pink flowers are a stamp and part of the punch as well. However, I simply punched them from cardstock. I wanted bright to go with the darker greens. After choosing the bright pink, I decided it would work perfectly as the cad base as well. Sadly one of the pink flowers fell off of the cactus and is laying on the edge of the pot. LOL! A bit of whimsy in the card.
Paper and Dies
The flower pot and the layer of DSP both are from the Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper. This pack of gorgeous silver and gold paper had not been utilized in quite a while. It was time to bring it out. Paired with the largest of the Scalloped Contours Dies for the layer, it really adds some unexpected shine. These Dies are really a favorite due to the different scallops on the various sizes.
The Magenta Madness base card is cut 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. For the layer, the largest of the Scalloped Contours Dies was used. And the White stamped layer is 3 X 4 3/8. The flower pots are punched and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals, as are the pink flowers.
