Birthday Cacti

When I placed my first order from our new catalog 4 week ago I purchased a cool new die set called Designer Frames Die set.  This cool new die has 4 inserts, 3 of which are words.  Here's a card I made using the Birthday insert and our new Arizona Trail Bundle.

I used paper from our Mother Nature Collection.  The solid colors are Pomegranate Splash, Denim Days, Oatmeal Cookie, and Green Olive.  The pattern is from Mother Nature Prints.

I flicked some Sparkle Silk on the card and painted a bit on the cactus flower.  All stamping was done using Black Licorice ink.  Did you notice the cacti has some coloring?  I used Whip Cream from our Color Burst pencils and a bit of other colors to make the cacti pop more.  This card came about by accident as I really wanted to play with the Designer Frame die. I cut the die and thought it worked great with this pattern. After that I had to go through me stamps to see what worked with the color palette I was using  Yep, I think it worked out pretty good!  What do you think?

These samples are the beginnings of clever communication conveyance by snail mail.....all that schreech of the mailbox opening~ music to a cardcrafter's ear! and anyone benefitting from creative sharing. Keep Looking UP!
