On Point Birthday


Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a birthday Slimline card to share with you today using a cactus die set from Mama Elephants. This uses the Cactus Builder die set which includes the cacti images and the pot.

To create my slimline card I started by creating the background. I die cut a piece of blue cardstock using the largest rectangle from the Picket Fence Studios' Slim Nesting Rectangles die set. I added extra color to the panel using Distress Oxide inks in Broken China, Faded Jeans and Prize Ribbon. I added a small rectangle to the base of the card, colouring it with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink. This was then adhered to a side folding Slimline card that measures 3 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches.

I die cut the pot and base from ochre cardstock adding ink along the sides of the pot. I decorated the pot using dies from Whimsy Stamps Slimline Zig Zag Edger die set.

I die cut the cactus from green cardstock and shaded the edges using Mowed Lawn & Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide inks.

To finish off the from of the card I added a sentiment from MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together Stamp set.

For the inside of the card I added a box pop up to add my sentiment and added decoration. I added another of the stitched rectangles from the Slim Nesting Rectangles die set.

I used the second cactus included in the Cactus Builder die set. The sentiment is from an older Sizzix die set.

The border at the top of pop up and edges of the card were created using Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Edger die set.
