Succulents and Cacti are so in fashion at the moment, so I was delighted when I saw this lovely die set.
I started with the background and for that I used the Blistered Embossing folder by Tammy Tutterow. I embossed it onto white card then rubbed Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters Distress ink over the card to highlight the design. Then I cut a kraft circle using my Nestabilities Standard Circle die set and added a bit of faux stitching with a white Signo Uni gel pen.
Then I got to die cutting the flower pot and cactus. I cut the flower pot from white card and used alcohol markers to colour it, same for the flower, but for the cactus I coloured the white card by rubbing my Distress ink pad over it before die cutting. This is something I do often as it means that my cardstock matches nicely with other elements on my card.
The 'Hi' sentiment is die cut from black card with the Shapeabilities Phrase Set One die set.
