Stepped-Up Cactus Cuties Card

On Wednesday, I posted two simple cards using the Cactus Cuties bundle. I’m back today to share a stepped up version. Basically, I used the same layout but changed a lot of the elements.

The card base is Just Jade. I created three shades of green embossing paste by adding a few drops of ink to a small amount of paste & used a palette knife to blend. I used Soft Sea Foam, Just Jade and Evening Evergreen inks to create the ombre effect. The Butterflies and Flower Decorative Masks were used on a piece of Just Jade card stock.

The Bloom Where you are Planted DSP is mounted on a piece of Evening Evergreen. Just Jade Gingham ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack was wrapped around the DSP & tied in a bow. Layering Circle scalloped dies in Basic White and Cinnamon Cider are the base for the cactus.

Compare to yesterday’s simple cards… same basic card, but the ombre embossing, the pebble enamel shapes and the gingham ribbon take the simple card and steps it up.
