Cactus Card

Living in the dessert and not a huge fan of cactus it can be a challenge to make a card with them -- until I found this cute stamp and die set from CTMH! I paired it with an unlikely pattern paper to keep it whimsical and fun. I kind of wanted it to express "spring in the southwest". I think I achieved that well!
I made this card for my Mom. It is 5 x 7 and has a pocket on the front for some pictures. I stamped the sentiment on the envelope holding the pictures.
 I used pop dots to attach elements of the card to give it some depth and personality.
 It still is cute once the envelope is taken out of the pocket too! My mom displays cards that are given to her so it was important that it looked complete no matter what. Though if I know her she will take the pictures out and just put the envelope that was housing them back in the pocket.
 I also made a set up of Cactus cards for my shop. These are on a smaller scale and universal:

If you are interested in this set or curious to see what other things I have available please follow the link to my store: Naughty and Nice Artist .
Until next time -- Happy Scrappy!

Shabby Chic Wall Hanging

One of the items in the Feb. Flying Unicorn Kit was a nice sized chipboard piece. I decided to download a cute digital piece as the focal point for the piece. My daughter and my birthdays are coming up in June. I like to decorate our Breakfast Nook up for big occasions. I think that two birthdays in the same month call for a Cupcake Shabby Chic type themed Nook. Granted there are no cupcakes on this piece, it will fit nicely into the d├ęcor.

Until next time -- Happy Scrappy!
