I really love to use Designer Series Paper in various ways when creating my cards. This card shows one more way that DSP can shine.
The only embellishment on this simple card are the little faux sea glass pieces around the plant.
The plant was stamped, fussy cut, and planted in its pot.
Cajun Craze cardstock
Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper
Plentiful Plants stamp set
Cajun Craze ink
Granny Apple Green ink
Faux Sea Glass Shapes
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of light neutral cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Add a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Cajun Craze cardstock to this card base.
Cut a 1 5/8" x 2 7/8" piece of the light-colored neutral cardstock. About 1/2" from the bottom of this piece, stamp the rounded pot in Cajun Craze ink. On a separate scrap of the same paper, stamp the plant in Granny Apple Green ink. Fussy cut the plant, leaving a small margin, except at the bottom so it can rest nicely atop the pot. Adhere the plant in place.
From Designer Series Paper, cut two strips that measure 1" x 4" and two that measure 1" x 2 3/4". Using the sample card as your guide, add these strips around the edge of the Cajun Craze piece, keeping the pieces as evenly spaced as possible.
Add the plant piece to the center with Stampin' Dimensionals. It should fit just right.
Add five of the Faux Sea Glass Shapes around the plant.
Like people, plants respond to extra attention.
