Succulent Gardens are all the rage right now and I am on that same train!!! Woot Woot!!! You all know I love flowers as it is but succulents are these cute little things that are just so precious! My Mom got me one for Christmas and so far it is still alive and cute as ever! Here’s hoping I can continue to keep it alive! 🙂
Now let’s get started on this beautiful card! You may have noticed that you can’t see the Old Olive on the front panel! I created this card in a fun way! I started with an Old Olive base measuring 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Then I took a piece of Sweet Sugarplum measuring 4″ x 10-1/2″ and folded it in half like a card. I adhered this to the middle of the Old Olive base. This gives a fabulous little backing but a fun card base. You could always do this with a black base but a white card that you can write inside! You could do this with any card! Now to decorate it, I used the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. I put a strip along the left side measuring 1-3/4″ x 5-1/4″. Then I layered another piece measuring 2-1/2″ x 3″. For the main point, I took a piece of Tip Top Taupe measuring 3-3/4″ x 2-1/4 and layered on a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-1/2″ x 2″. Before adhering it to the taupe, be sure to stamp the greeting from the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set in Tip Top Taupe Ink. It’s always best to stamp before assembling so you can flip it over if you make a mistake. I love that there are 2 sides to every piece of cardstock! 🙂 I tied some of the Succulent Garden Ribbon Combo Pack around the cardstock. This ribbon is like soft and fuzzy. It’s a fun texture! For the flowers, I stamped them from the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set and die cut them out with the coordinating Succulent Framelits.

The greenery pieces were done in Old Olive. I added the greenery flat to the cardstock and popped up the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Love it!!!
It was super easy to create this card and pick the colors because I just used the ones listed in the designer paper! The entire Succulent Suite is beautiful and goes together so well!
