Gorgeous. Stunning. Amazing. You know, all those good words. They’re what I use to describe the Succulent Garden Suite of products in the 2017 Occasions Catalog (pages 20-21.) Even the word Succulent sounds so rich and beautiful. I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create today’s card. It was my swap card at a team meeting I attended Saturday. You can see more of the team swaps here. Scroll down to bottom of today’s post to see all the products in this suite.

 

Here’s what I made:

The Oh So Succulent stamp set and the Succulent Garden DSP combine to make this soft and sweet Mother's Day card. I also used the Layering Ovals Framelits, the Stitched Shapes Framelits, the Bunch of Banners Framelits, Banners for You stamp set, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. All by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

The Tip Top Taupe looks a bit darker in this photo that in real life.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then it scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Tip Top Taupe CS to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ (middle layer)
  • Succulent Garden DSP to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (top layer)
  • Tip Top Taupe CS big enough for the die cut oval
  • Whisper White CS big enough for the die cut oval
  • small piece Whisper White CS big enough for the die cut banner
  • NOTE – the last two pieces of Whisper White CS can be either the regular CS or the thick CS, whichever you have on hand. I used the regular to keep down the thickness.

Stamped with the Banners for You stamp set:

  • banner outline in Tip Top Taupe ink onto small piece of Whisper White CS

Stamped with the Oh So Succulent stamp set:

  • sentiment in Mint Macaron ink onto the already stamped banner – curve the photopolymer stamp to fit the banner shape
  • flower outline in Tip Top Taupe ink onto Whisper White CS
  • solid flower in Mint Macaron ink onto the already stamped flower outline

Die cut using the Bunch of Banners Framelits:

  • the stamped banner

Die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

  • stitched oval from the Whisper White CS, with the stamped flower in the upper half

Die cut using the Layering Oval Framelits:

  • scalloped oval from Tip Tip Taupe CS

Assembled the card:

  • Whisper White oval glued onto the Tip Tip Taupe oval
  • Tip Top Taupe oval glued onto the DSP layer
  • DSP layer glued onto the Tip Top Taupe layer
  • Tip Top Taupe layer glued onto the Whisper White card base
  • lastly the banner adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the DSP and the lower half of the Whisper White oval
