Prickly Birthday Card
I needed a Birthday Card in a hurry It was my Aunt's 94th Birthday!. For my family that is a huge milestone!! I didn't have time to run out and buy anything special, so I used what was in my stash.
Since my Aunt loves the desert, I thought a cacus theme would be perfect! I pulled out my Newton's Nook Cuppa Cactus stamp set, and a DCWV paper pack that was cactus themed. I colored the cacti with my Prismacolor Colored Pencils using some techniques I learned in my Kit and Clowder Pencil Class, and fussy cut them out.
I used Gina Marie's largest rectangle cross stitch die for the base layer of the card. I then added a couple of thinner strips of paper from the same paper pack for the cacti to sit on. I pupped the cacti up with 3d foam squares to give it a more dimensioal look.
I know my Aunt is just gonna love his card!!
Thanks for stopping by! As always, have a crafty day ~ Deb
