Summer Succulents Lawn Fawn Card

Hi friends! Lynette here! Thanks for checking out my card! The first step I took when creating this card was to make a watercolor background using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi colors in yellow and orange. Next, I stamped Woodgrain Backdrops with Doe ink onto a piece of kraft cardstock, cut into strips, and layered to make the look of a planter box.

The cacti are stamped in Noble Fir, Jalapeño, Freshly Cut Grass, and Celery Stick using the stamp set Stuck On You. Then I layered them in the planter box to make a cool succulent mix. Marvy pens were used to add additional color to the cacti tips and I applied adhesive strips to the back of the kraft cardstock to create the dimensional look. The small butterfly is from the stamp set Chirp Chirp Chirp. The cardbase is from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Rainbow collection.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my card and got some inspiration!
