I stamped the cactus onto light green paper from the 6×6 paper pad. I used a few different shades of green Chameleon markers to color in the image. The cactus are cut out and set aside. I used a few different prints, layered on the card base to start this card. To make the cactus pop, I added a circle die cut from the starry print from the paper pad.
To finish the card, I used the stamp ‘Howdy’ from the SG Cactus stamp set and repeatedly stamped across a printed strip of paper. This strip is then attached to the card using my Scotch glue tape.
The following Chameleon markers were used on today’s card: GR2, GR4, CB
I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and set them aside. I also die cut a single cloud from the Avery Elle Pierced Cloud Die set. I stamped the sentiment from the Be a Unicorn set onto the top portion of the Distress panel using some VersaFine Black ink and my Misti Tool. For the shaker portion of the card I used an Avery Elle Stamp pocket and placed the Distressed panel inside the pocket leaving space around it. Then Using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool I created a pocket. I left one end open and added a sequin mix.. You can use sequins, seed beads & glitter to create your own custom mix. Then I sealed the end shut and trimmed the pocket out.
I created a White Card base and adhered the shaker panel using some strong Doubled Sided adhesive. I decided to use some Glue dots to adhere the Unicorns and images to the front of the shaker so they would stay securely attached. I used the following Copics for my images:
