Succulent Salutations - GIU Day 2

For my Growing in Unity Day 2, I am using the sentiment kit Succulent Salutations . This is a fabulous kit that includes 18 stamps. I am not a gardener so this set is as close as I will be getting to having a plant. I love to fussy cut and paper-piece - this card is perfect for that.


" just take it one day at a time "

  • I started with a Molly & Rex card base,  A pink doily was placed in the upper left corner of the card and trimmed to fit.  
  • The succulents, sentiment and bird were stamped with Memories Black India ink -  I stamped the succulents several times on both Neenah Stardust White cardstock and patterned paper . The patterned paper was from 2 Prima pads - Hello Pastel and Life Time. 
  • I fussy cut the planters and 2 of the succulents, then adhered them to the image stamped on the cardstock.
  • Distress Markers were used to color  several sections of the succulents.
  • The sentiment was paper-punched then stapled to another paper-punched square of patterned paper.
  • A strip of glitter washi was placed along the bottom of the succulent image, then this mage was adhered to the bottom right corner of the card. 
  • A fussy cut bird was adhered to the top of the sentiment. 

Please comment on this post. I will randomly choose 2 winners to win 25 Unity stamps at the end of my GIU week. Thank you for taking the time to visit Meticulosity.

  18. I love your selection of papers, colors. It came together so nicely. Is your doily a purchased one, or is it a die cut? Love the addition of the doily in the corner. Very cute

  23. Very nice! I always wish someone would come up with ink that smells of the respective plants (well not cacti, but in general). How nice it must be to open a card and feel as if standing e.g. in a field of lavender...
