I decided to make another ‘nature’ card for The Male Room challenge so used a die I got in the Sizzix sale.
It didn’t take that long to make and was more paper-piecing than stamping but I like the way it turned out.
I die-cut the pop-up cactus out of some teal cardstock and then die-cut and trimmed the cactus again from some paper I had in my stash. This was then stuck on the pop-up to give it a bit more interest. I die cut some sand-coloured card for the ‘desert’, a circle of yellow card for a ‘sun’ and then used a mini die to cut some tiny cacti for the background.
I stamped the sentiment using letters from a calligraphy stamp set as I didn’t have a big enough sentiment that matched the theme.
I then stuck the whole thing onto a card base to finish it.
