We made this card at my friend Amy Jo's workshop last weekend. I wanted to give them a choice of either Birthday or Sympathy. It worked out great as half of them wanted each.
I chose to use the Succulent Garden designer series paper along with the Succulent Framelits. **Did you know that this pretty paper is now FREE during Sale-a-Bration? Yes; they added it on to the list for the ending days. Be sure to check it out before March is over! (See below for details.)
Can you tell it's sort of a fun-fold card? The front is only a 2 1/4" flap so the greeting layer is adhered to just the upper portion. The white layer is 4 X 2 3/4" and the Sugarplum is 3" X 4 1/4". The DSP is 2" X 5 1/4"
We die-cut our succulents from Mint and Sweet Sugarplum card stock. Did you remember that the beautiful Mint Macaron is retiring in April?! If it's a favorite you should stock up this month or in early April as the 2015-17 In Colors will be retiring in April/May and only available while supplies last. (Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe and Cucumber Crush too)
We sponged the edges in Rich Razzleberry ink and then curled them with the bone folder. You can see how I did this on my Succulents video here.
I chose to feature the Heartfelt Sympathy and Stylized Birthday stamp sets. Here's the inside of the sympathy card.
Here's the birthday version of this same card using the single stamp; Stylized Birthday:
And here's the inside using Endless Birthday Wishes.
