How to make a cactus themed greeting card

What I love about this stamp set is how easy it is to make different looks with the same stamps. There are so many options with this set, you are only limited by your imagination.

For this card, I stamped out the Sharp Stuff images on a piece of white cardstock. Colored the images with Chameleon Pens and then cut out each image.

The background was made using Tattered Angels Glimmer mists to give a really pretty green hue.

Once I had all the images ready to use I made an arrangement on the card and started adhering. I even used pop dots to add dimension.

When the pots of cactus were added to the card I then went back and made some shadows around the base of the pots. This helps anchor these to the card so they don’t look like they are floating in the air.

To help those that need visuals here is a video on How to make a cactus themed greeting card:

What style will you use with these stamps? Will you do something like mine where these are stamped and then cut out? Or do you like to make it look like the entry into a home. Add a door image and a step then add the pots around the entry.

The key is to have fun when you are creating. There is no right or wrong way, just the way you want it to look. Enjoy the creative process and make something that appeals to you.
