Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

I’ve been using the new FLOWERING DESERT stamp set from Stampin’ Up! all weekend.  It’s a bit of an escape from the 9 inches of snow we have gotten in just a little over 24 hours.  I love the refreshing sight of green instead of nothing but white!

I wanted the main cactus to “pop” so I did a very subtle background of Soft Sea Foam cactus in the background. Stamping off once gave the exact look I was going for.  You can see them, but very lightly.

The focal point cactus is stamped in Granny Apple Green on a layering of a die cut stitched square and Granny Apple Green card stock.  To make the sentiment stand out, I embossed white on black and layered it over top of the focal point.

Quick and easy card to bring warmth to a cold day!  I love bringing a bit of the desert to Ohio in the middle of winter.
