Monday Montage: Cactus Cuties!

Hello stampin' friends! Welcome back for the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  My project today is so fun!  It was created using the Cactus Cuties Stamp Set and coordinating Cactus Builder Punch. It's a set of four 3"x3" cards and a little box to store them in. 

For all 4 card bases- I chose to use Kraft Paper.  It's a different color and texture than traditional card stock.  It tends to be just a tad bit more rigid.  For the first card created- I stamped the Just A Note sentiment all over the card base using White Craft Ink.  An Evening Evergreen scalloped circle layered with a Basic White Circle help create the main focal image for the cactus.

Card number two was created exactly the same as card number one only with a Polished Pink scalloped circle and Basic White layered circle.  The hello sentiment was stamped onto the card base randomly using White Craft Ink.

Whenever I want to add a subtle border to my cards- I always reach for the Stitched With Whimsy Dies.  As you can see from card number 3- that die set added the perfect touch!

Last but certainly not least is a card featuring an open square "frame".  This was created by cutting a 2-3/4" square piece of Kraft Paper and cutting another square out of the the inner part.  I left a 1/4" border around the inside of the frame.

All images on the 4 cards were inked using the following colors:  Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Polished Pink, White Craft Ink.  To embellish each card- I used White Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack and the Sparkle and Shine Sequin Assortment.  

The adorable card box was created using Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen and Basic White Card Stock.  The DSP is Polished Pink from the 2021-2023 6" x 6" DSP.
