Red Cacti


Hey there! I’ve got a cute little armadillo and some interesting colored cacti card for ya today.

I was totally inspired by the colors in THIS pin – red cacti? Yes please!

The cacti, from Color Layering Armadillo, were stamped in Pale Tomato and Red Royal, and then the little flowers stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder.

I stamped the armadillo in Dusty Blue, Soft Granite and Charcoal, and then I stamped the middle layer again in Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment was also heat embossed with that gorgeous gold EP on a black strip of cardstock. I die-cut the armadillo and hand-trimmed the sentiment, and adhered both to the base.

Finally, I added a strip of gold foil paper on the bottom. I also added some black dots around the cacti with a Copic pen.

Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!
