Congratulations Cacti Card

Hello friends - it is hard to believe it is the last day of summer here and it will be officially autumn when we get up in the morning - the cooler weather is very welcome after the heat waves that have been all over Australia.  While there are a few warm days still to happen it seems only right to share this card....

I have used a negative Die in a darker green from the Spellbinders Cacti Wild and Free by Debi Adams and inserted a cacti from the same Die set in a lighter green.

I have sponged the cacti using Imagine Inks and highlighted the embossed areas using a white gel pen - to give definition.  This has been popped up onto white card stock and then angled onto lightly corrugated cardboard using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A Seth Apter Robo Square Die has been cut from stamped card stock and layered over the Cacti.

The sentiment has also been cut from stamped card stock using the Sentiments One Die D-Lites and glued onto the layered card base.
