Spellbinders Hello Succulent

Hello friends - thanks for stopping by today -  I'm sharing a card created using one of the Spellbinders Die D-lites called Succulent Garden - succulents are trending at the moment and this die is perfect for cards for every occasion. When I die-cut I normally cut a few extra which are great to have on hand for a quick card.

I have cut and embossed the succulents and popped it up onto Spellbinders A Gilded Life Baby Bunting Etched Dies (discontinued)  using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3D Foam Squares on to a Nestabilities Victorian Garden Curved Square Etched Dies then adhered to a pre-cut card base and patterned paper - cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card.

Beige twine has been wrapped around the card front and secured through a button, then glued into place.  The Enamel Dots are some my stash - Basic Grey I believe -I got them so long ago I cannot remember - I am sure that never happens to you!? Wink:Wink!!.  Quick and easy and great for using those left over pieces -makes a great masculine card too.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
