Thinking of Plants

I am so happy to show off part of a brand-new release from CottageCutz -- Botanical 2018.  There are 12 dies in this release, chock full of succulents, flowers, and llamas!  They should be in the CottageCutz store shortly.  The die I am featuring today is called Shelf w/Plants.

To start my card, I cut the pieces from a small scrap of white cardstock.

I colored the die-cut pieces while they were sitting on my sticky board.  This made it much easier because the pieces didn't move -- too much!  After I colored them (using the packaging for inspiration), I assembled the various images.  I used three different green markers for each set of leaves, which gave them a bit of dimension when they were assembled.

I then cut the cardstock for my base:

Cream cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Patterned paper - 4" x 5 1/4"

I cut the oval using the largest of the Nested Wacky Stitched Ovals . . .

. . . and assembled my card base, adhering the patterned paper -- but not the oval..

I applied foam pop dots behind each of the assembled die-cut images and adhered them to the oval.  

I stamped the sentiment below the shelf, adhered foam pop dots behind the oval, and added the oval to the card base; and my card was finished.

CottageCutz dies used on my card are:
