For today's card, I followed pattern 29 from the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1 guide. I knew I wanted to use the new For You Darling stamp set, but the sentiments weren't the right size for my design. The Hello sentiment from the Flourishes stamp set fit perfectly. I didn't want a patterned paper to compete with the succulents, so I opted to emboss and sand a few scored lines on Peacock cardstock for the bottom panel. The succulents are stamped with Juniper and Peacock inks. I used the masking technique to stamp Pomegranate and Juniper in the small floral outlines.
To give the card a hint of sparkle, I matted the sentiment with Black Glitter Paper. The Black Dots around the succulents integrate the black into the card design. The succulents and flowers are popped up with Thin 3-D Foam Tape.
A small succulent and flower carries the design to the inside as well.
