Cacti card | Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today I am back with a cacti card. It seems that cacti along with pineapples and flamingos are really on trend these days! So let’s make a fun cacti card using these Cacti dies by Sizzix.

Aren’t the colors happy and vibrant?! Perfect for celebrating any occasion. To color my images and give them that watercolor look I used my Nuvo Aqua Flow pens ( SBC | SSS | BLT ). I love using them.

For the sentiment I used another die by Sizzix, the “Sentiment Words” ( SBC | SSS | BLT ). They have so many sayings that it’s hard not to find something to match every card. And can you believe I didn’t do any stamping at all?! Still a gorgeous card!!!

Since this is a card for a celebration I wanted to make it even more festive. So I added a string and banners. Love adding different textures and dimensions!
