Stampin' Up Flowering Cactus Life Can Be Kinda Prickly Card

 Today's card features Stampin' Up Flowering Cactus Medley.  I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday as well as Sunday's Stampers Color Challenge for inspiration.

The card base is a piece of Pear Pizazz card stock folded in tent fashion.  I adhered 2 pieces of patterned paper from Stampin' Up Flowering Cactus Product Medley to a panel of Early Espresso.  

I die cut a piece of Early Espresso with Stampin' Up Peony Dies.  I adhered the scalloped edge to the pattern paper.  I cut 2 thin strips and adhered them.  

I die cut a piece of Old Olive with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle dies.  I adhered it to the card front.  

I die cut a piece of Garden Green card stock with the cacti die from the product medley.  I stamped a piece of Basic White with Garden Green.  I stamped flower images with Daffodil Delight.  I die cut the cacti and flowers with the die set from the product medley.

I adhered the cactus to the card front with liquid adhesive.  I adhered the flowers to the cacti with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I stamped the sentiment from the product medley with Old Olive.  I die cut the sentiment with Stampin' Up Stitched Shapes.  I wrapped a piece of linen thread and adhered it to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment square to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inside of the card was completed with a panel of Basic White.  I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso.  I stamped a cacti with Garden Green.  I adhered more of the flowers with liquid adhesive.

Don't forget Stampin' Up Last Chance List.  Many items are selling out quickly.
