Stampin' Up Cactus Cuties Double Easel Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve!  Welcome to another week of the Happy Inkin' Krew Thursday Blog Hop!  This week we were given a color challenge.  We had to use at least 3 of the colors provided... I used Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya and Just Jade.

The card base is a piece of Just Jade scored at 5 1/2".  I scored a piece of Pale Papaya at 2" and 4".

I adhered the large piece of DSP to the Pale Papaya.  I adhered the small DSP piece to a Just Jade mat.  I adhered the DSP/Just Jade piece to the Pale Papaya.  
I die cut a piece of Pale Papaya card stock with Stampin' Up Stitched So Sweetly Die Set.  I adhered the die cut to the card front. 

I stamped the cactus pieces with Just Jade on Basic White card stock.  I stamped the pot with Cinnamon Cider.  I fussy cut and punched the cacti pieces with Paper Snips and Stampin' Up Cactus Builder Punch.  I punched a piece of Calypso Coral using the punch.

I adhered the cacti to the card front with Stampin' Up Dimensionals.

I punched the end off a the Basic White strip with Stampin' Up Banner Pick A Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Cactus Cuties Stamp Set with Calypso Coral ink.  I adhered the strip to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered Stampin' Up 2020-22 In Color Square Gems (currently on clearance while supplies last) to the card front.
The inside is a panel of Basic White with a cacti stamped using Calypso Coral and Just Jade ink.

Thank so much for hopping by!  Up next is Terry Lynn.
