Cactus Cuties Mother's Day Card

Today, I share a nontraditional Mother’s Day card. Since moving to Mesa, Arizona, almost three years ago, I am fascinated by cactus. You can imagine I love Stampin’ Up!’s Cactus Cuties Stamp Set and the coordinating Cactus Builders Bunch. Find these products on page 66 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

Artfully Layered Slimline Card

Artfully Layered Slimline Card

Welcome to Kim Plays with Paper! Today, I share a bright and cheery slimline card I created with Stampin’ Up!’s Artfully Composed Suite. Find it on pages 32-34 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2022 Mini Catalog

The suite includes a variety of products:

  • The Artfully Layered Bundle (Purchase the Artfully Layered stamp set and Tropical Layers Dies together and save 10 percent).
  • Artfully Composed 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper
  • Vellum 12 x 12 Layering Designs
  • White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon
  • Faux Sea Glass Shapes

Artfully Layered Slimline Card

My featured card uses the Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo color combination. I heat embossed the smaller “open” leaf with White Embossing Power and die cut each of them. I also included a layer of the Vellum 12 x 12 Layering Designs. 

This card measures a little bit different than our regular cards. For this one, cut the base card stock at 8 1/4″ x 7″ and score at 3 1/2″. When you create this slimline card, be sure to order Stampin’ Up’s Slimline Envelopes. You get 15 envelopes for $10.00 (Soft Succulent, White, and Smoky Slate.)
