Happy Father's Day Cactus Card

 Hi everyone! It's me Tonya and I'm here to share a quick and easy card I created for Father's Day using the Small Wild Desert Cactus Skull Scene Stamp and Southwestern Desert Cactus Flower and Skull Stamp


BPM: Small Wild Desert Cactus Skull Scene Stamp 

BPM:  Southwestern Desert Cactus Flower and Skull Stamp 

MISTI Stamping Tool

Black Waterproof Ink

Watercolor Paper

Paint Brush


Paper Cutter



Various Watercolors and Inks

Various Scraps of Patterned Cardstock

Kraft Cardstock

Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive

Printer for Sentiment

Foam Pop Dots 

Place the stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, ink with black waterproof ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the Southwestern stamp twice since I will be using some of the images to create a 3D effect on the card.
Watercolor the stamped images with various shades of green watercolors/inks, pinks, browns and grays. 

Once dry fussy cut all stamped images out. 
The second Southwestern image cut apart the flowers, cactus and foliage.
Use a stylus to shape the larger cactus and flowers and adhered to the other intact Southwestern image. 

Cut three patterned strips of cardstock, 1 1/2"x6", 1 1/8"x6" and 5/8"x6".
Adhere all cardstock strips to the 4 1/4"x6" folded card base.
Glue larger cactus image to base and place foam pop dots to the back of smaller image before placing on card. 
Print Father's Day sentiment from computer, cut out, mat and adhered to card.
Finish with loops of thread placed behind the raised images.
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
