Today I have created a card using the Succulent Garden Suite. I have to say, I was very happy with how this turned out, as it was reasonably quick to create and I can see myself making loads more in this simple, but effective layout. The flower was what took the time, but once you have made one, you can put them together quite fast.
The succulent is made of 2 of each of the 3 largest petals and 2 of the smaller daisy type dies. I sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink using a sponge dauber. A bone folder was used to curl the edges under before joining the flowers together. I found by putting the flowers together in pairs first and then each of the 4 pairs together to make the one giant flower was the easiest!
The Designer Series Paper is double sided, so I cut one piece to be 14.5cm x 10cm, then I cut it through the centre at about 8cm, turned one piece over and joined them together on the card! This is a very quick and effective way to decorate the background. Then I added a strip of glimmer paper over the join.
