Cactus Birthday Card - Lawn Fawnatics #173

Hey friends, it's time for another Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and this time we're doing Dies Only. I started out my card using the brand new Cactus Hillside Border. I die cut the main piece from Cilantro Cardstock, and gave it a bit of definition with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. Then I cut the little agave plants from Sage Leaf Cardstock and defined those with Evergreen Bough.

Next I cut out two pieces of Bristol Cardstock with the ground piece of the Cactus Hillside Border, plus another using the second smallest Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I colored the ground to look like sand with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink, and the sky with Salvaged Patina and a little Evergreen Bough. I also cut a few lines into the sand with the Ocean Wave Accents.

I created a card base out of Noble Fir Cardstock and did a bit of ink splattering with the green Distress Oxide Inks. Then to give it a bit more interest, I die cut the Honeycomb Backdrop out of Sage Leaf Cardstock and glued that over top. Then I assembled my focal panel, added a sentiment from Tiny Tags Sayings: Birthday and adhered it to the card.
