Hello! Samantha here sharing a card I created using one of my favourite Krista Schneider stamp sets called Cacti. One of the things I loved most about making this card was that I didn’t use any colouring medium. The background is cardstock and the cacti’s are all paper pieced with pattern paper! It’s a fun technique that I haven’t used in the longest time…
Step 1: Die cut the smallest Diagonal Stitched Fishtail die 12x using four different colours of cardstock.
Step 2: Position and adhere all the die cut fishtails on to your card front as shown below. Trim off any excess card.
Step 3: Stamp the three cacti on cardstock then die cut them out.
Step 4: Partially stamp each cacti again on pattern paper.
Step 5: Using scissors or a craft knife cut out each cacti part. Adhere these to the die cut Cacti as shown below.
Step 6: (Optional) Punch holes in each cacti and add an embroidery feature.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment.
Step 8: Using foam tape, adhere the cacti’s and embellish the card with a twine bow and enamel dots. Adhere cardfront to an A6 cardbase.
I’ve now coloured and paper pieced this stamp set and I love the look of both –– I loved revisiting this technique again and I hope you get a chance to give it a go too!
