A Cute Cactus Card

Good Morning Vic here today. I have a really sweet cactus card that's sure to make someone smile.


You will need the following card making supplies:

You will also need:

  • Mommy Lhey Pokey Green Digital Kit
  • Pigment Inks ( Yellow & Green)
  • Star Stencil and Sponge applicator
  • White Embossing Powder (WOW)
  • Heat Gun
  • Versamark Ink
  • Hearts Die
  • Nuvo Drops


To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Daffodil Plain Card 290gsm to 4 1/8" inches by 5 7/8". I then trimmed down a smaller piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm smaller than the card base. I gently applied some pigment ink around the edges and using the star stencil I applied some pigment ink over the stencil.

I then adhered the whole piece of card onto my card base using some Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm.

I then printed and trimmed out some cactus images and I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm that I ran through the printer. I trimmed them out and adhered them onto the center of the card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

For the sentiment I heat embossed the greeting onto some Mandarin Orange Plain Card 240gsm and adhered a piece of Green Non-Shedding Glitter Card 285gsm just behind the sentiment and adhered this onto the card.

To finish off the card I die cut some small hearts with some Ruby Red Plain Card 240gsm and adhered them onto the card with some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I also added some Nuvo drops.

I think the bright colours of the card are so lovely and will hopefully bring a smile to the recipients face.
