Share the Dirt :)

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the weekend! Lots to do, but at least it’s the weekend, right?! 🙂

Today’s Paper Smooches card is a fun one to pop in the mail! 😉

I die cut the cactus several times from both cardstocks and patterned paper. Then I pieced it all together and added some googley eyes for fun! 🙂 To finish off the cutie cactus I stitched him to the PP. I scored the card base, and added the patterned paper panel on top with some foam adhesive for dimension.  I recommend backing your patterned paper with a little cardstock to stiffen it up a bit.(I forgot to do this before I put all the foam on this time. I was on autopilot apparently. shhhh! 😉 )

This is a fun one to mail!  🙂 Paper Smooches: Cactus Die, Word Bubbles Dies, Green Thumb.

Here’s my card!

I see this, and I SMILE! Oh my word, this cactus!! And this sentiment! ❤

This die is the forthcoming Cactus Die and the sentiment is from the soon to be released, Kindness Sampler. That’s right, the “Kindness Sampler”. Gah! ❤

I adore Kim’s little smiling creations! Each time I receive them, I squeal! Just so fun!
Also, on this card, I used the previously released Super Star Dies and the Cross Stitch Die. (I posted another card I made with the cross stitch die HERE.) I blended on a few distress inks, and then embossed this card with the Cross Stitch die. I added the star strip, Cactus, and stamped the sentiment. I finished it off with stitching the panel onto the card base, adding a few sequins, and getting it ready to mail! 🙂

Next stop: The multi- talented Karin Akesdotter! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today! I can’t wait to share more of the fun Paper Smooches products this coming month! Have a great weekend!

Take care- Jill 🙂
