Birthday Succulents

Happy Birthday | by karen @ carefree creations

I do not have a green thumb. My mom does. When I was growing up there were always plants everywhere; many were in macrame hangers. The hanger in this set totally reminds me of all those macrame hangers!

Putting this pot together took some effort. First I die cut and stamped all the images; then, I played around with positioning/layering. Once I had it the way I wanted, I had to glue it together (this was the tricky part – not much overlapped enough to hold it together). I glued some of the greenery together and then, from the back, taped it to pot. To hold it all together, I strategically positioned dimensional adhesive.

I did a twine frame around the card – thought the twine was a good compliment to the “macrame”.

The happy word die cut is a perfect match for the same word in the sentiment! I die cut a couple and glued them together and then over the sentiment for a little more dimension.

Thanks for taking a peek!
