Cute Potted Succulents

Hey, everyone! I used one of my favorite background techniques to make my projects for Pink & Main today - two for one backgrounds!

I love to create stenciled backgrounds - and then chop them in half to get two cards out of one background. There are so many ways to do this - vertically, horizontally ... but my favorite is at an angle!

I started with a piece of white cardstock and the Herringbone Stencil ( my FAVORITE stencil from Pink & Main! ) and added some copper Metallix through the stencil. Once it dried I used my paper trimmer and just cut my background at an angle. I didn't measure anything - just quickly chopped it in half!

I added my Herringbone Stencil backgrounds to some kraft cardstock and added a thin strip of brown cardstock to finish the edge. My focal images are stamped and colored from the Succulents stamp set. I love the little critters as pots for the succulents! They're so cute! After I colored them I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The sentiments in the Succulents stamp set are just as amazing as the images themselves! There are large block words with small secondary script words inside. Love it!

I hope you enjoyed these two cards and are inspired to make something beautiful! See you soon!
