Never Ending Succulent Card

Today I’m sharing a card with you that I made for one of my stamping besties.

Lou & I bonded online and then met for the first time in Brisbane at OnStage – where we had a giggle over both being sent the Succulent stamp set for our display board stamping.

So, there’s a touch of irony in this card – the never-ending succulent card!

A Never-Ending card was one of the first fancy cards I made.  It definitely delivered a wow factor then and still does now!!!

Here’s a video of Lou’s card in action…

A never ending card flips and flips and flips – you just keep going!

There are 4 decorated sides in total.

It’s All In The Layout!

I’m stopping in quickly today to share with you a card we made at the January class – and then another variation I made, just by changing the colours.

Card making doesn’t have to be hard, or constantly inventive – one of my best tips is to create in multiples.

You can do this several ways …

  • Change the colours
  • Flip the layout to landscape (or portrait)
  • Choose a different sentiment
  • Swap in a different main image (ie, a balloon, butterfly, dragonfly, hot air balloon)

I love banners – and the Triple Banner Punch.  They are great for all types of cards, but particularly good for masculine or neutral cards.

This is the class card we made using the Urban Underground DSP & matching cardstock colours
(which is another time saving tip – let SU! help you with colour matching).

I then changed to the card to use the Succulent Garden suite – using the DSP and coordinating cardstock colours.

Next time you sit at the craft table – play around with your designs.  Make some changes and see if you can make a card that’s same-same-but-different with minimal effort.

And while you’re at it, make 2!  That’s a great way to craft efficiently!
