Die Cut background using Simply Succulents

Sometimes a card appears in your minds eye even before you’ve bought the stamp set or dies. This is one of those cards. I try to have a few card ideas in my head before I order a stamp set, so that I know that I can get plenty of use out of it. I don’t always manage control my heart, and some stamp sets just land in my craft room, but I try!

Die Cut Background using Simply Succulents and Potted Succulents from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Simply Succulents bundle includes this fabulous background die. However, it is sized for US card sizes, and so doesn’t quite fit the front of one of our UK cards. But I think I’ve managed to make it work here.

Before cutting this intricate die, I added a piece of Adhesive Sheet. This adds glue to the entire piece of card stock, and so makes it much easier to adhere to the card front. The ombre effect was super easy to create as well, using a piece of the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper which is free with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration.
