Flowering Cactus Card Class

Being from Az I am in love with anything cactus! And this "Flowering Cactus" medley of product do not disappoint! Love!

Where the two layers overlap I snuck in a super thin magnet so the card secretly closes! The left side is about 2 1/2 inches wide and the right is about the same.

Posted by Rachel Ann on Thursday, April 21, 2016, In : Cards 
I have been holding on to this very photo for over 5 years now! I was waiting for Stampin' Up! to offer the right dies so I could make it and they finally did! The Ironic part is that the dies are now on the retired list. the time I get a class scheduled with the perfect product it gets retired. So, If you like this card you need to hurry and get "Little Number Thinlit Dies"

Posted by Rachel Ann on Monday, February 24, 2014, In : Cards 
Hi there!

Hope you like my card!

Colors I used today include: Raspberry R...
