For my card, I wanted to go with a planter type theme so I used the hardwood background stamp to create a little wooden planter box. I sponged the edged of each piece after I cut it apart and I kind of love it! I made all of my succulents simply by stamping off for the body image and stamping full strength for the outline.
I didn't use the DSP on the card but I wanted to tie the gift card envelope in with it. I love that you don't have to use the exact same products on your projects to make them coordinate! I did add another strip of "hardwood" though.
And finally, who doesn't want some birthday chocolate? I found the cutest little candy rocks at the most adorable candy shop in Tulsa! They are just perfect for this box made from our clear tiny treat boxes. I scored some more "hardwood" stamped cardstock to fit inside to make another little planter.
I simply made a succulent with the dies and adhered it to the top of a clear tiny treat box. It's sponged with old olive on mint macaron. I'm going to miss mint macaron something awful! I added a couple of trailing succulents that I bent a little with my bone folder and some ribbon finished it off.
