Greenery Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn FawnI took my inspiration from the pretty succulent in the photo.  My version is from Lawn Fawn's Stuck on You stamp set.  I stamped the plant and pot, then carefully cut out the image.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I rolled the edges of the plant in pale purple ink to give the leaves a little variation and depth.  I used foam tape to adhere it to a green circle, then placed the circle on the right edge of a kraft die cut tag.  I topped the tag with a bit of green twill from my scrap pile.

After adhering the tag to a lighter green cardstock panel, I added the "thanks" sentiment, die cut using Lawn Fawn's Scripty Thanks die.  For dimension, I layered the cardstock die cut word over a matching craft foam die cut.   The finished panel was adhered to a lime green card base to match the sentiment.  A trio of coordinating green enamel dots arranged around the kraft tag completed the design.
