Watercolour succulents Pop Out Strip Card - JAI#343

So I'm back in love with my Oh So Succulent bundle. If you saw some of my other projects that I have made with them...when I didn't have the framelits...... you'll understand why we have been on a break! The challenge this week over at Just Add Ink is perfect for us to make up. This week the challenge is to Just Add Something Pop-Up & Interactive - JAI#343. Now if you know me, you know I love a good pop up and interactive card!

I am really loving the Pop Out Strip card fold that I first showed you here. It is so easy but is great for showing off your die cut elements....especially now that I can die cut them! The inside looks a bit plain in the photo but I really wanted to showcase the succulents and leave room for a big message.

The front of the card is pretty simple and I was able to use some of  my free Sale-a-bration products - Delicate Details stamp set and Metallic Ribbon. You can choose a free product from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue for every $90 you spend.

The Stitched Framelits that are back in stock are really beautiful for sentiment panels. The stitched detail really adds a touch of class. I've used Watercolour Pencils to colour each succulent. They make it really easy to shade so that you get depth to your images.

A strip on the inside is the perfect place to hang your succulents from. You can find out how to make this card fold here.

So I think I can well and truly say my Oh So Succulent bundle and I have made up and are back on track!


Product List


  1. Stunning Lou!!! Love the succulents - of course - but really loving how you've included the Delicate Details stamp set. Beautiful! Kelly x

  2. Saw you in the JAI gallery Lou and it reminded me that I hadn't popped by your blog in a while; I've just spent a pleasant while catching up on your fabulous makes! I love this pop out and the previous one with the balloons; easy enough to do with a class too as an introduction to a fancy fold. You are a creative genius!

  3. Stunning card Lou! Your colouring is exquisite.

  4. This is gorgeous Lou! I love the beautiful pops of colour from your succulents and how they trail along the lace. Thanks for sharing us with at Just Add Ink this week.

  5. Gorgeous! Love how vibrant those succulents are Lou and how beautifully they look teamed with the Taupe. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink for our first 2017 challenge!

  6. Such a gorgeous birthday card Lou! Your layers of colour and pattern are so soft and pretty on the front and then so bright and beautifully highlighted inside! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  7. This is a beauty, Lou. Your colouring is gorgeous. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!

  8. I'm not a fan of the succulents stuff at all, but I REALLY love what you've done with them! The colouring is amazing, and I love the little touches of lace. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink.

  9. I'm with Tina, the succulents are doing nothing for me, however, your projects are awesome! I love the bright pop of colour, and the inside of your card is far from plain. I haven't seen this particular style before, but I'll be sure to give it a whirl soon. Thanks for joining the first Just Add Ink challenge of the year. x

  10. Wow, the vibrance & depth of colour in your succulents is so brilliant, Lou & they work so beautifully with the floral dsp. Great fancy fold too. Glad you could play along at JAI.
    Di :)

  11. All of what they said above! I will be taking a look at how to make this. I have that bundle in my next demonstrator order. Congrats on Honorable Mention in JAI.
