Scraps of Whisper White & Melon Mambo
The Flowering Desert stamp set surprised me by being one of my favorites in the Occasions catalog. While this card has a lot of texture, it's actually really simple.
I started by using the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder on the piece of Shaded Spruce and adhered to the Granny Apple Green base.
I stamped the Melon Mambo strip with the same shade of ink and adhered to the Shaded Spruce. There is a bit of overlap at the top and bottom.
Next, I stamped my cactus pieces with Granny Apple Green on the Whisper White oval. The large cactus was stamped with Call Me Clover and was fussy cut. Adhere both to the card.
I finished the front of the card with Versa Mark and White Embossing Powder to create the greeting on the strip of Black card stock. The Melon Mambo flower was punched with an Itty Bitty punch and finished with a Glitter Enamel Dot.

A simple stamp with the cactus pieces leaves plenty of room to write a note.
