As much as I adore terrariums and succulents, I have never actually made or put one together. Unless you count making one on paper (at least I know that kind won’t die on me and my not-so-green thumb)!
I’m still quite attached to the technique of watercolor painting stamped images on a card design and my favorite tool by far has been the waterbrush. I played around with the Live, Love, Grow stamp set by Stampin’ Up! and put many of my ink pads to good use to color in the the stamped images. I also did a little bit of masking with post-it notes to create a little bit of depth in my terrarium.
I also got to play with the small stitched rectangle dies by Lawn Fawn thanks to a dear friend, and I really like the subtle effect it leaves on cardstock. So to begin this card design, I cut out the largest frame from a sheet of watercolor paper using a die cut machine. You could totally skip this step and cut a piece of paper into a 5″ x 3-3/4″ rectangle. This will leave a nice border once you adhere it to the front of an A2 size card base.
