My dear friend needed a Birthday card for her niece who happens to like cacti. I still have the Birthday Fiesta bundle from a couple years ago and I knew the Designer Series Paper with the itty bitty cacti would be hilariously adorable for the background. I enjoyed making this card and it came together quickly.
I want to tell you about my decision to change the location of the cactus flower. As you can see from the card on the left, I originally had the cactus flower on the higher right branch. I decided I would prefer it on the lower left branch. I used my heat gun to blast the spatula end of the Take Your Pick tool about 5 seconds to warm it up. I was then able to slide it gently under the flower and was able to lift the glue dot without any damage! Yay Yay Happy Day!
