Encouragement Card | Graciellie Design - "Thrive"



Gracie's got a wonderful new digital set entitled, "Thrive" and it's filled with inspirational sentiments and succulents!

I decided to go for a slimline design, which would allow me to color the plants in all of my favorite combinations and printed multiples of the succulents, which were watercolored and fussy cut. I spattered a 4"x9" panel of white card stock with pearlized watercolor and attached it to a slimline card base.

I used Pink & Main's "Plaid Slimline Die" to cut a pearlized aqua panel and glued that to the base. This is such a nice background layer for slimline designs! I pulled Gracie's handwritten word 'Thrive' into the Cricut Design Space and created a die cut. Three cuts were glued together for dimension and stability and adhered to a fishtail banner die cut from the same aqua paper. 

The succulent groups were positioned/glued into place and the word banner was attached on top. I added some gems/pearls in coordinating colors to finish up the card! 

After this past year, I hope that soon we will all be on our way to thriving again and that this card will give a bit of much-needed encouragement to the recipient! Thanks so much for joining me today and for taking the time to comment!
