1. Fold the larger piece of Night of Navy cardstock in half to create the card base.
2. With Stampin’ Seal, stick the white card layer (larger piece of white) on the Night of Navy card base.
3. Using a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, emboss the Crushed Curry cardstockwith the splatter embossing folder from Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folderset.
4. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock, stamp the following from the Cactus Cuties set & Beauty of Friendship set:
a. Tall cactus: Old Olive ink
b. Square pot: Night of Navy ink
c. Flowers: Crushed Curry (x3)
d. Thank You: Basic Gray
5. Using Paper Snips, fussy cut out all the cactus pieces. Trim around the sentiment.
6. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, stick the tall cactus to the pot. Then stick the flowers on the cactus (one on the left branch and two on the right branch). Tie a piece of white Baker’s Twine around the pot. 
7. Stick the three gray pieces on the smaller Basic White to create an ombre effect.  Start with the Basic Gray piece at the bottom, Gray Granite in the middle and Smoky Slate at the top.
8. Stick the ombre gray piece on the embossed Crushed Curry piece so that you have an even border on the top, right and bottom. Then stick it to the white card layer right of center.
9. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals all over the back of the cactus and stick it on the gray ombre.
10. Tuck the sentiment just behind the pot so it sticks out to the left of the pot. 
11. Stick 3 gray dots from the Classic Matte Dots on the Basic White card layer. Stick 2 dots at the bottom left and one at the top right.
