DIY Paper Christmas Cactus Card with Delicate Scroll Vase - Spellbinders -with Video

Christmas Cactus DIY Cards - Spellbinders 

 I have several friends and family members who adore the Christmas Cactus and look forward to when it blooms. Since I have a paper thumb and not a green thumb, I need to stick to paper cactus.  

Fortunately for people like me,  Spellbinders new floral collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn has a fabulous Christmas Cactus die that is easy to make and customizable. This is part of the new  "Susan's Holiday Flora" collection.  She even has vases, baskets for her flora collection however I used a die from another Spellbinder collection as the vase. 

Scroll down for a quick  video tutorial from Spellbinders  showing how easy it is to create your own DIY Christmas cactus. 

Here are images of the dies used today:

Here is a quick video from Spellbinders.  

The paper collection used in this card is from Maja design in Sweden.   The paper I chose for this card is from Maja Design's "Winter is Coming" Collection. 

The cards are embellished with some flat sided, faceted crystals from Buttons Galore's new Sparkletz shaker and embellishment mix called "Packed Powder".  While there are many interesting and sparkly elements to the Packed Powder shaker mix,  I only needed a few crystals for this card. 

Here are the other adorable dies in the collection ( click here to see them all):  
Here is a sample of the card I made using  the Pine Cone and Evergreen Bough Dies.  You can find the blog post here
