Mix It Up Monday: Birthday Fiesta cactus



When I saw a fabulous cactus card creation by Sarah-Jane Rae, I just knew I had to have a go myself and instantly headed to eBay to purchase goggly eyes. 

Unlike the last Mix It Up Monday project using Birthday Fiesta, This time I chose a hot and clashy combo from my In Color charts, which I thought was perfect for the fiesta theme of the project. 


Now the hat... a lot of people are making cards like this by cutting out the hat from the DSP, but I don’t have the DSP, so took my inspiration from Sarah-Jane but adapted it slightly. Instead of using the little bunting die from the set, I used the cactus die and cut off the left branch to create the top of the hat. The brim is made from the streamer die that comes with the set.
