Stampin'UP! Oh So Succulent Birthday Card and Gift Box

Hello and Welcome!
Today I am sharing a Birthday Card and Gift Box made with the Succulent Garden Suite. The succulents are so trendy lately and I see so many amazing projects made by other talented demonstrators. The Stampin'Up! Oh So Succulent Bundle has everything you need to make so many different projects. This time I wanted to create a Birthday Card to showcase a beautiful succulent Terrarium and I paired it with a coordinating Gift Box.

To achieve the terrarium look, I made a bowed front card and used the largest of the Layering Circles dies to make a window in the center and I also used the smallest border from the Detailed Floral Thinlits.

I used one of the White Gift Boxes (item# 142000) and embellished it with coordinating Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and Succulent Garden Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this project and found some inspiration to create your own. All the supplies used for this project are available on my Stampin'Up! website HERE
Thank you so much for visiting and Have a Wonderful Day!


  1. Hello Brenden, I am glad you liked this project, Thank you so much for your comment and visiting :)

  2. Absolutely stunning!! 😊 I would love to make this card but not quite sure how you do it? Is it one long piece of cardstock or two pieces for the card?

    1. Hello Amber, to make this card I used one 5" x 10" piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock, fold in half for the Base. For the Bowed Front Piece cut one "5" x 8" piece of Whisper White cardstock and score it on the 8" side at 1" and 7" fold score lines. Add window and borders and other stamping to this piece then attach it to front of card base aligning the folded tabs to the front of the card base this will force the piece to bow. I hope this helps. Thank you so much for your comment and Have a Blessed Day :)
