This Simply Succulent or That Simply Succulent

Happy Monday everybody!  For this Blog Hop I decided to give you a look at something from my latest class.  My class each month most often includes three cards, however sometimes I'll share a 3D project.  I did something a bit out of the ordinary with one of the three projects from my Simply Succulents Bundle Focus Class.  For one of the projects in this class I included the supplies to make either a card or a faux dream catcher.

I all started with a 3" vintage wooden embroidery hoop.  I had stacks of them and wanted to see them be used in a clever way.  I had visions of making some sort of dream catcher with the succulents, but wasn't sure how it was going to all come together.  When I used the Potted Succulents large background die in lieu of tying a web with thread I instantly fell in love with the look.  I even patted myself on the back ;0)

Since this was a class to feature the Simply Succulents Bundle and I do all the die cutting for my kits I couldn't get too carried away with an intricate array of stamped and die cut pieces.  Once I had it all designed I decided to offer the option to take these exact pieces and supplies to make a card for those who didn't want to make the dream catcher.  All I added to each kit was a half sheet of Crumb Cake Cardstock.

After teaching each of my classes I ended up with several of these dream catchers.  My plan is to package a bottle of pink lemonade in a tall cellophane bag and tie a dream catcher as a decorative "bow."  I know just the friends these pretty little thinking of you presents to.

Here's a look at the same supplies arranged on a card.  Those that chose to make the card had a few leftover pieces of ribbon.
