I started my card by diecutting the mountains and cacti from Southwest Border Dies and I passed the cacti through the machine again on the embossing setting, it's faint on camera, but you can see the lines in the cacti. I then traced the upper mountain range so I knew where to inkblend my sunsetting sky. I made the sun by masking the circle first as I…
