Tropical Oasis Birthday

February 28, 2020

Today’s card was inspired by one in the 2020 Handmade For You Mini Catalogue.  Of course mine probably doesn’t look a bit like the one in the catty but it did inspire me.  I embossed Pool Party card using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Early Espresso card.  I attached a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to Early Espresso card and then the card front.  I inked the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Early Espresso and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out the image using the co-ordinating In The Tropics Die.  The palm trees are attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink.  I used the Timeless Label Punch to punch out the greeting.  I punched Early Espresso card using the same punch and cut it in half. I attached one half to the back of the top of the punched greeting and the other half to the back of the bottom of the punched greeting.  I did trim a little excess away on the sides as well.  The greeting is attached over the palm trees using dimensionals where necessary.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the palm tree image from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto Whisper White card, again, inking the image with Early Espresso and Garden Green Stampin’ Write Markers.  I also stamped the greeting from the same stamp set beside the trees using Early Espresso ink.  I embossed a narrow strip of Pool Party card using the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and attached a narrow strip of Early Espresso card behind one long edge.  The panel is attached to the bottom of the stamped Whisper White card, covering the bottom of the palm tree stems.

What a fun card!  If you are like me and get a little stuck for ideas occasionally, using the catalogue as inspiration seems to work every time.

Bye for now,

Kris
