One of my favorite new products from the new Annual Catalog is the Tropical Escape Suite. The stamps, the dies, and the paper are amazing. I love our 6×6″ paper stacks. The patterns are perfectly sized for cards.
Today’s card uses up some leftover pieces that I had from another project. The various leaves from the stamp set are perfect for grouping together in layers. For the flower, I inked it in the lighter Petal Pink first and then used a dauber to add a bit of the darker Lovely Lipstick to the center of the flower.
To make my focal point, I started with the “You are the greatest” oval. The banner is glued to the back of the oval with dimensionals. Then the various leaves and fronds are added to the back of the banner with tear & tape. Then the entire grouping is glued to the card base with more dimensionals. The flower is added last to the focal point. And the pearls are scattered around the card.
I mentioned above that these leaves were left over from another project. Be sure to check back on Monday to see that project! It’s going to be perfect for all those pictures you’re taking at the beach this summer.
