Bird of Paradise


I first cut three sections of designer paper; the top and bottom from Tropical Oasis DSP, and the middle from Perennial Essence DSP. After gluing these sections to Pretty Peacock Cardstock (4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″), I used the largest Stitched Rectangle Die for cutting.

TIP: The papers you are cutting need to be larger than the die. 

Next, I cut the Bird of Paradise paper with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die, making the DSP shorter with the help of the larger die, to fit the shape I wanted. Then, I backed it for thickness, and added Dimensionals.


Before adhering the Bird of Paradise, I used a Tropical Die to cut three palm fronds in three colors of Cardstock: Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, and Granny Apple Green.


“Aloha” was cut with an In the Tropics Die from Noble Peacock Foil. Isn’t the shine pretty?


My layout is from the Paper Player’s sketch.
