In the Tropics


Today’s Step-by-Step Instructions:

Cut Basic Gray Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Use the largest Ornate Layers Die to cut a layer from regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock, and adhere to the card base.

Cut the next layer from Rainbow Glimmer Paper (a section of yellow and pink), using a smaller Ornate layers Die.


Use the same, fancy edged, Ornate Frames Die, to cut the top layer from Basic Black Cardstock.

With scissors, cut away the fancy edge along the dots.

Place the Friendly Silhouettes, palm tree die, toward the bottom of the black layer, and cut. Glue the two pieces to fit within the Rainbow Glimmer Paper frame, as shown.


The sentiment, “happy day” is from from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. Stamp it in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the wavy, Ornate Frames Die. 

Tack the right side to the edge with glue, and a black dot, and lift the end on Mini-Dimensionals to make it blow in the gentle tropical breeze.


Thank you for visiting today. I hope you see how a photograph can be inspiring for your card making.
