Tropical Birthday


I began by using a Stitched Rectangles die to cut one of the cars from the 12X12 DSP. I backed it with cardstock, so it would be nice and sturdy atop the hexagon.  

The hexagon was made with two Stitched Nested Label Dies. First, I glued the brown DSP to cardstock for sturdiness, then cut the shape with both dies at the same tie.


Next, I raised the hexagon frame on Foam Adhesive Strips, and glued the car in place.

The background is is a fabulous field of palms on a Soft Sea Foam card base.

“From all of us,” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with the Classic Label Punch.


The final touch was a palm branch, cut from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock with a Tropical Die. The card has “Happy Birthday” stamped inside, and is ready for a celebration.


My inspiration was from Freshly Made Sketches.

I’m also sharing with Fab Friday.
