Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing well. It’s Jenny here today and I’d like to share a summer themed card I created! It’s been ridiculously hot where I live, and I thought it’d be great to create a summer card with our new Palm Tree set and the Coordinating Dies! This set is so fun and easy to layer. I combined these cool palm trees with our older set, the Darling Flamingos, and I think they go perfectly together!
Here is the card! 🙂
*Backdrop Board used: Natural Wood
First, I stamped the Palm Trees images on the white smooth cardstock and die cut them out using the Coordinating Dies. The inks I used on the trees are: Crystal Garden Collection Couture Inks, Found Topaz Dye, and Dark Roast Dye ink. When I decided on the lay-out of the entire project, I went ahead and stamped the two flamingos from our Darling Flamingos stamp set and one of the bigger palm tree from the Palm Tree set on a white A2 sized cardstock. I stamped the flamingos in our Peony Collection inks, Warm Hazelnut Dye, Aspen Cocoa Dye, and Noir Dye ink.
I stamped the sentiment and couple of seagulls from the Palm Tree set in our Noir Dye ink and cut 1/8″ on each side of the panel using the trimmer. Then, I die cut a circle in the middle of the panel, using the 3rd largest die from the (LG) Double Stitched Circle Dies.
Next, I prepared the card base by adhering the Glossy Fine Mint Adhesive Glitter paper on a white A2 sized card base. I adhered the stamped panel on the card, the outer part of the panel popped up with the foam tape. When that was all done, I adhered the die cut palm trees and some sequins (Glass Slippers, Key Lime, and Pink Neptune Mix) to dress up the card a bit!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project! I truly had fun creating this card and I’m pleased how it turned out! I am also planning on combining the Palm Tree set and the Wave stamp set (from our Summer release) on a future project soon as those two sets go perfectly together also! 🙂
