Hi peeps. How’ it going? Vera here and today I am bringing a tropical inspiration.
I know, it’s fall season, but I can’t help thinking tropical as I’ve been feeling homesick lately. I came from a tropical country and I grew up with coconut trees lining up our front yard. So, when I saw this Palm Close Up set, I know I have to have it.
I started by inking up the card panel with various ink color. Once that done, I stamped and heat embossed the palm leaves. I just love the way the leaves look. It feels calming to me personally.
Next, I adhere the adhesive glitter gold paper to a piece of cardstock and run it through the die cut machine with the word hugs from Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies set. I die cut 3 more set from a plain cardstock to layer it up to make it stand out more.
Finish the card by die cutting the word sending and adhere it to the card. By using the gold embossing powder it takes what would be a very simple card to a next level where it also looks elegant. Just because something is simple doesn’t mean it has to be boring, right?
I hope you enjoy today’s card and maybe in a small way it also makes you feel relax and dream of the tropical soft breeze.
Oh yes, don’t forget that Caring Hearts Card Drive is in full swing right now. If you’d like to bring joy to others and brighten the elderly Christmas season please consider mailing in some handmade holiday cards to the card drive. The Ton is one of the generous sponsor.
