Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #95 – Paradise Pretties and Tropical Delights! The twist this month is ‘In to the Wild.’ The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! And there’s a prize in the mix… a $15 AUS gift voucher… so let’s see what you got!
I created a fun tropical friendship card featuring a pile of die cuts. The white hibiscus flowers and palm tree were freebies I received with a Funkie Junkie Boutique order a while back, and the rest of the die cuts are from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine pack.
Despite all the layers, this really was an easy card. I put the die cuts where I wanted them and then adhered them down. The final touches were some simple white dots inside the F-U-N letters with a white Gelly Roll pen and the silver glitter flower stickers in the bottom right corner.
I decorated the inside with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, along with a piece of ephemera from the Amy Tangerine pack.
And one final look… loving how this turned out! What a fun card, lol!
I’d love to enter this card into the following challenges:
