Tropical Congratulations

This card was sent to congratulate someone on getting a new job.  I love this stamp set and dies.  And since my favorite color is green, the designer paper is a big hit with me.

Card Base:  I used a Whisper White note card for the base.  The sentiment from the Best Birds stamp set was heat embossed using Shaded Spruce ink, Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder.  The Stamparatus came in handy here because I had to first stamp the sentiment with the ink and then with Versamark right on top of that.  Great tool!!.  The die cut was cut from Granny Apple Green CS using the Tropical Thinlits.  I cut a square from the Tropical Escape DSP, attached it to the back of the die cut and added it to the card front.

Leaves. Frond & Flowers:  I added a piece of Shaded Spruce CS to a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, cut it out with the die from the Tropical Thinlits and attached it to the card.  On Granny Apple Green CS I stamped the center of one leaf with Shaded Spruce ink and cut the leaf out with a die.  The other leaf was cut from Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green CS using two of the dies, attached them together and added it to the card.  The first leaf was popped up with Dimensionals.  I stamped the flower from the Tropical Chic stamp set on Whisper White CS using Blushing Bride ink, cut them out with the matching die and used Dimensionals to attach them to the card.

The Finishing Touches:  Added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers.  Rhinestones were added to the center of each flower for a little more sparkle.

I'm hoping to send more cards for occasions other than birthday, Christmas, holidays, etc.  It's fun to send a surprise greeting to someone.  Hope you're having a good week.  Have a safe and blessed day.
