How are you all doing? I hope you’re all safe and keeping positive during these crazy times!
We are so excited that Trina P is joining us for this fun challenge as a guest designer! Please stop by her blog and take a look at her card HERE.
For today’s card I have used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday that has a lot of punny sentiments – Tommy and Polly the tropical birds! The stamp set is so cute, birds are beautifully drawn and the sentiments are hilarious!
I kept the card design fairly simple and not too colorful to keep the masculine feel. For the background I decided to use Sizzix Textured Impressions Tropical Leaves. I thought this will add a lot to the background in texture without overpowering the focal point.
From the stamp set, I stamped the toucan and the leaves as well as the sentiment with black ink.
I colored to the images with alcohol markers then used coordinating dies to cut them out.
I adhered a strip of tropical foliage patterned paper under the sentiment strip the trimmed one side to a flag.
I adhered the images to the background, using liquid glue for the sentiment strip, and popped the toucan and the leaves with foam tape.
I just love the way this card turned out! It was pretty quick and simple to make and it think it will definitely put a smile on recipient’s face 🙂
Thank you for stopping by today – I hope you join us for this fun challenge! Stay safe, healthy and happy my friends!
