Summer is fast approaching and I've been wanting to use Some like it Hot for a while now. With the temperatures we've been having, it feels like Summer. My daughter was invited to a luau birthday party so it was the perfect excuse to make a tropical card. I was in a time crunch, but I think it turned out pretty cute.
I cut a square of watercolor paper and embossed the Wish Big sentiment from the Stylish Sentiments: Birthday set. As I was discarding the excess powder from the focal panel, I realized that I liked the extra specks that stuck here and there. I decided not to brush them off, but emboss those as well.
I die cut all of the pieces and stamped them in bright, fun, summery colors.
I sponged the background using a Hero Arts stencil that I picked up recently at Hobby Lobby. I used Hawaiian Shores ink on Hawaiian Shores cardstock for a monochromatic look.
The sentiment panel is adhered to a square of vellum for some softness and added detail. The die cut pieces are arranged around the sentiment using foam squares.
I added a strip of gold washi tape to tie in the gold embossing powder as well as a sprinkling of crystal clear sequins. Super quick and easy! Thanks for fluttering by!
