Tropical Dad Vibes - Stampin' Up! Paradise Palms

 Our weather has been trending cooler since Tuesday but soon enough we'll be having those warm summer days and hopefully by the time Father's Day rolls around we'll be outside enjoying it all.  Whether or not you get those warm tropical breezes or just end up sweating in the humidity like us in Richmond we can make cards no matter the weather!

  We made this card at my last class and I designed it to be more of a masculine feel for either Father's day or a guy birthday.  Just switch out the sentiment for you need!

  This one starts with a Basic White thick base, then using blending brushes and a Basic White panel we added (left to right) Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue ink and then embossed it with the Stripes embossing folder for a fun texture.  The blended panel was then backed with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black.

  The palm tree, grassy mound and medallion strip are cut in Basic black and then layered onto the card front.

  Using the Tailored Tags die we cut a tag for our sentiment.  We stamped off the palm tree stamp in Coastal Cabana and stamped it on the background of the tag twice.  The sentiment is layered over the palm tree in Memento black.  Some black bakers twine and Sea Glass shapes are added to the tag before popping it up on dimensionals.  The Happy & Heartfelt sentiment set is wonderful for all kinds of occasions and even to mix and match with the sentiments in the Paradise Palms set.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
