Tropical Chic Shaker

Tropical Chic Shaker Card

Summer has hit full fore here in Georgia and today I was “feeling” the tropical like weather!  That means, hot days, with some quick rain showers to make it nice and sticky!  I wanted something cool looking, and I think I achieved the “look” I was going for, what do you think?

I created a thank you card, but I think this would make a fun Birthday Card too.  The square in the coordinating Tropical Thinlits measures 2-3/4″ X 2-3/4″, so I cut a piece of 3″ X 3″ piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock (I adore this color), and then placed the palm leaves die on top, and this created a 1/4″ square around the die.  Next I cut a piece of Window Sheet at 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and adhered it to the cut leaves.   I added some of the Foam Adhesive Strips on the 3″ square to create my shaker.

I used the same die to cut out some of the leaves in the New Shaded Spruce Cardstock,  I placed inside the shaker square along with some Iridescent Sequins.

The sentiment and flower is from the Tropical Chic Stamp Set, I really like the font. Be sure and order this set as a bundle to save 10% when purchasing.  The cute flower which I stamped in Blushing Bride on Thick Whisper White Cardstock was my final touch.  I used some of the Tropical Escape 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack and adhered it to the entire front of the card.  The DSP has such fun and pretty images, so Summery.

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful and send it on it’s way.  Nothing feels better than to know you will cheer someone up with a fun, heartfelt, handmade card.  I so appreciate your business, and have included all the products I used below for your shopping convenience, and also, there is a supply list you can download and print.

Blessings, and until the next time, remember to hug the ones you love, none of us are promised tomorrow!
