I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. Today I wanted to share a card I created with last week’s free email-newsletter update subscriber’s svg cut file. I got a little behind on my posting schedule and had to shift some things around, so that is why this project is behind.
Here’s a look at my finished card. I started with a Kraft cardstock base. I added a layer of white cardstock for a mat and then used the striped paper from the Skylark Paper Pack collection for the main background. I used my Pazzles Inspiration to cut the SVG title out in the necessary layers. I used my Cricut Artbooking cartridge and Cricut Expression to cut the palm trees and the notebook paper die cuts. I stamped the lines onto the notebook paper with the coordinating stamp using the soon to retire Twilight Ink Pad.
Here’s a closer look at the palm tree fronds. I used some retired opaques to mimic the coconuts.
Here’s a closer look at the title. I used some buttercup, outdoor denim, white and champagne cardstock.
Quick Tip On Coloring the Palm Fronds
I cut the palm tree fronds in white cardstock. I then used my Pear Ink Pad and sponged the die cut. You can use your daubers or a sponge.
I then used my Topiary Ink Pad and sponged some onto the bottom half of each frond. I also brushed the ink onto the edges to deepen the color and add a little more dimension.
I used my chocolate ink pad to ink the sides of the tree trunks. Adhered the fronds onto the trunks and all done. Super simple.
