Tropical View of the Beach - Part 1

hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day holiday. I am still on a Tropical theme........this is a special card. I will show the card front today. So plan to stay tuned for the card inside tom. Finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

A closer view of the message:

This is what is needed for this card:

(1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", score @ 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" side
(1) 3-3/4" x 4-3/8" Island Oasis DSP
(1) 3-1/4" x 3-7/8" Pumpkin Pie CS - use Square Lattice Impression Folder
(1) 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" Whisper White CS
(1) Large Oval Punched in Pumpkin Pie - use Square Lattice Impression Folder
(1) stamped Small Oval Punched in Whisper White

Use a scrap of paper to make a 1-1/4" template circle for the sun. Use the stamping Dauber on Only Orange and More Mustard inks.

Remove template and position the 1-1/4" circle on top to sponge the outer section in More Mustard: creating a "halo effect"

Tear solid CS to make a template for the "sand". Use stamping daubers to sponge along the torn edge.

Use Old Olive ink to stamp the palm tree several times:

Use the Square Lattice Impression Folder on the Pumpkin Pie pieces:

Apply dimensionals to the back:

Apply Pumpkin Pie to the Island Oasis DSP, then DSP is attached to the Tempting Turquoise card front. Card front is now completed..............
