What a fun card to create! Today I combined the Joset Designs Tropical Floral with her Dolphin die sets to create this Tropical Vibes card. The flowers from the Tropical Floral die set do not need to be shaped, but because I am on Susan's Design Team, I couldn't resist shaping them. Here is how the card was created.
Begin with a 6-inch square card. Cut a piece of white card stock slightly smaller and score around the edges. Attach to the front of the card. Cut a piece of Soft Blue Soft Finish card stock to fit inside the white piece. Score around the edges. Add inside the white piece.
Use the largest Stitched Hexagon and the second largest Fitted Hexagon dies to create a white frame. Use the largest Hexagon die to die cut a light blue hexagon to glue behind the white frame.
Use the Beach Sentiments stamp set for the sentiment inside the Hexagon. Stamp with VersaFine black ink and clear emboss the sentiment.
Attach the Hexagon to the front of the card using dimensional tape.
Use the Dolphin die set and die cut the dolphin and water splash. Cut a small portion of the splash off to fit inside the hexagon. Lightly sponge blue ink around the edges of the splash. Add glue to the splash and add Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to give it a 'wet' look.
Sponge color onto the Dolphin; use light blue and light gray inks. Glue the splash(es) inside the hexagon frame as shown. Add the Dolphin using dimensional tape under the head and mid body and a glue dot under the tail. Add small pearls around the splash.
Use the Tropical Florals die set and die cut 3 Hibiscus, 3 Split Leaf Philodendron, and 3 Fan Palms, using white card stock. Color the pieces with Copic markers. Shape the flowers and leaves using Susan's Flower Tool Kit. Add Pollen to the stamen. Press the Split Leaf Philodendron onto a VersaMark Pad, add clear embossing powder and heat; this will give the leaves the waxy appearance. Arrange all the leaves and flowers, as shown.
This will be a fun card to give to anyone.
