The flower lei idea came from a post on Angie Juda's blog. I wanted to try creating the lei wreath, and when complete, decided to make it into a card. Flowers are stamped with Rose Red and Tempting Turquoise. Card base is So Saffron, and I stamped tropical images in So Saffron ink around card edge for a border.
The grass skirt card was an idea borrowed from Marie at Stamping Inspiration. My card certainly isn't as involved as hers, but it will give my customers an additional tropical card idea. The card base is Old Olive card stock. I cut another strip of Old Olive to use for the grass skirt and just adhered the top of the card stock to the card base. This leaves the grass part of the paper free to move. Two different tropical designer paper designs were used as well. Stamped sentiment is from the Perfect Punches stamp set on page 131 of the NEW catalog.
Aloha until tomorrow!
