Fun, bright and cheerful projects that take you to the tropics are made simple with the Tropical Oasis Memories & More card pack. Sun, sand, palm trees, surf ….. it’s all here in this suite. The background layer is one of the larger cards which I cut down to size. This image took me back to to the place of my birth – Sri Lanka, where street vendors sell young coconuts, with the top cut just enough for you drink out of. It’s not fancy like the coconut in my card but it’s refreshing in the heat.
I fussy cut the coconut from one of the smaller cards in this pack. Don’t be afraid of fussy cutting. This was quite a simple project and it can be quite therapeutic. Make sure you get a good pair of paper snips.
The sentiment has been heat embossed with White Emboss Powder. I stamped the Pool Party layer beneath with the tops of the palm trees in Pool Party ink. Stamping tone on tone (coloured ink on same colour cardstock) gives a subtle background and adds interest to an otherwise plain piece of cardstock. To complete this I added some flowers from the sticker sheets provided in the pack.
