Lovely to have you visit me today. I’ve got a tropical themed Thank you card that I am going to share with you. It seems very apt to be making Thank you cards at this time. So many people who are serving, helping, assisting and being kind in an environment where we need it so much at the moment. It’s great to be able to participate in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight this month and you can view the gallery for more gratitude inspired projects.
I used the Tropical Oasis Memories & More card pack with the Partial Die Cutting technique to create the centrepiece with the ukelele.
Partial Die Cutting
This involves fussy cutting around the leaves, ukelele (anything other than the circle). Then place the circle die over the image, lifting the fussy cut parts above the die so it doesn’t get cut in the process. Run this through the die cutting machine. I had to run it through twice because of the position of this image. This resulted in a nice circle instead of having to fussy cut around that. Each image will vary. You can try this with various shapes and have a bit of fun.
The sentiment was stamped in the new Saddle Brown Stazon ink. This is such a warm colour which complements the Tropical Oasis suite. I couldn’t resist adding a quaver from the Music from the Heart stamp set to coordinate with the ukelele for a musical theme.
I hope I have inspired you to make and send some thank you cards. It will lift someone up for sure. If you like my card, I would appreciate you clicking on the ‘Vote for me’ button and selecting your top 5 favourites. The Top 10 winners get to participate in an International Blog Hop at the end of the month so that would be fun.
All products I have used on my card are listed at the bottom of this post. If you live in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would value the opportunity to assist you.
