Masculine Birthday Card (Inky Fingers Girls, DON'T LOOK! You might get one of these.)

I needed some inspiration for some swaps that I'm making for the Inky Fingers Swappers. I'm loving my new stamp set (Tropical Party) and embossing folder from the Summer Mini, which my customers will receive in the mail soon. Everything is spritzed with the Vanilla Smooch Spritz. I love the shimmer and it's so easy to use. For the background, I first stamped the trees and then the palm branches. After sending it through the Big Shot with the SU! Square Lattice Embossing Folder, I sponged the edges with the same color ink (Old Olive). I think everything else is self explanatory. The frame behind the greeting is from the Matchbox XL Die for the Big Shot. Yes, it's another exclusive die from Stampin' Up!

I won't be posting as often for the next few months...we have a junior higher in track and the two younger boys are in baseball, so we're running, running RUNNING! :-)

Blessings to you,

  1. Ack! I totally forgot to add this embossing folder to my order and it was on my must haves list. I am getting so old and forgetful...
    What was I saying?
    Oh yeah...
    Love this sample in the monochromatic colors. Really awesome!!

  2. I really like makes me think of warmer times and far off exotic places. ~Lucy :)
