Tropical Party Birthday!

Here's the card I promised to show you yesterday. I merged the giftcard layout from yesterday's post with elements from this cruise swap by Mary Robinson:

I LOVED how the Square Lattice embossing folder gives a "grass thatch" look to the kraft cardstock, especially when it is sponged with a little Soft Suede! I took this concept and merged it with the giftcardholder card layout and came up with this:

Pretty neat, huh! I am pretty pleased with the result. I change up the focal point a bit by using the Scalloped Circle #2 Bigz Die for the Garden Green scalloped circle (a color that is retiring but will be replaced by the return of past In-Color "Wild Wasabi" in the new IB&C on July 1st!) and used the Circles Die for the Whisper White stamping piece.

Here's the inside:

Pretty neat! In the past I've done lots of almost exact CASEing of cards I've received in swaps and from my web surfing, but lately I've been challenging myself to stamp more originally, and even though this card does have elements of the original inspiration, I feel I've changed it up enough to make it my own, what do you think?

Let's try something, shall we? Everyone who leaves a comment on this card from now until Friday May 21st  will have their name put in a drawing to receive this card, including a coordinating envelope ready for you to use! I would love to hear from more of you, I know you're out there!

Until tomorrow, have a STAMPIN' ROX DAY!

Love what you did with this - it really kicked it up a notch. Thought this would be a fun grad party card - especially if you add the line - now that school is over... above the sentiment inside.

Hugs and blessings from a sister demo - Jean
