"There are palm trees somewhere!" That's my mantra on the really cold and snowy days here in New England. We still have months to go before that nonsense though, thank God! But, you know when people drink alcohol you hear them say, ""it's 5 o'clock somewhere?"
Well, there ARE palm trees somewhere, so yeah, it's kinda like that!
P.S - Don't these sparkly gold palm trees kind of make you feel like the sun is reflecting off of them?!
P.P.S. - I might be sharing this card again come mid-February. . .
The base of this card is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock. The first 5' x 3 3/4" layer is Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The sheet of palm frond paper was from one of those Recollections box set of cards that I bought at Michael's for only $5.00 on one of their Hot Buy deals! Using my Big Shot and Very Vanilla cardstock, I die cut a circle from the Stitched Circle dies by Gina Marie Designs. Using this same die, I also die cut a circle in Crumb Cake cardstock, then I tore the top off of to make it look a little like sand with its ragged edge. I adhered the circle to the center of the card using Snail Permanent Adhesive.
I cut the palm trees once from Gold Glimmer paper and once from a sheet of green glimmer paper. I adhered the palm trees to the center of the Very Vanilla circle using Stampin' Dimensionals. On a small scrap of Pear Pizzazz cardstock I heat embossed the sentiment in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then punched out the sentiment with this 1 3/4" punch and adhered the sentiment too the lower right side of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
