Tropical All Occasion Card Featuring #BirdBanter, #TropicalChic, #AllOccasion, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp




We have a new challenge over at Retro Rubber and you are going to love it as much as I did! I love, love, love Tic Tac Toe challenges! The prompts are great and every card will be different. My card, made with Bird Banter from 2017 Occasions Catalog and Tropical Chic from 2018 Annual Catalog, was so much fun to make, using the bottom horizontal line. Which row are you going to try??

My Secrets to Making This Project
  • I wanted my big tropical leaves to look more realistic so I stamped them in the lighter green, Granny Apple Green, and then took a spong dauber to dabbed the darker green, Shaded Spruce, onto the ends of the leaves. Don’t they look great?
