Casing in the Tropics!

You have to see this very fun card that I cased from fellow demo, Lynn Weiss. I just love her stamping and when I saw this card on her blog, I just knew my card camp gals would love it too!
My card is a bit different than Lynn's original version, I had to put my own little touches on it you know! :)
I loved the idea of carrying over the flowers from the background stamping onto the focal piece. So I stamped these with Rose Red ink on Whisper White cardstock and trimmed them out with my Paper Snips. They are attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I also replaced Lynn's brads with some Hemp Twine wrapped and knotted around the panel. I frazzled out the ends to make it look a bit worn and it really added something to the finished card.
The gals at stamp camp loved making this bright, fun card and I'm so happy that Lynn shared her original idea with us!

Have a great evening everyone!
Blessings,
Robin

  1. Robin, your card is great! I love that lattice embossing folder! It can look like straw (as in your card), like tweed fabric (on a vest for a Father's Day card I saw somewhere) -- it's really versatile with the color you use!
