Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high
Way down in Kokomo
~ Beach Boys
Thank you for all of your sweet comments these past few days. You are so kind. Let’s escape together. Doesn’t a tropical contact high sound just lovely?!
What a tease it was to make this card . . . day dreaming about tropical sands, tropical beaches . . . and tropical drinks.
A piña colada has my name on it somewhere.
Tips & Techniques
Assembling this card with so many Die-namics was almost like putting together a puzzle, it was a blast.
The ever-so-talented Barbara Anders has a smart tip to get all the separate pieces of this new Sun Ray Die-namic to align perfectly when you just use the “negative” spaces (here). I followed her tip but also popped up the pieces with dimensional pop-up dots.
When the sun shines on this card you can really see all the popped-up layers. I love that My Favorite Things added extra palm leaves to this new Palm Tree Die-namic so you could add dimension to it.
I added some clear Stickles over the sand/ocean bottom piece – to make that beach sparkle (or maybe just to resemble the salt on my Margarita).
Here are the new toys from My Favorite Things that are the guts and soul of this card – all available Now!
Finished size: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Other ingredients: Echo Park Splash 6×6 Paper Pad, Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles.
Thank you for escaping with me. Have a Sun-Sational day.Pin It
