When I first saw the challenge at Merry Monday, I was stumped! Tropical and Christmas?? How do they go together?! Of course, the DT had provided some fantastic inspiration, but I was still lost! Moreover, I didn’t think I had anything tropical with me, which I could turn Christmas-y! But then, this Waffle Flower stamp set I just ordered was perfect!
I first created a mask using Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles, adhering it to the center of the card base, I chose three shades of green – Memento Pear Tart, Memento Cottage Ivy and Hero Arts Tide Pool and stamped the leaves from Waffle Flower Leafy stamp set. Once done, I removed the mask, stamped the sentiment from Paper Trey Ink ‘Tis The Season in Memento Tuxedo Black, and the bird from the same Waffle Flower stamp set Leafy, in Memento Lady Bug. I also stamped a few berries from Avery Elle Petals & Stems in Memento Lady Bug. And that’s my tropical Christmas card! 🙂 How do you like it?
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
