Fun Card - Party Time Tropical Drink!



So...this card turned out so cute...and I am so sorry because I was going to make this on video, and I was half way through with it when I realized that my battery had died in my camera...so that was that. I decided to just finish the card. Maybe one day I will make another one on video. I think Momo made a card similar to this before, but I don't think it was from the Life is a Beach cartridge. I welded this in my Gypsy and then started putting it together. I sponged some brown ink onto the front of the coconut as well as went over the etch lines with my sharpie marker. I used the new Bakers Twine from Scrappy Moms around the card front and it turned out awesome. I made the little tag myself and put an eyelet through it, and then just used the twine to tie the tag to the card. I also popped the umbrella up. For the stick part of the umbrella there isn't a layer that cuts, and I didn't want it the same color as the coconut so I colored it black with my Sharpie to match the umbrella. All in all this card turned out so great. It fits a 5x7 envelope! Hope you enjoy!
