Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical Ombre Birthday Card

Hello! Thanks for checking out my blog.  Today's card was inspired by a tropical shirt I bought for my husband a couple of weeks ago!  I told him the first time he wore it that I would be making a card like it for my Masculine Monday card. (If you need this shirt, I bought it at Kohl's.  This print is sold out, but there is a similar one in blue, without the pineapples.  You can find it HERE, and it's on sale! I'm not connected with Kohl's at all, just like to shop there.) 

Basic Gray Card Base ~ 8-1/5" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4" (*2)
Plus a scrap of Basic Gray and Basic White for the ovals

  • Use Versamark to stamp the trees randomly over one of the 4" Basic White pieces.  Sprinkle White Embossing Powder over the stamped images, tap off the excess.  Set with the Heat Tool.
  • Repeat the first step using the pineapple stamp.
  • Use a Blending Brush to apply Basic Gray ink all over the Basic White CS, getting darker as you reach the bottom.  Be sure to start blending off the cardstock so you don't end up with a big smudge.  (Stampin' Sponges or Sponge Daubers should also work for this step.  Use whatever you have handy, or prefer.)
  • Use a soft cloth to rub off the extra gray over the embossed images. 
  • Stamp 'Happy Birthday' in Basic Gray on the Basic White scrap.  
  • Use the Double Oval Punch to punch out the sentiment.  Then punch out the Basic Gray background.  Adhere the sentiment to the Basic Gray background.
  • Use two Glue Dots to attach approx. 20" of White Twine to the bottom right corner of the card, as shown.  
  • Attach the ovals over the twine with Stampin' Dimensionals.

On the other piece of 4" Basic White Cardstock, stamp a pineapple using Basic Gray ink.  Then, attach the CS to the inside of the card with your favorite adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Please contact me if you have any questions, for a catalog (if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA), or to Join!  You can also click the link at the top of my blog to sign up for my newsletter.
