Aloha Aspirations

What You’ll Need
  • Lightly draw a flower shape in the bottom left hand corner of the Lagoon A2 folded card.
  • With the cutting mat placed underneath the card, cut the petal lines with the craft knife (don’t allow cuts to intersect in the middle so that all the petals stay attached).
  • Accent the petals by outlining each one with the white uniball pen. Pull each petal away from the surface of the card slightly for dimension.
  • Punch a mini flower out of the Luxe Blush paper. Add it to the center of the Lagoon flower with a foam square and add a few dots of liquid pearls to the center.
  • Cut two leaf shapes out of the Sage Cardstock. Score them down the center with the Bone Folder and bend slightly at the crease to add depth.
  • Cut a banner out of the Coral Cardstock with the banner die and the Evolution Machine.
  • Adhere the white alphabet thickers to the banner to spell “aloha”
  • Mount the banner to the card with foam squares and trim any excess hanging over the edge of the card.
  • Trace and cut the envelope liner out of Luxe Blush Paper.
  • Mount the Luxe Blush liner to the Pure White Envelope with the tape runner.
