Tropical Birthday CardI made this tropical birthday card for my son, who is in Fiji. Since Fiji is a tropical island, I wanted his birthday card to fit. This was a fun card to make.

I actually started with a square card template from the Sunny Day Kit which came with MDS 1. It’s no longer available.  The only thing I kept, though, were the clouds and the background. I added the grass punch from the Celebrate Any Day Greeting Card TemplateI filled it with Wild Wasabi. Then I added the sun from the On the Go Kit and changed it to Daffodil Delight.  Both of the kit and the template are included with MDS 2+.

The palm trees are from Tropical Party Stamp Brush Set. I am so glad I had this stamp brush set. To give it more of a tropical look, I wanted to add some flowers along the ground. They are from Pink Flamingo Stamp Brush Set. I changed the color on them to Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo. On the Melon Mambo flowers, I did add a Circle Punch behind the center of the flower and made it Daffodil Delight. Then I grouped the flower and punch before I shrunk them down to fit under the trees. From there, I just copied and pasted it several times.

The birds came from You Are Loved Stamp Brush Set. The final stamp is the greeting, with is from the Apothecary Art Stamp Brush Set.

What do you think? Does it look like a tropical birthday card? Let me know in the comment box for this post.
