Best of Luck Tropical Hideaway Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a card with you using the Tropical Hideaway Background Stamp. I also used the Lovely & Lasting Stamp Bundle on this card.

I actually stamped this image twice using my Stamparatus. I stamped it first with Night of Navy Ink, and colored all the images. I used a mixture of Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends for the leaves and fronds. And Night of Navy Stampin' Blends to color the background. Once the ink was dried I put the image back in my Stamparatus and stamped it again in Versamark Ink. I then covered it in Gold Stampin' Embossing Powder and heat set it.

By restamping the image and using the Gold Embossing Powder it changes the look of the background stamp. I then cut it down and matted it onto a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock. And then added it to the card base made from Basic White Thick Cardstock.

To finish off the card I stamped the sentiment in and the outline image in Night of Navy Ink. I punched out the image using the Lasting Label Punch. I added a little of the Evening Evergreen Windowpane Checked Ribbon and a few of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots to finish off the card.
