Wish You Were Here....

This month I received the cute Luau Limited Edition Cricut Cartridge from The cart is on sale for $23.99 right now so don't miss your chance to own this adorable cart!

I am at a 5 day crop this week and was feeling a little sassy when planning my project. I hope you get a giggle out of it.

Project by Tammy White

Using the Luau cartridge, I cut the bar (3rd row, 4th button) at 4" and the layer (4th row, 4th button). I ran the thatch roof through my Cuttlebug with the Distress Stripes Embossing Folder and then used a Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye Inkpad in Toffee to highlight the texture. I used Dried Marigold and Antique Bronze Distress Stickles and Cinnamon Stickles to highlight the items on the bar. For the sand, I handcut some tan paper and then stamped the "sand" with a Stampin' Up stamp using the Antique Linen Distress Inkpad. I used the brush end of a Tombow Dual Brush Pen in Chocolate to write "He He He" on the bottom corner of the "sand" strip. I used Pop Up Glue Dots on the bar and the palm fronds to give some dimension to the card.

Using the Life's A Beach cart, I cut the Palm Tree at 3" and then used Cinnamon Stickles on the tree trunk and brush end of a Tombow Dual Brush Pen in Light Green on the edges of the palm fronds.

I used the Fiskars Border Punch Threading Water on the edge of my card stock and the same patterned paper I used for the base of the bar. I adhered these to a green cardstock.

For the sentiment, I wrote it using the brush end of a Tombow Dual Brush Pen in Chocolate and then used Cinnamon Stickles over it.

That's all there is to it. A nice and easy card for you try.
