Hope you are enjoying Vacation week on the GCD Studios blog.
Today, I’ve got a fun way for you to feel like you’ve left town without ever leaving: Make a palm tree inspired card! Check this out!
And believe me, it looks like it was a lot harder to make than it really was.
I made the palm tree with patterned papers (from GCD Studios, of course) and cardstock.
To make the palm leaves, I drew several ovals with pointed edges (kind of like footballs) on a piece of patterned paper.
I cut them out and then used my scissors to snip little triangles off the sides of the leaves. To give them a little a extra pop, I folded them in half. Check out that pop.
The trunk is just a piece of cardstock cut in line. And I decided to let my palm tree masquerade as a coconut tree somewhat and made some nuts for it with circle punches and cardstock.
Supplies: Amber’s Avenue paper – Oh Happy Day!, Hailey paper – Oh Happy Day!, Savannah paper – Oh Happy Day!
See you again soon!
