As soon as I saw this sketch, I had an idea to make a Hawaiian lei card. First, I wrapped twine around my card base in the same pattern as the sketch.
Then I stamped, cut and colored about 15 flowers using the Get Outta Town stamp set by Paper Smooches (only after all that did I decide that I only wanted to use 8 of them!). I added some liquid pearls to the flowers and then punched a tiny hole in the center of each flower. I then cut between two of the petals (on each flower) up to the center hole so I could string the flowers on my twine. To help fill in the area between the flowers, I added some adhesive pearls to the twine. I did have to put a mini glue dot on each of the pearls to make them stick to the twine-they weren't quite sticky enough on their own. The Aloha sentiment was made using Alphadot. I was going to stamp the sentiment directly on the card, but instead I stamped it on another piece of paper, trimmed it, and popped it up with some dimensional adhesive so it would stand out a little more. Here is my finished card:
I am so glad you stopped by today! Be sure to check out the other Sparks desingers' blogs to see what they did with this sketch and don't forget to play along with us!
