Toucan Celebrate Your Birthday!

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

You can get each individual die for a limited time 25% off. The dies have appeal for all styles of cardmaking. So check them out and make your selections.

Today for your viewing pleasure, I am featuring the new Lattice Slimline die and paired that with the Toucan from our 2020 Beach & Tropical release. I created a birthday card for my daughter-in-law who celebrates in August.  I have plenty of time to make sure it arrives on time (LOL)! I am notorious for getting cards in the mail at the last minute! So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started my card by cutting the lattice in white cardstock. For the background I used sky blue designer paper. I am also using a white card base.

Card Base: 3 3/4" x 8 3/4""
Lattice: 3 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Blue Designer Paper: 3 3/8" x 8 3/8"

Next, I started building my outdoor scene. I cut the toucan with cardstock following the packaging colors. I also cut some extra greenery using the Tropical Bouquet die.
For my sentiment I used 3 different stamps and by masking and the help of my MISTI, I stamped on 3 lines in a grape ink. The banner is one of the extra dies that was included in the Windows Slimline die set. 
Now that all my elements are cut I am ready to start the card assembly. I attached the blue designer paper to the lattice with double sided tape. Then the toucans were attached with dimensional adhesive. I have them standing on a green tropical leaf.  
Next, I attached the banner sentiment and the two tropical leaves. 
The Birthday phrase is from the Fairytale Birthday die. I cut two for more dimension in a grape cardstock.
To finish off my card I attached the image panel to the white card base. I added some additional tropical greenery in the corner. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use this new slimline lattice die with dies you already have in your collection. See you next Saturday.
