Die Cut Tropical Card

Happy Friday-eve! Today, I’m sharing a card featuring a bunch of Erin Lee Creative products, which ended up with an unintentional tropical card.


All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible. 

I went into this card because I had just learned that you could use alcohol inks on Erin Lee Creative’s Glossy White cardstock so I just wanted to play around to see how it would turn out. I wanted to keep it pretty simple so I just used Pool alcohol ink with some Gold Mixative along with the Blender for a very simple alcohol mix. It does move a little differently compared to Yupo paper but it works really well. I used that panel to cut out the main sentiment using the Jumbo Hi die. It’s generally pretty subtle but I thought it was really pretty, adding something special to the sentiment since there’s a good amount of space for the texture on this sentiment.

For the rest of the card, I used three of the dies from the Birdhouse Builder die set. Using copic markers, I added color onto it because I wanted the texture on them. Of course, you could just easily cut them out using different colored cardstock but I had my markers out so I figured why not. I placed the sentiments and the die cuts on a piece of A2 Glossy Black cardstock. Oh my! This is so fun to play with because it’s so dark and made my sentiment and florals REALLY pop.

To finish off this card, I used a few embellishments from Trinity Stamps (which are no longer in the shop, but you can use any ones you have in your stash) to fill up the empty space and I love the final product.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
