Tropical Christmas with Jenny Alia

Hi, it's Jenny hosting the blog today with a card inspired by this week's challenge theme, Non-Traditional Christmas Colors and the song Mele Kalikimaka.  I thought some of the new travel dies from the latest release would be perfect for a tropical themed Christmas card.  I made a shaker card using the Circle Stitch & Cut Tool set.  I cut a large circle and then cut out the center using a smaller die from the Circle Stitch & Cut Tool set to create the ring.  A piece of plastic toy packaging was then glued to the back of the ring.

The palm tree and surfboard are from the newly released Surf's Up die set.  They are hidden but I also added a couple of the grass clumps set on the ground. To finish off the scene I added a small stitched circle for the sun.  I then sprinkled iridescent fake snow on top of the little scene and trapped the snow by putting a layer of double sided foam adhesive all around the ring.

I hope you like the result.  I love making little scenes on cards and with the bright colors this was a fun one to create.
