Aloha Card -

Punch two palm trees, one from each shade of green cardstock. Use a pop dot and adhere the dark green palm tree on top of the bright green one. Tie a bow from the 1/8" ribbon and glue to the base of the palm tree. Set aside.


Choose one card design and one coordinating solid card stock from the Card Kit In A Stack.

Rip 1 1/2" strip from the solid card stock. Choose from the alphabet brads to spell

"ALOHA" (or desired wording). Use a ruler to measure the spacing for each brad letter on the paper strip and mark with a pencil. Remember to leave space for the palm tree. Use the 1/8" hole punch and punch at the pencil marks. Insert the alphabet brads into the paper.


Apply double stick tape to the backside of the paper strip. Position the paper strip on top of the card and mark with a pencil.  Peel off the paper backing from double stick tape and carefully place it on top of the card, using the pencil marks as a guide. Glue the palm tree to the front of the card.


Flower Card -

Punch two flowers from the scrap paper. Punch a 1/8” hole at the center of both flowers. Overlap both flowers (one on top of another).  Insert the big brads at the center. Carefully curl the flower petals with the scissors. Apply glue dots to the back of the flower and set aside.


Choose one card design and one coordinating solid card stock from the Card Kit In A Stack.
