Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a fun Summer Birthday Card to share using some oldie but goodie Joset Design Dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (clouds) to use as a stencil. Place the diecut on the card front and using a blender brush ink the edges in blue ink of your choice. Repeat this until 1/2” from the bottom (the card is landscape).
Step 3 – Using any alcohol markers of your choice use the dot technique to create sand. I used Copics in colors E30, E31, E33, E35.
Step 4 – Diecut Palm Trees in colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish to color. I used White and colored them with Copics in colors E35, E33, E31 for the base of the tree, G28, YG17, YG13 for the Palm Leaves and E37, E35 for the coconuts. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut Parrot in colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish to color. I used White and colored them with Copics in colors G28, YG17, YG13 for the head. B34, B14, B12 for the wings and feathers on top of the head. YR09, YR04, YR14 for the body, legs, feet. Y18, Y15, Y11 for the feathered tail. Assemble with Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 6 – Diecut Party Accessories in colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish to color. I used White and colored them with Copics. I used Y18, Y15, Y11 for the balloon and C4, C2 for the balloon string. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape making sure that the string is behind the wing.
Step 7 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiments using Blue Ink of your choice.
If you wanted to keep it simple you can do Steps 1, 2, 3, one Palm Tree from Step 4 and 7.

I love that parrot and he’s so much fun. I never thought of putting him on a minij-slimline card before. Excellent beach scene.
I giggle every time I see the comical parrot!! Fabulous card!!
