A woman in my hubby’s office is moving away. The office had a party the other day, but no card…so I made one. 🙂 I don’t have StampinUp’s Tropical Party set yet, but my mom was very kind to stamp and mail me some images. She even sent me a strip of the umbrella pattern paper so I could cut out colored umbrellas for the drinks!
The Hawaiian’s have a great saying: a hui ho – which (roughly) means ‘until we meet again’; it isn’t goodbye. That is definitely the right feel for the purpose of this card.
The card came together pretty quickly. One detail I want to highlight is the flock that I added to the coconuts. I love this extra tactile detail.
Since this is a card for the office folk to sign, I added an extra piece of cardstock inside so there are 3 writing surfaces. I added a stamped jungle leaf (CTMH) to those pages to help carry the theme.
