Use a Stamparatus to stamp the following in Soft Suede Ink onto Whisper White card stock:  hibiscus flower, leaves, and sentiment. 

Crop the leaves and hibiscus flower with the coordinating In the Tropics Dies.  

Color the leaves with the Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend. 

Color the hibiscus flower with the following blends (center to edges): So Saffron Dark, Light & Dark Calypso Coral, Light & Dark Lovely Lipstick.  

TIP: I mimicked the color of the flowers from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper used on the card and envelope.

Use a die-cutting and embossing machine, Old Olive card stock,  along with the embossed leave die (In the Tropics Dies) to crop the leaves. 

Assemble and adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Snail Adhesive. 

Trim the sentiment to 3 1/4 x 3/4.

Flag both ends with either the Banner Triple Punch or Tailored Tag Punch.

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Add a Tropical Oasis Trinket as shown with a Mini Glue Dot.
