- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Old Olive cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was added on top.
- The 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Early Espresso cardstock was placed towards the left side with a 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Design a Daydream Designer Paper on top.
- The grass, trunk and palm top were cut from Basic White cardstock with the Palm Dies. The grass and palm top were colored with Old Olive and Granny Apple Green Ink with Sponge Daubers. The tree trunk was colored with Early Espresso Ink.
- The coconuts from Paradise Palms stamp set were stamped with Early Espresso Ink on scrap Basic White and cut with the Dies. All were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting from Paradise Palms stamp set was stamped on scrap Basic White with Early Espresso Ink and cut with the Meadow label die. It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of Adhesive Backed Milky Dots were added to the background. (I like how the white/clear ones take on the color of the cardstock around it…these have a greenish hue to them!)
