Karen Burniston's April Designer Challenge Card #2

Good morning friends

Today's share is my second card for the April Designer Challenge "Great Outdoors".  I had a 12 x 12" sheet of patterned paper that I really wanted to use for the challenge, so this is the card I came up with.

The palm tree was made using two layers of Kraft card stock for stability, then heat embossed with two different colours. The embossing powder has some sparkle to it which is fun.

On the Pull Tab Frame, I added two fussy cut faux postage from the patterned paper sheet and layered them. You can see all the raised & shiny bits on the patterned paper in the photo. The frame was stamped with my favourite dot stamp to give it a little somethin' somethin' and the bottom faux post was added with foam tape.

When you pull the tab, the frame stands up and reveals the lighthouse faux post and a greeting stamped below

After colouring, I added Glossy Accents to the word 'hello'.

The medallion stencil was used on the back panel, which was left blank as an area to write a message.
