Tropical Toucan

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

I am bringing you another BRAND NEW RELEASE!  And it is all about the tropics and the wonderful lazy days of summer!! This selection of dies is on sale in the store for a big 25% off.  Check them out HERE!

I love all the bright colors you use with these dies.  Today, I am featuring the Toucan.  I used bright colors and a black background to make them pop.

Design Steps:
1.  Using the Toucan die cut out all of the pieces using: black, orange, red, yellow, 2 shades of purple and green card stock.  Shade all of the pieces using TH inks and a small applicator
2.  I cut out a branch using brown card stock and the Garden Bear die.  I also cut out additional leaves using Sloth die and 2 shades of green card stock.  Using the Pierced Circle second from the largest cut out a piece of orange chevron DP.  Use a white A2 card base and a piece of black card stock cut 4 x 5 1/4.  Also use a piece of black polka dot DP cut slightly smaller then the black card stock
3.  Assemble the Toucan with a fine tip glue
4.  Glue the polka dot DP to the solid black card stock.  Then glue down the orange chevron circle to the polka dot DP as shown slightly higher then center
5.  Arrange the branch and leaves and then glue down add the leaves at the top right of the circle.  And last glue down the toucan

6.  I added ribbon to the card and this is a trick I use to get the ribbon to lay flat and tight around the card.  I cut a piece of ribbon about 8 to 10 inches and tie my square knot.  Then I hold it up by the square knot and cut the ribbon in half directly below the knot.  I then tape it to the back of the card as shown.  Your card is complete
