- 4" x 5-1/4" from Rococo Rose Cardstock

- 3" x 4-1/4" from Basic White Cardstock

- 2" square from Basic White Cardstock
Insert the Paper Blooms Designer Paper rectangle into the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the paper inside on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the dry embossed designer paper to the large Rococo Rose rectangle and then to the front of the Seaside Spray card.
Cut a 4-1/4" piece of Rococo Rose 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon so it has a sharp angle on each end.
Lay the piece of ribbon horizontally across the center of the card front. Use a small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the center of the ribbon to hold it in place. Leave the protective backing for the Tear & Tape in place for now.
Mount the "may your birthday be memorable," "rest & relax you deserve it," "thank you," or "hello" sentiment from the Timeless Tropical Set on an appropriate size block. Ink it up with the Night Of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the large white rectangle close to the bottom edge.
Pick out the scalloped, stitched rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies that cuts out a 2-1/2" x 3-5/8" scalloped, stitched rectangle. Place the die on top of the sentiment stamped white rectangle on the platform of your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over the sentiment side to side with the sentiment closer to the bottom. Run through the machine.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape Adhesive holding the ribbon in place on the card front. Add some Stampin' Seal to the back of the sentiment rectangle cut out. Adhere the sentiment rectangle cut out to the front of the card so it is centered side to side and slightly closer to the top.
Mount the large hibiscus flower image from the Timeless Tropical Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Rococo Rose Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Blushing Bride square.
Pick out the matching, large, open hibiscus die from the In The Tropics Dies. Put it on top of the stamped hibiscus image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over the image. Run through the machine.
Adhere the hibiscus cut out to the front of the card so it is in the upper left corner of the white sentiment rectangle cut out and overlaps the top and left edges a bit.
Mount the small plumeria flower image from the Timeless Tropical Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Seaside Spray Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the small white square.
Pick out the matching, smal, open plumeria die from the In The Tropics Dies. Put it on top of the stamped plumeria image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over the image. Run through the machine.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the plumeria cut out to the front of the card so it overlaps the lower right side of the hibiscus cut out and the right edge of the sentiment rectangle cut out.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a large dot from the sheet of Opal Rounds making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the plumeria cut out.
