Aloha! Today’s featured die is item number 656053 Sizzix Bigz XL Die by Brenda Pinnick as featured in the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop. Her elegant die made the core shapes which I formed into an invitation for a tropical escape. I combined the cool colors of the ocean in the watercolor paper with some warm natural fabrics, buttons and hand stitches for a textural escape from your average printed greeting card.

Cherish, this is a clever idea. I rarely think to cut pieces down and adapt them for different projects. Love the watercolor and the stitching!
Very pretty! The stitching is cool across the top!
Whata a great invitation. I love the colors and layers.
