3-D Thursday: Lip Balm Cards

While in Aruba, we visited the Aruba Aloe factory. We got to tour the factory, watch how they hand sow the aloe vera gel from the aloe plant, which happens to be growing in their backyard - literally. Talk about low transportation costs to the factory! This is the only crop that Aruba produces, and they are quite proud of it. They call it the "World's Finest Aloe".

They sell all sorts of shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, and healing lotions in the store. I picked up some lip balms for some recent online order thank you cards.

Here's a close-up of the creepy Halloween scene.

I used Sarah Wills's tutorial to make these.

Stamps: Dark & Dreary, House of Haunts; Paper: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Cast-A-Spell DSP; Ink: Sahara Sand, Black Stazon; Accessories: Sponges, 1/2" Circle punch, Slit punch, Basic Black dotted scallop ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
