Tropical Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share another Paradise Palms Card with you… with a TROPICAL VIBE! This card and transport yourself (or your friend) someplace warm and relaxing! It’s created with a simple technique that adds some fun texture to the card ….

You have a card base of Basic White cut to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ then scored and folded at 4-1/4″. Then your front is 4″ x 5-1/4″ … here is where your texture comes in: Bring out your Simply Score or use your Paper Cutter to add score lines every 1/2″. I love this technique as it’s so simple but gives you that beach shiplap look!!

To create that colorful sun behind your tree, simply cut 1/2″ strips of Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight … all four of these colors come from our Brights Collection, so if you’re new to stamping, you can just purchase the collection of cardstock on page 126 of our annual catalog instead of buying each color of cardstock. It’s a nice way to gradually get into the colors without breaking the bank.

Once all your strips are cut, I like to attach mine to the adhesive sheets (you can cut it down to the size you need, which I made slightly larger than the circle die. It’s two sided so you simply layer the strips onto one side. Then you’ll die cut using the largest circle die from our Layering Circle dies … then simply peel off the backing and attach it to the scored card front.

The greeting is embossed in white and die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. Both the Layering Circles and the Stitched Rectangle sets of dies are must haves in your stamp room, so very versatile!

Hope you enjoyed another look at the Paradise Palms Bundle and today’s TROPICAL Card. Thank you for stopping by ~

Have a wonderful day!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share my Paradise Palms Card with you… Finding a Little Paradise which I think we could all use right now. I’ll also be sharing the dimensions and step by step directions so you can create this card and transport yourself (or your friend) someplace warm and relaxing!

Measurements: 

  • Card Base: Basic Black: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, Score at 4-1/4” and fold in half.  Also need a piece of scrap to die cut palm tree.
  • Cardstock / Mango Medley: 5-1/4” x 4”
  • Cardstock / Basic White: 5” x 3-3/4” (front) 5-1/4” x 4” (inside) plus 4” x 4” to color with blending brushes.

Instructions:

  • Attach the Mango Melody cardstock onto your Basic Black Cardbase.
  • Using 4” x 4” piece of white and a Blending Brush, apply Daffodil Delight to the center of your card and brush out all the way to each edge.
  • Repeat the application of color using Mango Medley to the top portion of the card (edge to edge) and blend down into the Daffodil Delight.
  • Repeat the application of color using Coastal Cabana to the bottom portion of the card (edge to edge) and blend up into the Daffodil Delight.
  • When your cardstock is fully covered with ink, die cut using the () circle die.
  • Die cut large palm tree out of the scrap piece of Basic Black.
  • Attach the circle in the upper / center section of the Whisper White.
  • Stamp greeting with Momento Ink onto Basic White on the left hand side.
  • Take this assembly and using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
  • Secure die cut Palm onto front of card with a Mini Dimensional on top and adhesive on the bottom.
  • Attach card front assembly to the base of your card and the 5-1/4” x 4” Basic White to the inside of your card.

Don’t you just LOVE a fully textured card? Oh my gosh … it totally transforms this card. And of course I could not walk away without adding the Faux Sea Glass to my card, it even pulls color from the circle background.
