Hello to all of you! So glad you have joined me for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. This week we have a sketch.
This is the card that I made. I used the Tropical Chic bundle and the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.
I am one of those people who have a hard time cutting up my designer paper. I did for this card and I love it. Let me just say that the Stampin' Up! paper makes a card so pretty and so easy!
I started with a card base of Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11. Score and fold at 4 1/4.
I picked three different patterns from the Tropical Escape DSP. The first covers the entire front of the card and is cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. That's the basic A2 size card. I chose a mostly leaves print. The next layer measures 3 x 4 1/2. That's the Blushing Bride flowers layer. The next layer of patterned paper is 3 x 3 1/4. It has a green background with white leaves.
The banner is from Whisper White and measures 3/4 x 4 1/4. The words are from the Tropical Chic stamp set. Stamp in Shaded Spruce. Add with dimensionals.
To decorate, I cut the leaves directly from the designer series paper. Isn't is wonderful that the Tropical Thinlits fit the leaves on the paper! Glue these down. Stamp flowers in Blushing Bride and cut with the thinlits. Add those with dimensionals.
Here's the inside of the card. The saying is from the Tropical Chic stamp set. The lines are stamped in Shaded Spruce. Add some of the left over paper to jazz up the inside!
So, get out your Stampin' Trimmer and cut up some of that designer series paper that you have. You'll love the results!
