Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical - Quick Easy Card Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a quick & easy card using the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!.  This card was actually CASED from the January-June Mini Catalog.  If you are not sure what I mean by CASE it means to copy and share everything or to copy and selectively edit.  Its a great way to learn new techniques or to produce a project in a pinch.  But, mainly I use it to learn.  Here's a look at today's card.

Like I said above this is really a quick and easy card to do.  It's perfect to create if you have a birthday coming up for a man, or someone that's in a tropical setting, or even someone you want to make smile.  The fun mix of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper with the Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Palm Trees. The texture added by the Braided Burlap Trim and the Linen Thread just makes me happy.

I stamped my palm trees onto the 2 1/2 x 3 1/4 piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock in Soft Suede Classic Ink and used the matching die from the In The Tropics Dies to cut them out.  I then added the 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to the top part of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Next I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock Classic Ink onto the 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of Whisper White Cardstock and punched it out with the Label Me Lovely Punch, making sure to line the sentiment up toward the top of the punch.

I then added the small strip of Terracotta Tile Cardstock to the label using a little liquid glue. Next I added a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the seam of the card base and the designer series paper making sure to overlap the DSP just a little.  Then I added some of the Braided Burlap Trim to the front and a wrapped some Linen Thread around the card base and tied it in a bow.  I then popped the sentiment up with Stampin' Dimensionals as well as the palm trees.  For the palm trees I used both regular and mini size dimensionals.
