Hello! Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all retire to the tropics, if only until our lives returned to some normalcy. Today’s card was created for a teacher at our school who decided to retire at the end of this school year. What better set to use than Timeless Tropics for a truly relaxing feel.
Materials & Measurements
- Whisper White thick card base: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
- Tropical Oasis DSP: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
- Pretty Peacock cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Real Red cardstock: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
- Whisper White cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″
- I started this card by using a Pretty Peacock lattice die cut from the Botanical Prints Product Medley glued to the center of the Whisper White card base.
- To create the DSP frame I cut a rectangle from the Rectangle Stitched dies in the center and glued it over the lattice to the card front.
- Next I fussy cut the tropical flowers from another pattern in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper collection and popped them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the corners . The patterns in this collection are bold and vibrant as well as soft and muted.
- The sentiment is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and punched with the Everyday Label punch.
- I edged the sentiment label with another label in Real Red cardstock and used dimensionals here also.
- The inside sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set. I really like this set for the simple font and sentiments.
- I added a few strips of DSP and cardstock to embellish the inside and envelope.
Like a few of my favorite products from the January-June mini catalog, the Timeless Tropical stamp set and the Tropical Oasis DSP will be retiring on June 2nd.
I hope you are doing well and finding some crafting calm and relaxation even if you’re not retiring. I was thinking how thankful I am to be able to immerse myself in these stamping projects. As, I not only benefit from the joy of stamping and creating, I can make cards for all kinds of occasions that pop up without leaving the house.
