Quick and simple Tropical Oasis card

Hello everyone. It seems that I’m in a tropical mood with my projects just now. Maybe it’s wishful thinking, lol!

My friend and team mate Elaine set a challenge in her WhatsApp group of crafty friends to create a card using squares so I had a quick go and created this little card…

And here are the components I used, to use as little of the pretty Tropical Oasis designer series paper as possible…

I used Whisper White card measuring 8″ x 4″, scored at 4″ to create a 4″ x 4″ base. I then embossed the front of the card base with the Subtle 3D embossing folder to give it a bit of texture.

I used 2 of the square dies from the Stitched Shapes set on one piece of Tropical Oasis designer series paper, this gives me 2 layers from just 1 piece.

I cut 2 pieces of Lovely Lipstick card to measure 3″ x 3″ and 2″ x 2″ and punched another piece of card with the Medium Daisy punch.

I stamped the Hello sentiment from Timeless Tulips in Lovely Lipstick ink onto Whisper White card and trimmed it to fit. I then added it to a piece of Lovely Lipstick also trimmed to fit. I popped this up with a Stampin’ Dimensional when I added it to my card.

The final touch was to add one of the awesome fluffy Perennial Essence Floral Centres in the centre of the daisy.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s quick card and my tip for making your designer series paper go further. I’ve listed the products I’ve used below and you can click on the links to start your online shopping with me.

Happy crafting,
