Tropical Chic is a fun new stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It has a set of matching Thinlits called Tropical Thinlits Dies and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. Let me tell you. You are going to want to dies that match this stamp set! Not only do they cut the outside of the leaves, they also cut the inside! Stampin’ Up! has really gotten innovated with their dies this year. Plus, they have one die that cuts out a square of leaves. It is a must have item!
I also used a new Embossing Folder on this card called Subtle. It is a perfect name for it because it is subtle! If you look carefully you can see it on the bottom half of my card but here is a close up picture.
It makes it look like the old Textured cardstock that Stampin’ Up! used to sell years ago.
To make this card I first stamped the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist and then cut them out using the matching Thinlits. Then I stamped the flower and the sentiment in Coastal Cabana and cut each one out using the flower die and Layering Circles Framelits. I punched out a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Starburst Punch. I felt like it needed a little bit more so I cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Circle Framelits too.
The Designer Series Paper is called Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper and the ribbon is the 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist. I know it is hard to see because it is behind the leaves and circles.
