Since today is the last Saturday in August, I thought using the Pop of Paradise stamp set and bright colors was just perfect for my Simple Saturday card. They say the temperature will be about 90 degrees here today and humidity is on the rise, watch out pool here I come!
For my card I used the stamps in the set to create my own background Designer Series Paper for the card. I stamped Melon Mambo Flamingo’s, Cucumber Crush leaves and Delightful Dijon pineapples randomly on the paper making sure some of the images stamped off the paper. The sentiment, also from the stamp set is heat embossed in white on Basic Black and one of the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies was used for the die cutting. The piece is adhered with Stampin Dimensionals and has a piece of Burlap ribbon I cut apart layered behind it. This is a fun easy card to put together.
For this card I only stamped the flamingo and used Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant to create a tone on tone card.
For a paper saving tip, stamp, emboss and die cut the ‘thinking of you’ out of the center of the Basic Black mat. No one will ever see the missing heart as the main image piece will be glued down on top of it and then attached to the card base. This is a great way to save on cardstock on projects like this.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, have a great day – Craft On!
