Tropical Oasis Fun Fold Card

Today I am sharing a Tropical Oasis Fun fold card made with the Timeless Tropical stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.  This was one of the cards that I was demonstrating on my FaceBook Live last night.  But apparently my feed was cut short.  So I will be demoing this card again this afternoon at 3pm! If you are not friends with me on FB,  check out my FB page HERE!  I do a FB live every Monday night at 7pm where I demonstrate something that I am working on!

Tropical Oasis Fun Fold Card


I absolutely love the Bright colors of the Tropical Oasis Designer paper!  I used Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive and So saffron cardstocks to  coordinate with this bright and cheery designer paper.   One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up! is the 53 exclusive colors coordinate with Stampin’ Up!’s Designer papers so it is very easy to pull together the elements for a project.  The combination of the bright colors with the fun double fold of this card make it very cheerful!

Here are the details of this card:

Tropical Oasis Fun Fold Card

The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of So Saffron cardstock scored at 5 1/2″ which forms the left side of the fun fold.
Inside the card base is a layer of  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock with a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Old Olive cardstock embossed with the  Coastal Weave Embossing folder layered on top of the Lovely lipstick cardstock.

Next is the other half of the fold which is made with a 8 1/2″ x 3″ piece of Lovely lipstick cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.
This piece is folded in half and is reversed so the fold is on the right side and crosses over the left side of the card.  This piece is attached to the inside center of the card base.  I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock to the center for the message.  This piece of Whisper White is cut with the Stitched Rectangle die that measures 2 5/8″ x 3 7/8″.  

Now for the outside layer of the card:
The outside of this layer isTropical Oasis Fun Fold Card a 2 3/4″ x 4″ piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer paper layered on top of the fold.  I cut a frame from Lovely Lipstick cardstock by using the 3rd and 5th Stitched Rectangle dies together.  I placed this over the top of the right fold.
The Left side of the Card base is a 4″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock with a 3 7/8″ x 2 5/8″ layer of Tropical Oasis designer paper.

Lastly is the Stamping Fun:
Stamp the small flower with Lovely Lipstick ink on a scrap of whisper white cardstock.  Then stamp a pineapple using crushed curry and Old Olive inks on the scrap.  Cut these elements out with the corresponding die from the bundle.

Stamp the sentiment “Rest & Relax, you deserve it” with Love lipstick ink on the inside of the card.  Add the pineapple to the corner.  Add the small flower to the outside corner of the fun fold!  Cut out the sentiment “Aloha” from a scrap of so saffron Cardstock and add to the front of the card.

This is the product list for this card.
