I’m bringing you a tropical oasis greeting card to warm the heart of friends! This card is bright, cheerful, and perfect for anyone–even your freezing northern friends (they especially need a handmade card like this, right?) will LOVE receiving this card!
Today’s greeting card features the NEW Stampin’ Up! Using the New Timeless Tropical Bundle that will be available starting January 3, 2020! Sending a card to a friend for no reason is the best reason to send a card!
The sentiment “Our Friendship is Timeless” touched me when I was thinking about a friend that I have had for a long time. I have a friend who lives in Hawaii and I just know she will love this card. I actually bought the Timeless Tropical Bundle because of her! When I visited Hawaii a few years ago she took me around to all of her favorite places to eat and see. She gave me Lei’s and sweet treats from Hawaii. What a great friend!

Tropical Oasis Greeting Card ~ The Details:
The card comes together so easily after you complete your stamping. On my video you will see how easy creating this card and what inspired me to make it.
When you get a new stamp set sometimes you don’t know where to start. You chose the set for a reason. I advise you to look at the artist’s creations in the Stampin’ Up! catalog to inspire you. After all, you were inspired to buy it because of what you saw in the catalog.
I couldn’t stop with just one card as you will see below. The Braided Jute is super fun and I had to play with again. I share a great tip on my video how to attach the Jute!
On the card above I made it almost the same as the first but I pulled in more of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Papers. If you would like a download PDF of this card you can click HERE
This card was a very different one for me. It’s called Paper Piecing. I cut out two of the Pineapples, one with Daffodil Delight and one with Mango Melody. I used the cut out pieces of Mango Melody and placed them in the Daffodil Delight Pineapple. Whew! That took a lot of time! After I finished I realized that I could have done it easier.
You can cut out one Daffodil Delight Pineapple then place it over a piece of Mango Melody then use snips to cut out the Mango Melody layer and achieve the same results! LOL!
