Stampin' Up! Tropical Chic Team Swap Card

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Lea Denton, The Crafty Spark...

Oh how I do love this card! I think it's the striking differences between the colours where they are so bright and cheerful and against a black background it really does set them off. 


When I first made the card I did it with just a plain white background but after laying it out I decided needed a bit more texture. I used the Subtle Embossing Folder to texturize the white card stock but left everything else very 'flat' or normal rather I should say. I think it creates I really nice contrast between the two layers. 

I haven't put any sentiments on this card at all as there seems to be quite a lot going on already however, you could put a very simple sentiment on it quite easily without it overloading the card. Unfortunately I didn't film this one when I made it so let me tell you how I did it.

Crafty Recipe

Whisper White A6 Card base: 5¾" x 4" | 14.6cm x 10cm
Basic Black cardstock: 6" x 2½" |  15cm x 6.4cm

  1. Embossing the front of your card using the Subtle Embossing Folder
  2. Lay the lattice element from the Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies at a slight angle and run through your Big Shot or die cutting machine. Adhere to the front of your card and trim off the overhang
