New recruits who sign up to become Stampin’ Up! demonstrators during Sale-A-Bration receive this cute Mini Paper Cutter and 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper sampler. Two of the designs included in the sampler are from the Tropical Oasis DSP pack on page 39 of the mini catalogue.
I was in need of a gift card holder following our recent weekend away to friends beach place so this paper was perfect (even though it wasn’t an island setting).
The design of this gift card was from Leonie Schroder an Australian demo. I made a few measurement changes from her design to fit my card.
The sentiment and palm image are from the coordinating stamp set – Timeless Tropical.
I’ve kept the card pretty simple as I really wanted to show off the beautiful design in the paper. The colours in this paper pack are Real Red, Terracotta Tile, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock and Soft Suede. I’ve gone with Real Red for my base . This gift card only uses half a sheet so you can get two from an A4 sheet of card stock.
I’ve carried the DSP through into the inside and added the palm tree stamp on the inside. This is one stamp and I used the ‘direct to stamp’ technique for colouring. This is where you colour your stamp in with your Stampin’ Write marker, give the stamp a little ‘huff’ before stamping the image onto your card stock. Markers are a great way to colour in an image when you need two colours on the one stamp.
