Clean + Simple Card: Sale-a-Bration Freebie - Island Vibes
Today I'm sharing a card I created using THREE of the fabulous freebies you can earn with a purchase from Stampin' Up! during the Sale-a-Bration sale that runs through the end of Feburary, 2022. You can check out the card video HERE, or for a closer look, keep reading.
This card was fun to create and came together so quickly! That beautiful pineapple makes my heart happy and I've been thinking about using it for a while. So for the card this week, I took a base card in Basic White THICK and I cut it to 11 x 4-1/4", scored it at 5-1/2" and folded it so that the fold is at the top. I cut a couple of other panels---Granny Apple Green 3-1/4 x 4-1/4" and a panel of basic white 3x4". I used a scrap of basic white for the sentiment that I chose from the Special Moments stamp set--another freebie from Sale-A-Bration for a $100 order. This set has some beautiful sentiments.
I stamped the tropical leaves using Granny Apple Green ink, directly onto the base card. The little strip of DSP from the Sunshine & Rainbows 6x6 DSP is perfect for adding more of the bumblebee color into the design, and also covers any uneven stamping from adding those tropical leaves. It cleans up the edge nicely. I then stamped the pineapple image in Bumblebee ink on the 3x4" panel and layered together the granny green and pineapple panels together, after tying on some Linen Thread. The thread adds a design element, but also adds texture in a small amount that goes great with the tropical vibe of this card. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Basic White using Basic Gray ink. I punched this piece out using the Tailored Tags punch and added this panel to the base card using Stampin' Dimensonals. The final touch was adding a few Artistry Blooms adhesive-backed sequins. These are so pretty and add just a touch of sparkle.
