A Chic Thank You

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   #OnStage2019   #OnStageTelford2019   Today's card is another fabulous card that I received during the "fancy card" swap at Stampin' Up's OnStage event in Telford, England, last month. It was made by Michelle Bryant, from Norwich, UK. Michelle's blog is Crafty Papers. Go visit and see what wonderful creations she has to inspire you!

Michelle also used the Tropical Chic Suite of products for her card. She made it even fancier by making an extended center fold card. Take a look!
Since Michelle's card is a UK size, my US dimensions might be off a bit. She started with a half sheet of Fresh Fig Card Stock (retiring) and scored it at 4" and 8-1/4". She cut two 4" slits, 1" from the top of the card and 1" from either side of the card. She scored these at the top of the slit and 1" from the slit--these make the card stand up.

Michelle layered a 3" by 3-1/2" Powder Pink Card Stock (retiring) mat on the front of the card. On top of that, she layered a 2-7/8" by 3-3/8" Whisper White panel that she cut with one of the Tropical Dies.

Next, she stamped the flowers from the "Tropic Chic" stamp set in Powder Pink Ink (retiring) onto Whisper White, adding accents with a Fresh Fig Stampin' Write Marker (retiring). She stamped some leaves in Old Olive Ink and used the rock and roll technique to add Mossy Meadow accents. She also stamped a palm front in Sahara Sand Ink and added Fresh Fig accents. She cut all these out with the Tropical Dies. (PROTIP: The "Tropical Chic" stamp set and Tropical Dies are available in a bundle until June 3rd, saving you 10% off purchasing them separately. They will be in the new catalog, but they will not be bundled.)

Michelle layered the die cuts onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. She added a Rhinestone in the center of the flowers. 

Finally, she stamped a sentiment from the "Tropical Chic" stamp set in Fresh Fig onto a 1" by 5-1/2" Whisper White strip and adhered this to a 1-1/8" by 5-1/2" Sahara Sand strip, before adhering it to the card. This strip serves to brace the folded section, so the card stands up.

What a brilliant card! I'm so happy to have swapped with Michelle!
