After the dreary winter we’ve had, I’m definitely ready for a little “tropical” in my life and this card fits the bill! This card was made with the Island Vibes Sale-A-Bration stamp set, which is available for free with a qualifying $50 order between now and February 28, 2022. I’ve had so much fun creating with all of the Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set (see them here) but I especially have enjoyed this stamp set.
I needed this card to come together quickly, so I grabbed the first bright Designer Paper I could find, and the Abstract Beauty paper was the first I found! (I do file my papers alphabetically, so it was fate!) The greens and pinks in this paper were perfect, so I just added a few other touches and the card was done!
By the way, this stamp set doesn’t include any sentiments, so I paired it up with the Slim Sayings stamp set. The simplicity and size of the “happy for you” sentiment was absolutely perfect for this card!
You can find complete instructions on how to make this card below, along with a Tutorial you can download and print out. Enjoy!
