Hello! Today’s card is a Double Z Fold card made with products from the Tropical Oasis Suite. This was one of the projects I had prepared for my club, which meets in-person six times a year. However with the sheltering in place orders I had to switch it to a virtual club and mail out kits. Since I didn’t have enough time to prepare in advance the club members didn’t have the Timeless Tropical stamp set on hand so I kept the stamping to a minimum so that they could each use greetings from stamp sets in their own collections. I added more die cut pieces and a label that would accommodate whatever greetings they used.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and fold in half.
Z fold base – cut piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock at 4″ x 10 1/4″, score at 2 1/2″ and 5″ and fold on score lines.
Cut one piece of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut two pieces of DSP at 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″. For one of these pieces you can use a contrasting piece of DSP. Adhere to Z fold piece. If you cut a contrasting piece of DSP adhere it to the middle section.
Die cut two of the labels from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set. One uses a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock for the greeting. Stamp thank you greeting from the So Sentimental stamp set with Terracotta Tile ink. Cut the larger label with scrap piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock.
Die cut a variety of leaves from Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the dies from the In the Tropics dies. I also used the large fern die from the Tropical die set. Before adhering the two labels together, position two of the larger leaves in between both pieces at the top part of the label and then adhere them to the Terracotta label, then adhering both label pieces together. Place label halfway on top of the bottom fold. Arrange remaining leaves under the piece and then adhere them before adhering the label to the card. Apply adhesive only on the bottom half of the label in order to keep the Z fold open.
Add a Noble Peacock rhinestone to the greeting for a touch of bling.
For the inside of the card, cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting of your choice. Adhere to inside of Pretty Peacock card base. Adhere Z fold piece to card base to complete the card.

Hello! Today’s card features the Tropical Oasis Suite and the fun fold was inspired by a recent blog post from Patty Bennett. This is such a fun suite and I especially love the bright and cheery Designer Series Papers.
Here is how I made the card.
Cut piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Cut piece of DSP at 5 1/4″ x 11 3/4″. Score at 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″ and 7 3/4″ and fold accordion style. You can either adhere the smaller front flap to the larger one or leave it open.
Cut Grapefruit Grove label with next-to-largest die in the Stitched Nested Label die set.
Cut Daffodil Delight pineapple base with coordinating die from the In the Tropics set. Cut Old Olive leaf with die from set. Adhere pineapple base to bottom of label. The leaf has some partial cut outs. Pop them open and lightly curl them so they stand out. Adhere bottom part of leaf making sure that top part extends over top of label .
Die cut “aloha” from scrap piece of Real Red cardstock. Adhere to pineapple base with either a Fine Tip Glue Pen or a liquid adhesive.
Partially adhere the label piece to the front flap, leaving part of the right side unattached in order to be able to open the card.
Cut another label from Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the birthday greeting from the Timeless Tropical stamp set with Real Red ink. Adhere to the inside of the card, making sure that you place it close the fold so that it doesn’t stick out when the front flap is folded over.
Adhere folded DSP piece to the card base. You can keep the remaining flaps open or glue them shut. If you keep the back of the flaps open you can decorate them with die cuts or stamp additional greetings on pieces of Whisper White cardstock.
I’m happy that the stamp set and dies will be carrying over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, however please note that they will no longer be sold as a bundle at the 10% discount. The coordinating products such as the DSP, embossing folder, trinkets, etc. will be retiring and will only continue to be available while supplies last.
