Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical bundle. I used the hibiscus stamp and die from this set to make a yellow flower to send a warm, tropical happy birthday message during this cold season. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the hibiscus flower and three large leaves from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tropical cling stamp set using Sahara Sand ink on Thick Whisper White card stock. I used the coordinating dies from the In The Tropics dies to cut them out. I colored the flower with Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed a panel of Soft Suede card stock with the Coastal Weave embossing folder and adhered it to a Terracotta Tile card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Stitched Lace die and adhered it to the embossed panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I arranged the leaves on the lace panel and adhered them with multipurpose liquid glue.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Timeless Tropical cling stamp set on a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with Soft Suede ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered the label to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue over the leaves.

I brushed the flower with clear Wink of Stella to give the flower some sparkle – so pretty! I cut a short length of Braided Burlap trim and unraveled the ends. I folded it and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I added the yellow hibiscus flower to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card front with Crushed Curry crinkled seam binding ribbon.

I stamped the hibiscus flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical stamp set with Sahara Sand ink on a panel of Whisper White after stamping off twice. I made a mask by stamping the flower on copy paper and cutting it out. I laid the mask on the flower and stamped two leaves, also using Sahara Sand ink after stamping off twice. I adhered the panel to a Soft Suede mat and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

I wanted to combine tropical rustic with soft feminine in this birthday card. The rustic is embodied in the coastal weave embossed background and burlap ribbon and the feminine is represented by the lace overlay and sparkle. I think the hibiscus combines the best of both! I hope you like it!
