Good Morning! Today I have a set of four fun note cards made with the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Memories and More card pack. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
The Memories and More card packs by Stampin’ Up! have 6″ x 4″ and 3″ x 4″ double sided cards that all coordinate and special laser cut stickers. This has the following advantages:
- It makes card making easy and quick for the beginner paper crafter or busy person with limited crafting time.
- The cards are perfectly sized and designed for Memory Keeping Journal pocket pages and Scrapbooking.
And the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More card pack has great nostalgic images that perfectly capture a relaxing tropical paradise! Here are four cards that I made using some of the cards in the card pack:
I wanted to make a simple set of 4 note cards with a tropical theme and I used the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes. These are made from a thinner craft paper but with a pretty white foil decoration and the rustic feel goes well with the tropical theme. I ended up covering up the white foil on the cards, but you can see it trimming the envelope sides. The size of the card bases is 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″, so they go perfectly with the large cards in the Memories and More card packs.
My concept was to use a 3″ x 4″ card with a cute image and surround it with a coordinating all over design so I started by selecting 4 of the 3″ x 4″ cards. I couldn’t find good backgrounds for all of them, so I looked through the Tropical Oasis designer series paper and found good matches. For this card, I paired the cute ukulele image with the lily Tropical Oasis designer series paper cut to 4″ x 6″. I used Shaded Spruce to mat the small card and adhered everything with multipurpose liquid glue.
With this card, I used Shaded Spruce as a mat again and paired the hibiscus and frangipani with the 4″ x 6″ bird of paradise card from the Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More card pack.
I feel bad so many beaches are closed, but in carefree times, this is a great idea. And I love these vintage station wagons! I paired this cute 3″ x 4″ Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Memories and More card with an Early Espresso mat and the cute station wagon paper from the Tropical Oasis designer series paper for the background.
For my final card in the set, I chose this fabulous flamingo and paired it with the flamingo background 4″ x 6″ Stampin’ Up! Memories and More card. I used Shaded Spruce for the mat.
For the inside of each card, I cut a 4″ x 6″ panel of Whisper White and trimmed the bottom with the same papers as the background. I added one of the flower stickers to the top corner and that was it. Quick and easy way to create a fun note card set.
Isn’t this a fun set of note cards? I have really enjoyed playing with the Stampin’ Up! Memories and More card packs because they are so versatile and add another dimension to coordinating with other products in the same suite. And there are still so many cute images left in the card pack that I still need to put to good use.
