Good morning, all! Hope your weekend is going well!
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? My friend Jan and I finalized the menu for dinner last night. It looks a LOT like it does every year. There’s comfort in tradition, yes? 🙂
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of this last weekend before Thanksgiving with me! If not but you’d like to see my CASE of my teammate Tara’s gorgeous fun-fold card and matching gift box, here ’tis!
While Tara used the gorgeous Magnolia Lane suite for her version, I did a sneak peek of the Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Dies – with the Tropical Oasis DSP. Take a look-see!
And here’s the inspiration set that Tara Carpenter made for me!
While the best way to see how to make the card and box is to watch the video – here’s the basics!
I started by coloring my Mini Pizza Box with my Sponge Brayer and Blushing Bride ink. Then I decorated the top with matted paper from the Tropical Oasis DSP and an Early Espresso sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set (both coming to you on 4 Jan 20!) and some flowers cut with the In The Tropics Die set. A loop of new Braided Burlap Trim accentuates the tropical theme!
I added matted DSP all the way around the box – and it was ready. For our card AND/OR a brownie or cookie or…remember, the Mini Pizza Boxes are food safe on the inside! 🙂
For the card, I cut two pieces of Blushing Bride at 3 1/4″ x 9 3/4″ and scored and folded them both at 3 1/4″ and 6 1/2″. Using Liquid Glue, I overlapped the end squares to create a loooong accordian-fold card!
On the front, I adhered a So-Saffron-matted piece of Tropical Oasis DSP. I added a smaller strip (with the car) as well. Using my Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique, I stamped the Timeless Tropical palm tree – in Early Espresso for the trunk and Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow for the fronds. Then I cut it with the matching die in the In The Tropics die set.
I adhered the palm trees with Liquid Glue.
For the inside, I used a sentiment from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration set called Sending You Thoughts, stamping it in Early Espresso on Whisper White and cutting it out with a Stitched Nested Label die. I popped it onto a So-Saffron-matted piece of Tropical Oasis DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals – on the center panel as the focal point. I added more leaves and flowers – and a Noble Rhinestone gem.
The other panels are decorated with Tropical Oasis Memories & More Card pack stickers or the sentiment from Timeless Tropical.
Et Voila! I feel a little like a broken record but THIS might be my favorite Suite in the upcoming 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog! Tropical Oasis is simply stunning – with the gorgeous DSP and Timeless Tropical stamp set and bundled In The Tropics Dies! I hope you like and that this one has made its way… WAAAAY up on your MUST HAVE list when the catalog goes live!

Everybody handles mornings differently.
Finn gets up with me and then goes back to bed while I walk the treadmill.
Then he gets up again when his Dad gets up and…”helps” us with breakfast and getting out to feed the girls.
Mornings are hard. 🙂
