Stampin’ Up! Pop of Paradise card

If it’s Friday it must be a Daring Cardmakers card! And because it’s a new month there’s an elemental theme for this week. Here’s what we had to play with:

And here’s the card I made based on the theme:

Stampin' Up! Pop of Paradise

I made this card using a stamp set that I rarely use – Pop of Paradise. I decided to make my own DSP background using one of the leaf stamps in Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum.

Those little tiny hearts between the leaves come from Layering Love and I used Calypso Coral to carry on the pinky theme. I fussy cut out the flamingo because I wanted him half on and half off the white piece of card.

There’s no magic formula for the diagonal cut – I just put it in my trimmer and cut where I thought I’d like it to be. I wanted enough room for the sentiment and flamingo.

The leaf background piece is stuck directly to the card base, and the white piece I popped up using some fun foam.  For the heart I used the Sweet and Sassy Framelits to cut it out.

So there you have it. A kind of Valentine card I guess. Those gems that you can see are clear Faceted Gems that I coloured with a Cherry Cobbler blends pen.

Back soon!
