You Are The Greatest (Tropical Chic)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, I shared a card yesterday which featured the Floating Die Cut Frames technique and today’s card features the second card which was created at the same time.  Yes, this technique actually allows you to create two fantastic cards at the same time.  How awesome is that?!

To recap, I used Granny Apple Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Shaded Spruce and Blushing Bride for my colour palette. I stamped up lots of images from the Tropical Chic stamp set and then die cut them out with the Big Shot.

Position the die cut pieces on a piece of paper the size of your card base.  Make sure you cover all of the space and once you are happy with how it looks place a piece of Press ‘N Seal over the top.  The Press ‘N Seal will hold all of the die cut pieces in position while you do the next couple of steps.  Use two rectangle dies from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits die set and position them over the panel to create a frame.  Post-it notes will hold the dies in place while you run the panel through the Big Shot.  You will end up with two pieces – a frame and a rectangle panel.  We are using the frame to create today’s card.

You do need to remove the die cuts/Press ‘N Seal from the base panel.  Make sure you don’t remove the Press ‘N Seal from the die cuts at this point.  Flip the die cuts upside down and adhere Stampin’ Dimensionals over every die cut piece.  Once this is done, position the die cuts on your card base.  You can now safely remove the Press ‘N Seal.  All that is left is to stamp your sentiment and add a little bling.

Here’s the card…


I really do love this technique.  I think it will be fun to try it with different shapes too – perhaps an oval or circle?  I’ll be sure to give it a try and I hope you will too.  And isn’t the Tropical Chic stamp set so fun?!  Such a great set. I cannot wait to use it some more.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
