White Christmas or Tropical Christmas?

Are you anticipating a white Christmas or a more tropical one?  We're stuck in the middle.  Last week, we had beautiful soft, fat snowflakes swirling but the forecast for Christmas Day is almost 50 degrees!  That seems wrong.  Maybe I'll turn the furnace off to put a little chill in the air.  No one will complain, I'm sure of it!

Well, if you're having a white Christmas and you don't want one, I made a Timeless Tropical card just for you!  It's a new set in Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog that becomes available January 3 (you'll be at my Catalog Launch Party on Facebook, right?).  There are a TON of colors in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper - I pulled Grapefruit Grove, Soft Sea Foam, Daffodil Delight,and Soft Suede for this card.

The coordinating In The Tropics dies are amazing!  I don't usually buy dies that are so specific to a stamp set, but these dies have a giant and mini pineapple, "aloha", the palm trees, and tons of little palm leaves and flowers that I found impossible to resist.

Some tips for this card: 

  • Die-cut three "aloha"s and use Fine-Tip Glue to stack and adhere.  It makes it stand out more.  Add the glue to the bottom die-cut, not the one you are laying on top.  You won't get glue on your fingers doing it this way.
  • The Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder adds so much to this card!  I embossed both the Grapefruit Grove and Soft Sea Foam layers.  More is more in my book!
  • That teeny Daffodil Delight flower is from the center of the die-cut flowers on my card.  It's so cute!  I used Fine-Tip Glue to adhere it.
I can't wait for you to see this Mini Catalog!  This is just a teaser of all the good to come.
