It’s Your Day with Timeless Tropical
Here is a card a designed for a “GUY” themed swap. I am using the Timeless Tropical Suite of products, plus the added A Good Man stamp set for the sentiments. I also used a bit of a different layout for the card, which I will discuss and show you. But also, with these demo swaps, one goal is to make the card easy to CASE! We want to share cards that even beginner stampers could accomplish.
So, how is this layout different?
Well the front is trimmed down on the end by 1 1/4. But don’t worry, I didn’t waste that trimmed off cardstock. Instead I embossed it with the Coastal Weave embossing folder, and then adhered it to the inside edge of the card. So when closed it looks like a full card. When opened, it has a hit of embellishment on the inside.
What else was different?
Well the front and inside panels are both 4 x 4! Which for those of us who love our Designer Series Papers, that makes it easy to create 9 cards from just one sheet. And if you love that, you might want to consider using our 12 x 12 Neutral Card stocks as well. Less scrap is always a good thing.

Now watch as I go through the entire project from start to finish for you. We don’t waste any of the card base in the design. See how easy it is to change the basic layout of a card with a little trimming and embellishment.
Isn’t that a clever card design? I love how I was able to use the palm tree dies to create an embellishment and then overlap it on the trimmed down face of the card.
