I’m still in a Tutti-Frutti state-of-mind.  It’s been cloudy for the last few days so I manufactured a bit of sunshine with this Tutti-Frutti Thinking of You Card.  A nice card to send to friends and family.

Tutti-Frutti Thinking of You card by Stampin' With Pixie made using Stampin' Up! Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper and Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes. The card is decorated with multiple coordinating mixed-size layers of DSP and cardstock featuring citrus fruits. A center starburst medallion has the sentiment "Thinking Of You" from the Lots to Love stamp set on it.

Mix & Match Border Sizes

Mix up the border sizes and colors on your cards.  It adds interest and draws the eye.  It’s also a good excuse to play with different cardstock colors and Designer Series Paper (DSP) designs.  Sort of like playing with crayons.  Stampin’ Up! double-sided DSP and coordinating cardstock colors are designed to make mixing fun and stress-free.  For this card, even though the power-packed 6″x6″ Tutti-Frutti DSP coordinates with a lot of Stampin’ Up! colors I stepped outside of the box and used Calypso Coral cardstock to mat the top layer.  That’s the thing with Stampin’ Up! products – you can JUMP out of the box and just have fun!

Use Tools

Stampin’ Up! dies and punches are wonderful tools.  They’re designed to help you be the most creative you.  For example in the Tutti-Frutti Thinking of You Card, the Starburst Punch and the Layering Circle Framelits work together to create the sentiment medallion on the card front.  Notice how the lovely Lots To Love sentiment fits perfectly in one of the Layering Circle Framelits dies?  Magic!
