Grapefruit Grove Week 2

Hello and welcome to Week 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge. This week the colour combination is: Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Night of Navy.

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Share Sunshine PDF for this card so there is actually no stamping involved! This PDF is a digital stamp set and all proceeds go to organisations supporting the COVID-19 response. To find out more or buy yours, click here.

Although I have produced this card for a specific colour challenge, you could create this card in any colour scheme you want! The same sentiment is available in the PDF in other colours.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then used one of the large Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out pieces of Grapefruit Grove and Poppy Parade DSP.

These pieces of DSP are adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Having printed out the digital stamp set, I cut out the two sections of the sentiment using the appropriate Stitched Rectangle Dies. Each of these was layered onto a larger piece of Night of Navy cardstock (also cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

The toilet roll and martini glass images were fussy cut from the printed digital stamp set and adhered to the sentiment pieces.

The final touch is provided by a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

What do you think?

I hope you have enjoyed this light-hearted project! We should all take every opportunity to make someone smile in these difficult times.
