I haven't used a drapery fold on a card in a while, and when I saw what fellow Demo, Lisa Fleming did with it and I had to use her design. It reminds me of the tropical print, ratan furniture that was popular in the 80's. I sure did love it then.

This new embossing folder is so elegant and pretty. It's one of the 3D Dynamic folders, which means it's got even more depth and dimension. I wish a scan or photograph would do it justice.
Tropical Chic was another one of my top three bundles in the new catalog. At first glance you might think that the cut out fern die and the detailed fern die might nestle into one another for cutting. You can do that, but there are some other fun ways to use these Thinlit dies. On the card below, I cut out the detailed fern and leaf for a great look. Then I stamped the same images on a lighter color cardstock and cut them out with the outline style die. If you look at the examples below, you can see the two coordinating dies cut out in different colors and then layered together for another fun look. In class last week, one of the girls even used a dimensional to pop up the inside portion of a leaf.

I'm still tagging it! lol There's just something about the combination of wood and roses that really appeal to me. Rustic and traditional beauty are so romantic! We recently attended a barn wedding where there was lots of wood, burlap and flowers. Soooo pretty, except June in South Carolina is very HOT for an outdoor wedding with no AC.
