Make It Monday: Pineapple Friendship Card

As a symbol of friendship and hospitality, the pineapple is such an interesting fruit with its unique colors and textures. Even though they are a bit messy to cut, I just love pineapples! For this week's Make It Monday, I thought I would share one of the cards in the Tropical Oasis Mini Retreat To Go. The Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper is retiring soon so be sure to stock up before it's gone.

The Tropical Oasis suite makes this a fun and easy card to make. 

To create a layered look with color variation, I adhered the die-cut pineapple to a piece of So Saffron cardstock and trimmed around it.

"Make It" Instructions
  1. Fold a 4-1/4” x 11” piece of Mango Melody cardstock in half for card base.
  2. Adhere a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of yellow-toned floral paper from Tropical Oasis DSP on card front.
  3. Die cut a large scalloped rectangle from Stitched So Sweetly dies (largest) with blue print paper from Tropical Oasis DSP. Adhere to center of card front.
  4. Die cut the following with In The Tropics dies…pineapple in Mango Melody cardstock, stalk in Old Olive cardstock.
  5. If desired, sponge Old Olive ink around edges of stalk.
  6. Adhere pineapple to a piece of So Saffron cardstock and trim around perimeter of pineapple to create a see-through accent.
  7. Adhere pineapple and stalk to blue print DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Stamp (Early Espresso ink) “Our friendship is timeless” sentiment from Timeless Tropical stamp set on a 1/2” x 4” strip of Whisper White cardstock. Snip ends at an angle.
  9. Adhere sentiment strip across pineapple with Stampin’ Dimensionals on each end.
  10. Make bow using 2 strands of Braided Burlap Trim and adhere to base of pineapple stalk with a Glue Dot.
