Aloha… it’s the princess’ 12th birthday

… and for my pineapple mad girl… a pineapple themed card!

I bought the Aloha stamp set with coordinating dies from Lawn Fawn just to make her a card and to decorate her invites to her party… and so I stamped a pattern with them using a mixture of black ink and embossing in silver and white glitter powder.

Then I went a little mad with tropical coloured greens and turquoise distress inks and smooshing.

I then used the Happy Celebrations stamps to create the greeting in the same way… and then a single pineapple die cut out too.

Then I went back in with the pine needles ink and added some colour to the leaves and to the Happy. Next I assembled and added plenty of wink of stella. I also added the glossy accents to the embellishment pineapple to add more texture.

I can’t believe my baby girl has turned 12… although given she is already taller than me… I sometimes wonder if she is actually a lot older!

As for the invites… I kept these more simple… six of these… I used the main pineapple image and coloured it with oxides and water before diecutting them. I also stamped and die cut the sunglasses and then added the pineapples to the cards with foam dimensionals. Then added the glasses and added a layer of glossy accents to the glasses.

I found the Let’s Party stamp in a magazine set and thought it worked well.

And so it’s time to celebrate … Happy birthday to my gorgeous girl who has always been super cute!

Happy crafting!
