Pineapple birthday card

Posted by

The other night I shared a card where on the envelope I had added lawn fawn pineapples… well I didn’t put the stamp set away and created this card using the same stamp set and used colours inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge…

I used some paints to create the background just using a brayer to move the paint around a bit. This gives it a graphic type of look. I did add lime and a darker blue into my card (as a shade of green) but still think it is in keeping with the colour challenge.

I then stamped and embossed the pineapples down the one side.

Next I added a piece of patterned paper as a layer underneath and stamped the sentiment.

I then thought the card blank needed something too so added the splotchy stamp using Distress oxide in two colours to add a panel of colour.

Finished off with lots of wink of Stella on the pineapples and some … yes you’ve guessed it … black enamel accents!

I also stamped a pineapple and some colour on the envelope … just to finish off that too of course!

Happy crafting!
