I love the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack! I admit at first look I thought NO, but the back sides of the paper are fantastic. I love small little designs and I love the colors in the pack. Today I am using the pineapple paper. I do love the colors together on this side of the paper although it's not one of the small designs. Here's my card.
Isn't it cute! I just love it!
The card base is Lemon Lime Twist cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4. There is a layer of Soft Suede measuring 3 3/4 x 5. The the pineapple paper layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. Before you attach the Soft Suede and pineapples layer, run some Linen Thread around the card about 2/3 down the layer. I ran it around 2 times and taped it so it would be behind my ovals.
Did you see my pineapple? I just got so excited while making it. I tried to copy the pineapples on the designer paper. Here's how I did it. The pineapple itself came from the Pretty Pines Thinlits. They are meant to be pine cones, but just turn it upside down! I love finding a new use for somthing I already have! The solid back of the pineapple is Soft Suede and the detailed top is Daffodil Delight. The leaves at the top of the pineapple are from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. There is a flower framelit with 5 petals on it. Cut one in Lemon Lime Twist and one in Garden Green. Trim off two of the petals and round them off at the bottom. Off set the two and add to the pineapple. Add a linen thread bow at the base of the leaves. Attach the pineapple with dimensionals to a Pool Party oval cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Make a Soft Suede scallop oval using the Layered Ovals Framellits. Use dimensionals to attach it to the base.
The welcome is from the Cozy Cottage stamp set. It's one of the Host Reward stamp sets available in the Occasions catalog. Stamp in Soft Suede on Whisper White and punch it out with the Classic Label Punch. Use dimensionals on the left and a little glue on the right.
The inside of the card has words from the Happy Celebrations stamp set. Stamp in soft Suede. Add a 1 inch strip of the stripe paper from the Tutti Frutti paper. That stripe is another favorite of mine! Cut out three pineapples from the designer paper and add to the strip. So cute!
I'm really proud of my card today. New neighbors? It would be a great card for them. You just might want to try the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack! by the way, my post yesterday used this paper, too. Just scroll down to see it.
