Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #596 Timeless Tropical

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a sketch.


I changed the orientation of the sketch for my card with the Timeless Tropical bundle.  I love that pineapple!

CCMC#596 Timeless Tropical Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of the card is Old Olive measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is So Saffron cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  A layer of Soft Suede follows that measures 3 3/4 x 5.

I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper for my card.  The pineapple piece was perfect!  Cut three of the rectangles using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The one I used measures about 1 3/8 x 3 1/4.  I find it easier to glue the top and bottom rectangles and then add in the middle one.

Cut the parts of the pineapple using the In the Tropics Dies.  The top of the pineapple was cut from the Old Olive paper in the Tropical Oasis paper.  The bottom of the pineapple was cut from the Soft Suede designer paper from the same pack.  Sponge both of these in the same color.  Did you notice that the pineapple top has cut outs that can be curled out to add dimension to the card?

I used a piece of the Crushed Curry stripe paper from the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper for another layer of the pineapple bottom.  Trace around the pineapple shape on the paper and cut.  I sponged this layer to tone it down just a little.  I crinkled the top layer into a ball in my hand and then carefully pulled it back out.  Add this layer to the pineapple base paper using glue dots here and there.  If needed trim any parts of the base that sticks out.

Add the parts of the pineapple to the card with dimensionals.  It's so cute!

Add a bow made from the So Saffron twine from the Sale-a-Bration free pick Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins Combo Pack.  Use a glue dot!

The saying is from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive and a Whisper White strip.  Trim the ends.  The left side is on dimensionals and the right is attached to the pineapple with glue.

Complete the card with some Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

CCMC#596 Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, stamp a row of pineapples along the bottom of the card in So Saffron.  Start in the middle and work your way to each side.  The saying is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive.
