Good Morning! It’s another cold winter day so I made a card with the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle to remind me of the warm tropics. I paired the fun sentiments and lush tropical foliage stamps with the die cut pineapple from the In The Tropics dies for a Hello card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of the Artfully Composed designer series paper to an Evening evergreen mat and popped it all on an Old Olive card base. I used snail in the middle of a panel of the beautiful Layering Designs vellum to adhere it to the card front (it will be covered by the pineapple). I die cut a panel of Just Jade with the leaf sprig die from the Tropical Layers dies in the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. The vellum gives me just enough contrast to prevent the die cut from fading into the DSP, and the die cut helps to tie the pineapple to the DSP (plus I love how leaving a few of the center leaves in makes the die cut casual).
I die cut the pineapple from the In The Tropics dies from Bumblebee and sponged Cinnamon Cider ink around the edges and points. I fussy cut a Bumblebee backing using the die cut and adhered the die cut to the front. I cut a panel of Old Olive with the pineapple top and sponged the edges with Evening Evergreen and curled the leaves with my fingers. I adhered the pineapple top to the card front with glue dots and popped the pineapple on top with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered cling stamp set in Versamark ink on an Evening Evergreen panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut the sentiment out with the Messages die and adhered it to the card front with glue dots (where it overlapped the pineapple) and dimensionals. I finished it with an Evening Evergreen iridescent jewel.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered stamp set in twice stamped off Evening Evergreen ink in the corners of a Basic White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Artfully Composed DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
A big pineapple against tropical foliage – this little hello is sure to warm you on the coldest winter day!
