The Pineapple….many see it as a fruit, some see it as tropical, and others see it as a sign of hospitality and friendship. Did you know that the pineapple is a symbol of warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality?? It makes it even more fabulous for a hand-stamped card or any home decor piece!
For this card, I started with a Whisper White card base and added a of Pop of Pink Designer Paper to the top (4-1/4″ x 1-1/2″) and bottom (4-1/4″ x 2″). By splitting it up, you don’t have to waste Designer Paper on your card when it will be covered! Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ and stamped the pineapple from the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set in Melon Mambo (center) and then in Pink Pirouette on either side. I added Snail Adhesive along the top and bottom of this piece and placed a small piece of Gold Foil Paper on the top and bottom. This is a great way to use your scraps or just a smaller piece. My Gold Foil pieces are only 3/4″ wide rather than 2-3/4″ if I did the entire back of the Whisper White piece. I placed this piece onto my card front between the two pieces of Designer Paper (filling that gap)! I stamped the Thank You greeting from the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set onto scrap white paper in Basic Black….then I fussy cut it out! It wasn’t the most fun thing to cut out but it was small and quick! 🙂 I added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! To finish off the card, I ripped a little bit of the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape and added it above the pineapples. I love the little gold bling and added texture!
I love the Pop of Pink Suite and those little pineapples are so fitting for a thank you card! I love it! Are you loving the Pop of Pink Suite or do you prefer one of the other suites? Let me know your favorite in the comments below!
