Layer 1 - Using the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder run through a Die cutting machine. Then adhere to the card front along the bottom edge.
Layer 2 - Using the In the Tropics Dies cut out the detailed pineapple. Then adhere to the card front layering onto Layer 1 at an angle towards the right of the card. (Make sure you leave enough room for Layer 3 to fit)
Layer 3 - Using the In the Tropic Dies cut out the top of the pineapple. Adhere to the card front just touching pineapple bottom and angled to the right upper corner of the card. (Make sure to fold back leaves before applying adhesive)
Layer 4 - Stamp the following onto this sheet in the Saddle Brown Staz-on ink making sure to leave enough room between each image so you can cut out with the Dies.
1. Large flower
2. Small Flower
3. 2 leaves
Layer 4 cont'd - Color in the flower with water color pencils with darkest colors towards the centers. I used Real Red, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves and center of the large flower.
Layer 4 cont'd - Note: on the leaves I put more pressure when I drew in the veins of the leaves.
Layer 4 cont'd - Then using an Aqua Painter blend the colors together. (Tip: You want the tip of the aqua painter to be damp but not soaking wet). Set aside to dry, once its dry use the In Tropic Dies to cut out the flower and leaves and the Stitched Shapes oval die to cut out the sentiment.
Layer 4 cont'd - Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card front layering over the pineapple. I only popped up the large flower. Next cut about a 3" piece of the Braided Burlap ribbon and adhere to the card front as shown using Tear and Tape adhesive. Fray edges. Now using Stampin Dimensionals adhere the sentiment over the ribbon.
Layer 5 - Stamp the sentiment in Saddle Brown Staz- on ink then adhere to the inside of the card.
Color three of the Rhinestone jewels with the Soft Suede Stampin Blend then add to the card front as shown.
