Pineapples can wear glasses..
Today's card is very bright and fun.
I made it for a friend's 40th and it made me smile, as she is a bright, fun kinda girl.
I decided that I would be making her a Pineapple with Glasses card, no idea why, I just did.
I embossed the pineapple parts (Concord &9th dies) using a great basketweave folder that was a gift from JT, handily when I went to get the glasses die, there were already a bunch of them die-cut and ready to go - in bright green?!
I used a pineapple embossing folder to liven up the background, I love this folder, it is by Paper Source and was a sale bargain and is NBUS, so it means I can join in with Darnell's latest NBUS Challenge..
I recently got a set of Ken Oliver Color Burst watercolour powders..my first few tests were not that impressive, but they make great frames! I die-cut this one using MFT scalloped stitched rectangle frame dies - I love these dies.
Final touch was the sentiment, I used a Dymo handheld embossing label maker (dirt cheap and handy). I thought the look that you get with these embossed tapes suited the off the wall feel of the card.
I hope my friend likes it, it made me smile a lot.
