How to Craft Fabulous Pineapple Crush Cards
Cards. Cards. Cards. I continue to love card making. It was my first intro into this awesome paper world. And I continue to enjoy the making and sending of cards even today.
Cards are compact. Quick. And super fun when made in assembly line fashion.
It’s a good thing for me to have a stash of cards on the ready to send out when the need or heart inspires.
These cards I am sharing here today include several things:
* they are all made using Heidi’s very fun Pineapple Crush Collection
* they include Heidi’s Mother’s Day Cutting files for the sentiment
* the base is white card stock that has been embossed with a dot folder
* each card has pops of color from the Pineapple Crush pattern paper
* i call these cards a variation on a theme
To play along with me and this video you may want to grab a few supplies:
I will explain the card base in the video, but let me give you some tips here:
cut a piece of white cardstock to 10-inches x 5-inches.
folder emboss one half of the card if desired (I do not mention this in the video)
score card base at 5-inches so that the card can be folded in half
at the embossed end, trim off 1-inch
on the opposite end of the embossed side, score card at 3/4-inches and fold.
Now that the card base is created, we can just have fun layering Pineapple Crush embellishments and stamps.
See video for all the details::
Here are a few card making tips:
- assemble several cards at one time
- repeat the sketch for all the cards
- use one collection to keep things congruent
- cut large die cuts for sentiments
- hot glue to make sure all your elements stay where you adhere them
