Aloha Pineapple


I wish I had taken a picture of this pineapple before cutting into it, because it looked exactly like my card. You’ll have to take my word for it!


In The Tropics Dies are perfect for making this paper pineapple. I simply cut the top from Forever Greenery Designer Paper. The die comes with little cuts, so you can push out the paper, making it 3D.

I spent a little more time with the bottom of the pineapple, sponging Granny Apple Green Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Next, I stamped a pattern from the Textured Essentials Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on top of it.  Finally, I used the pineapple die for cutting, and voila, or “aloha,” you have a delicious paper pineapple.


The pineapple needed to sit someplace, so I used an Ornate Layers Die to cut a shelf from Garden Green Cardstock. And, I wrote “aloha” with another die that’s part of the In The Tropics set.


I’m not sure what the two white boards are doing, but aren’t they cute? They are part of the Fusion sketch. And, you can see the theme is fruit.


I used two embossing folders (Tasteful Textile and Greenery) with the two smallest Stitched Rectangles Dies to give the boards character.

My “still life” was completed by gluing everything on a Thick Whisper White card base.

Now I’m going to eat some pineapple. Yum!
