Happy Day Pineapple Card

The good thing about having to stay off your feet to let them heal is that you can sit in the craftroom and create more. I decided to take a break from Christmas cards to make several summer cards, especially from the retired CTMH Calypso papier pack. My son and his family are going to a Florida beach on vacation next month. Here's one card I'll give to them because they talked about how much pineapple was served in their buffet meals.

This card required no stamping, just Cricut cuts and a sticker sentiment., perfect for the  Unstampabelles challenge, which also asked us to make a fancy border or frame. I put two Cricut cut frames together to make this one. I was also inspired to use pineapple patterned paper and Cricut cut when I saw the challenge at City Crafter for Pineapples:

The kraft frame had a solid center and lighter mat on top so I selected and ungrouped the two layers then sliced so the smaller mat shape became a cutout. Then I was able to add the leafy frame under it. I cut the pineapple with a yellow and a green base so I could make the leaves a different color. I inked the yellow leaf outline with Sweet Leaf. I cut up and stacked the layers with the appropriate colors.

Thank you for visiting! May you be blessed as you create cards to bless others!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Isaiah 58:7-8 (WEB)
7 Isn’t it to distribute your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor who are cast out to your house? When you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you not hide yourself from your own flesh? 8 Then your light shall break forth as the morning, and your healing shall spring forth speedily; and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of Yahweh shall be your rear guard.
