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
