Welcome Pineapple card with Quick Quotes

Today I am playing with my new Sizzix Pineapple fold a long die.  I had so much fun playing with this tropical beauty. It took quite a bit of die cutting for all the panels and decoration but well worth it for the finished product. 

Here is a view from the front while closed.

On the back you can see I added some The Robyn's Nest Sun Shower Tear Drops acrylic gems.  I won these on a blog or part of a hop some where along the way.  I shared them with some crop buddies back in October when I first got them.  This is the second project on which I have used my winnings.  The first was a canvas for my son.

I used a button on one side and a large heart brad on the other along with floss to create the closure for my card.  I made several of the small layered flowers. It was a great way to use up the pretty printed Quick Quotes paper scraps.

 I stamped and die cut a sentiment for the inside.  I then layered that on the oval die that was part of the set.  I sprinkled more gems and added a tiny die cut heart to help keep the oval panel in place.

The back fully extended.  I cut a dozen leaf sections to cover both the front and back sides of the card.  I also fully decorated the back with the matching oval dies.I split the two side panels down the center for an easier fold.
