Pineapple for Pam

I made another birthday card this week and rather than choose a cake stamp or something with balloons, I decided to make another Pineapple birthday greeting.  Pineapples are sweet and a symbol of hospitality and those are two things that remind me of my friend Pam, whom I created this card for.

I used 3 new stamp sets to make this card.   I combined the Pineapple Stamp, The Pop of Paradise Stamp Set and the Confetti Celebration Stamp Set.  All three of these stamp sets will be available at the beginning of June when our new catalog is released.

This card is a moving card in which the front panel folds in half so that the focal point can stand up for display.   When the pineapple is standing the hidden sentiment from the Confetti Celebration Stamp set is revealed!

Pam and I had hoped to meet for lunch but both of us had crazy schedules last week.  It was funny because we actually met on the side of the road near her home, kind of on accident. because I was lost and she spotted me.  I was glad I was able to give Pam her already belated gift and card prior to my leaving for the Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation in the Mediterranean!   I will look forward to spending time with her when I get back home.  

Perhaps after lunch we should get together to stamp some more Pineapple inspired cards using all of these fabulous new products.
