Pineapple pop up window birthday card

My darling girl had her 19th (!) birthday at the beginning of May so I thought you might like to see the card I made for her.

I was in my Timeless Tropical phase and feeling a bit nostalgic about Hawaii where we've spent a couple of her birthdays when I made it, as it has quite the tropical vibe... and a pineapple.

It's also a pop up window card like I made for my May Stamping Sisters Tutorial bundle project too. I love that it looks like a normal card when closed but see lots of different elements when open.

I'm still loving the sadly now retired Tropical Oasis paper pack. I hope you got some before it retired. Love this hibiscus and frangipani print. It has such a happy vibe.

The happy birthday sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.

I love the embossed look of the lovely pineapple die (from In the Tropics die set). I cut the top layer using a pineapple print paper, which added a multi-colour effect. I fussy cut a plain layer of card to insert between the dine cut pineapple bottom using the die as a guide.

Inside the panel that was in the window pops up and reveals the extra sentiments. Both of these are from Itty Bitty Birthdays - a good one to mix and match. I like that you can see the pineapple from both sides too.

I decorated the back of the card so we had lots of space to write a birthday message to our girl. My general rule for family cards is that I make them  and darling man writes them out, so we each contribute something.

If you love this tropical themed card, make sure you check out my other Timeless Tropical - Tropical Oasis cards too.
