Pineapple Paper Clearance

We have this beautiful Pineapple paper (and DL envelopes) on clearance at the moment and while they are mainly used for invitations, we asked Peta to see what else she could do with them. She came up with these beautiful cards for Mothers Day. 

This is what she had to say about the paper :"I really wanted to see if the pineapple paper could be die cut. I wasn't sure as it is a fibrous paper, yet lovely and soft and was pleasantly surprised to see that it cut and embossed cleanly - no stray bits. I have an original Cuttlebug, so to be safe I did do two passes the first time, but then checked and it still cut cleanly on one pass through the machine. On the first card, I simply used a stylus and foam pad to create the leaf veins and the rounded tips on the petals. I also used white stamens and Ivory Jute ribbon. The second card I embossed the butterfly through the Cuttlebug. The flower on the second card was made with white petals spritzed with Glimmer Mist and Yellow stamens (stamens used for feelers on the butterfly also)."
