Take the Very Vanilla insert, score, cut, fold & burnish with bone folder as per diagram & add to inside of card base with multipurpose glue.
Stamp a leaf in bottom right hand corner of insert with Memento Ink, using the Memento stamp 4 frangipani flowers on Very Vanilla. Colour the leaf with Old Olive blends & frangipani’s with Daffodil Delight light & dark blends(leaving some uncoloured on the outer petals) cut out frangipani’s with matching die & set aside
From the Old Olive scraps using the small leaf die, cut out 4 & using the 3 flowers die cut out one set in Crushed Curry scraps, set aside, from Very Vanilla cut out large stitched rectangle die.

Stamp sentiment in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla 14/16” piece & add to card with multipurpose glue
Do a dry fit of pineapple so the spike fits on Very Vanilla die cut to make sure it will fit ok , then with daffodil Delight ink sponge a little behind bottom of pineapple & with multipurpose glue stick it in place, add spike with mini dimensionals
Add frangipani to front of card with mini glue dots to two that sit on sentiment & multipurpose glue to two petals that’s sit on card/pineapple, now with multipurpose glue add two flowers & one small leaf to front left of pineapple, not too much, just a few small dots.
