I had so much working with this image from Sailing Pineapple!  The challenge was to use newsprint or words.  I was trained in visual merchandising that all elements of the scene had to make sense…no geese in a tropical setting!  So, I worked to ensure that the words would make sense from a thematic standpoint.  I think the words on the paper help give the “pearls” and old fashion feel that plays off the image.


  1. Card Base:  Medium Yellow card stock, A2.  Opposite corners chomped.
  2. First Layer:  Paper House Retro Kitchen.  Opposite corners chomped.
  3. Image:  A Pearl For M.E. Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, colored with Copic markers.  The layer under this medium red card stock.  Chomped on opposite corners.
  4. Pearl Necklace:  Cut from DCWV Once Upon a Time, using a modified Silhouette file.  There are three matte dots to mimic pearls and a ribbon at the top to further mimic an old-fashioned pearl necklace closure.
