Calypso Card #2

So here is Card #2 for our little tote, this time we are featuring the pineapple side of the paper.  I need to apologize for the photos, I just don't know why but for some reason this paper is really hard to photograph.  It is so much prettier in person.  Well here are the instructions for this one...

Calypso cut to 2 ½ x 4 ¾” (pineapple side, again this one would have looked better inked with pear ink like I did in subsequent cards)
White card base ( 4¼” x 5½”)
Canary cut to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”
White Daisy cut to 5” x 2 ¾”  and 1” x 3”
Pear cut to 1 ¼” x 3 ¼”
Color three of the Bitty Sparkles with the golden yellow marker and put next to sentiment 

Supplies: (in addition to listed below)
-         Big Hug stamp set (D1584)
-         Bitty Sparkles (Z1263)
-         ShinHan Marker – golden yellow (Z2462)
-         Canary Ink (Z2643)
Basic Supplies (additional supplies for individual projects will be listed with the bag or that card, please note several supplies are used on multiple cards, etc. )

- Calypso Paper  Packet (7210B) (I used 1 sheet of the pineapples on one side and the flamingo’s on the other and did half of the cards featuring each design.  I also used part of a sheet of the Blue B&T with speckles but I could have used blue cardstock there)
-1 sheet of 12 x 12 Canary Cardstock, 1 ½ sheets of Pixie Cardstock, 1 sheet of Pear Cardstock (or you could use the green B&T in the paper packet)
-1 sheet of White Daisy Cardstock
-White Value Pack cards and envelopes (X254) 

NOTE:  You could use the Calypso Paper Packet in lieu of any cardstock and make this whole project.  My issue is I hate to cover up a beautiful designed paper with another paper so I tend to use a lot of cardstock as bases.  If you were looking for a cost saver and wanted to use cardstock but didn’t want to purchase large packages of numerous colors you could easily purchase the Whimsy Cardstock  package which has 20 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock that would go great with the B&T papers (it is X5940).
