Pineapple Drink Father's Day Summer Card

Created this Father's Day card which is also perfect for Summer and just happens that Father's Day & the first day of Summer are on the same day. Used Cricut cartridge Life Is A Beach for the Pineapple Drink. The pineapple image does have cuts on the pineapple but I also used an embossing folder on the pineapple. Used some red ink on the cherry. Used some Glossy accents on the orange slice. Used an embossing folder for card orange layer.

Stamped 2 different sentiments.

Added some ribbon.
