Step 2:  Die cut a white and green layer from the nesting frames set
Step 3: Tape the stencil to the white die cut frame with removable tape
Step 4:  Use a 1/2" stencil brush to rouge a coat of yellow ink over the whole design, use 1/4" brushes to add more colors, remove and clean the stencil
Step 5:  Place the clean, dry stencil back over the colored image and use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Translucent Embossing Paste over the stencil, remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning, let the paste dry very thoroughly, it will dry with a clear, glossy finish
Step 6: Die cut a small white and green mat using the nesting frames set
Step 7:  Place the Welcome Baby stamp from the Animal Mobile set on an acrylic handle, mask the word Baby and ink only the Welcome with black ink, stamp on the small white frame
Step 8: Adhere the Welcome to the matching green mat, add a Mini Glue Dot at each end and sprinkle with Gold Micro Glitter
Step 9: Wrap  a yellow May Arts ribbon around the card front and tie a bow near the left edge
Step 10:  Adhere the Pineapple layer to the matching green mat and use foam tape to attach the pineapple and welcome to the card front
