You guys know I love my cherries! About a month ago I wanted to make something and couldn't think of what to make and looked up a "map" on Pagemaps.com to use. I used the Stampin Up Tart N Tangy cherry stamp. If you are one of my facebook friends you probably recognize the card since I did add a picture there after I made it. But just pretend this is the first time you are seeing it!
The paper is Stampin Up but I can't remember the name of the paper off hand, or on hand either! I know I have been sitting on this paper for awhile and afraid to use it because....yeah, the same ol reason! If I use it I won't have it anymore! *okie thinks papercrafters can be an odd lot at times*
I used a scallop edge punch on the green paper, I believe it is the Fiskars Apron punch or something like that.
I used a 2 3/8" and 2" scallop circle punch to punch blue paper for the double layer look. I also punched a piece of cardstock to put in the middle to add extra pop to the image. I believe the cherries were punched with a 1 3/4" circle punch.
Here on the close up of the cherries you can see the glitter a bit better. I used the Quickie Glue pen to fill in the area and then sprinkled with Doodlebug glitter. Oh the cherries were colored with Stampin Up Real Red and Old Olive. I dotted around the circle with the black Stampin Up marker.
You can also see the double layer of ribbon I used and I think both ribbons worked well with the card.
I did something on the sentiment I rarely do...I wrote it by hand! *okie gasps* I can't stand my handwriting and I would venture to say I have the absolute worst handwriting in the world. Oh sure I can make it presentable if I take my time, but I don't want to take my time!
I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to add the sentiment to the front of the card. I won the Tiny Attacher at the last Swarm I went to in Norman and I was really excited to win it! Of course Tim Holtz excites me...er, I mean anything from the Tim Holtz products line, yeah that's what I mean!
