Happy Birthday Embossed Cherries

DSP Cherry On Top - Embossed Cherries

When I think of summer cherries come to mind.  Cherries season is in full swing and I had fun creating this adorable pair of embossed cherries.  When I look at this card it makes me want to head to the fridge and munch some yummy cherries……mmmmmmmmm.  Lol!

CARD BASE:  Basic Black topped with two rectangle layers in Watermelon Wonder (one of the new In Colors for 2015-17) and the Cherry Print from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  (TIP:  If your card base color is dark cut a piece of coordinating lighter cardstock to place on the inside so you can see your stamped sentiment or written note.)

FOCAL POINT:  Well. they are the cherries of course.  Lol!  I started with two layered circles in Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White, popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next I die cut two of the larger Petal Shapes (Watermelon Wonder) and one of the larger Leaf Shapes (Cucumber Crush) from the Bouquet BigzL Die.  I rounded the petals shapes to look like cherries and then heat embossed with VersaMark and clear embossing powder.  Then I punched two sprigs from the Bird Builder Punch in Cucumber Crush as well, trimming away the leaves.  I sponged the leaves and sprigs with Cucumber Crush in to give more depth.  Finally, I glued the sprigs and leaves and then popped the “Cherries” with Dimensionals.

SENTIMENT:  This design could be used for most any occasion.  I chose Happy Birthday.  First I stamped, on a narrow Whisper White strip, in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and a second time slightly off-set in Real Red ink.  I was going for a dimensional shadow look.  It’s not exactly what I was expecting but hey, I’m okay with it.  Lol!  To add more dimension I placed two stacked dimensionals in the middle of the banner and used a glue dot on either end to give a flowing banner look.
