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.
