Stampin' Up! Circle Sayings Celebrate

Sweetest Cherries Friend

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week we have a sketch challenge.  I had a lot of fun with this sketch.


When I saw the sketch I thought of the Sweetest Cherries set.  It is springtime and soon it will be cherry season, YUM!  


I used a Basic White Note Card for the card base.  These note cards come with envelopes and there are 20 of them in a pack. They are a great deal and perfect for quick card making.  The biggest question...are they mailable?  Yes, they are!  These note cards also come in Very Vanilla.  You can also get them in Kraft  card stock and those also come with a coordinating box.

The cherries were stamped in Real Red ink and punched out using the Cherry Builder punch.  The leaves were stamped in Old Olive ink with Pecan Pie veins and the stems are Pecan Pie ink on Pecan Pie CS.  Both the stems and the leaves were punched out using the Cherry Builder punch.  

The sketch has 2 strips so I used the Brights 6" x 6" DSP in Daffodil Delight.  I had a few strips leftover from another project and they made the perfect accents.  I added a few Pecan Pie Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the ends of the strips.

I stamped "friend" in Pecan Pie ink and fussy cut it out.  This is the rectangle in the sketch. 


I had another little Daffodil Delight strip so I added it to the inside of the card along with another cherry.  This is a cute and easy card to make with very minimal cutting.  

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team created for the challenge and thank you for stopping by!
