Cherry Card

Well yesterday was the first day in quite a while that I did not post a  handmade card.  My sister and I canned three bushels of peaches so it was a pretty busy day.  By the time I got home I was so tired and did not have any cards or ideas going on  so I decided to take a day off.  The day before my family went and picked cherries so that is where the inspiration for today’s card came from.  I love to eat fresh cherries.  For every one that goes in the bucket you have to eat one.  Lol.  So this card is pretty simple.  I have this big cherry stamp.  I used my Stampin Up markers to color it.  Next I layered the cherries with real red paper and put 3 glorious green eyelets in the 2 corners.  The stamp on the bottom is embossed.  I know that I have told you this before but I love glitter and sparkle so I just bought  this glittery stuff called Stickles.  I colored the cherries with the red  Stickles for some shine.  So I  spent some time in  my craft room today and have come up with some new cards and ideas so I will be posting again soon.  Have a great night.

  1. I think this is a great card, Mik! Great use of white space and the black against the red is brilliant with it!
