Cherries on Top

I made this card a while back for Kathy Boxdorfer’s birthday.  I used Real Red cardstock and ribbon.  I tucked away the design to use for a later stamp camp.  When I pulled it out again for my June camp, it dawned on me that I should be using Cherry Cobbler for cherries.  So with a slight modification, here is the outcome.

I saw this card on the Stamping Connection under Penny Thomas’s “Likes.”  Yes, I have a tendency to stalk everyone.  The concept that drew me to this card was the use of the Scallop Trim Border and Corner Punch.  Lisa Foster gave Penny the dimensions for the design which I will also share with you. 

Tip:  It is essential that you use the Scallop Trim Border punch upside down to make sure your pattern is even.  I went through quite a bit of scrap paper before I figured this out.

Dimensions of the square for the scalloped edge & corner piece:
Early Espresso cut 3 5/16 (Square) Punch corners first:)
Cherry Cobbler layer is 2 11/16
Very Vanilla is 2 5/16


Stamps: Cherish Friendships, A Word for You (inside)

Papers: Very Vanilla Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Regal DSP pack.

Inks: Stazon Blk, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso,

Accessories: Blender Pen, Scallop Trim Corner and Border punches, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Antique Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, sponges.
