Miss Tracy celebrated her birthday recently and I had the pleasure of making her a birthday card. The card I made was inspired by a card I saw at the Doodlebug Design's booth at last year's ScrapFest.
I call this type of card "clutch style" because it reminds me of a clutch purse. I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to make this three fold card, making sure the top fold overlaps the bottom fold.
The black paper covered in cherries is Creative Imaginations, Caution Girls Collections "Red Cherries". I've had this paper for awhile and wasn't quite sure what I would do with it. I chose it for the top fold.
I then cut down the red paper for the bottom fold. I don't know the brand. The only description I found on the paper was "Holiday Circle Red", not that it matters anyway.
I decided to use accent paper to match the cherry stems. I picked a bright green textured card stock to place in the middle of the cherry paper. I liked the stripes on the ribbon and chose to line the green strip with it. I used my EK Success Dahlia Dimensional Flower Punch for the edge of the top fold. By the way, this punch also makes excellent flowers. And then, of course, my cute little cherry doodle-pop in the center.
I used a Studio G "Happy Birthday To You" stamp for the inside. Another Michael's special. ;p
This is the inspiration for my card. Adorable!
And here's the birthday girl, looking all cute!
Happy Birthday, Tracy! I hope your birthday was superfantabulous!
Hi Ho! Cherry-O,
