To Cheer You.......


How are my reader's today?  I hope the week is moving along well for you ..... can you believe it's already Thursday?

As promised I have a second Heartfelt Creations card to share today.  I've been having so much fun with these stamps and dies and today's card is a fancy fold that I have used before.  It kind of fit this image though so with a couple of small changes .... here it is:

To Cheer You –  5.5 x 5.75 inch card.

Stamps:  HCPC 3387 Luscious Cherry Swirls PreCut Set.
Dies:      Spellbinders Blossom and circles dies.

Other:   Small Spellbinder tags. Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copic Markers, Roman – Ivory, LSS White card (card base), DSP KaiserCraft – Tudor. American Craft Card – autumn range, red.  AnnaBelle Stamps Cherry Sprinkles, button, Lace, ribbon and linen thread from my stash.   Fiskars Sunburst border punch. Cuttlebug, PI die cutter for large circle base. Tapes and craft glue.


Cut 5-inch circle from white card and DSP adhere and fold in half.

Stamp bunch of cherries to ivory card, colour with Copic’s and die cut using a spellbinder circle die. Adhere Cherry Sprinkles.  Stamp a second set of cherries and colour the same way.  This set is cut out to loop through the ribbon. 
Cut a green mat from American Craft card one size large than image circle. Adhere to image circle.
Cut Blossom from red craft card and position the image and green mat to the centre with double-sided tape.
Trip a strip of red card 5.5 x 1.75”. Punch one long edge using a Fiskars Sunburst border punch.
Layer a layer of lace over the punched border and tie a narrow ribbon in a bow to the right hand side.
Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and cut it with a small tag die from Spellbinders.
Add the sentiment to the card base by threading linen thread through the sentiment and knot of the ribbon bow.  Add a small button and tie a bow over the top.
Using strong glue add the Blossom die cut image to the base of the card over the lace.
Add 5 Cherry Sprinkles around the base and loop the second set of cherries through the ribbon to the left side of the card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
