Bright and happy with a Cherry on top is the theme of today’s card. I have mixed fun designer paper with the Sweetest Cherry Bundle for you. It is definitely a Smile card!
I have to begin with the papers used on this card. The DSP is so pretty and seems like confetti raining down to me. This sheet is from the Flowers & More Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog Host Rewards. I love all of the colors. And even though they do not totally match the cherry’s colors, they are all bright. For this card, that is all that matters.
But that is not the star of the show. I have a close up of the cherry for you. It is definitely the star! I am not sure where the idea came from, but I used the In Color Glimmer paper for the cherry and the leaves. That is the best idea I have had in quite a while. Here is the close up…..
The glimmer is just enough to add a perfect shade to the Sweet Sorbet red for the cherry. And the Parakeet Party is equally as bright for the leaves. A perfect pairing in my book. Plus the little strip of the Parakeet Party gives just a bit more glimmer and ties the DSP and White piece together perfectly.
Stamps and Punches
The sentiment is from the Sweetest Cherry stamp set. I stamped it using both of the cherry colors, Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party. The brightness almost makes you think they are embossed.
The Cherry punch used is part of the Sweetest Cherry Bundle. Because of using the Glimmer Paper I did not stamp the cherry. I did however add a layer of vellum behind the cherry just as something for it to hang on to. That is punched using the Decorative Circle Punch. For the final touch, I added one single Pearl to the cherry for the extra bit of highlight it deserves.
