Sweet Cherry Card

Hello and Happy Monday everyone!  I had a great first day back with my students today!  They were so excited to be back (they felt as if it had been months) and they coudn't wait to show off their new clothes, shoes, etc. from Christmas!  :)  They were also very good considering they'd been out of the loop for 3 weeks...  They fell right back into the rules and routines (and, of course, super-fun learning)!  Hee hee...  Here is a card that I made for a few challenges.  I would give this card away as a "thank you" card or as a "just because" card.  One of the challenges was to keep it CAS (clean and simple), which can be tough for me.  I resisted to urge to start adding twine and Stickles!  :)

Made Especially for You- machine embossing
My Craft Spot- include a delicious treat (I love cherries)
CAS-ual Fridays- use chipboard
Frosted Designs- cardstock only, no patterned paper
Little Red Wagon- yellow, polka dot





This is a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" square card
Country Life- cherries cut at 2.53"
Mini Monograms- scalloped circle cut at 3.47", yellow circle cut at 3.67"
Cuttlebug- argyle, polka dots
The Paper Studio- chipboard letters
Glossy Accents
Foam tape

*I cut a solid scalloped circle and then used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes around the edge to give it a little something extra.

Hope you had a great Monday!  See you soon...  :)

So sweet! I LOVE the yellow (reminds me of Sunshine and summer, which I need today in the midst of our snow!), and the embossing is perfect. You took CAS and made it gorgeous Amy! :)

I love how cheery this is! I've been thinking the past week or so that I *really* want to make a spring-y or summery card. This makes me want to even more. Gorgeous embossing, which makes it hardly seem like it's merely cardstock throughout. :o) Lovely! (So happy you're back, by the way!)

Hugs and blessings!
