For You Cherries Card

Hello crafty friends,
Today I am sharing my first of several cards showcasing this month’s stamp of the month set.
CTMH Cherry For You Tag Card Stamp of the Month
This set is only $5 with a purchase of $50 or more. Of course to sweeten the pot, I will be sharing several free cutting files with you if you purchase the stamp set through my link.

Here’s a look at the complete project. I started by cutting out the base in some kraft cardstock. I then turned to my hopscotch papers from Close To My Heart. I used some red, white, green and brown cardstock to cut out the other elements.

Here’s a closer look at the cute little cherry die cuts I created.  I cut the top layer in some hopscotch patterned paper and then used some red cardstock for the bottom layers.  For the accents, I used a touch of my green stickles for the leaves and for the cherries I used some pink glitter gems from Close To My Heart. I did add some foam tape underneath the leaves and under the scalloped circle die cut to give them just a bit of lift.

Next I turned to my August Stamp of The Month set and stamped the frame with my Juniper Ink Pad and then followed up by stamping the sentiment with my Cranberry ink pad. For the top of the tag, I added some Pixie thick twine.
