I’ve had this idea in my head for awhile, so I had to try it out as soon I got my Tart & Tangy set and the new Summer Picnic DSP. I don’t normally frequent the card section in stores, but I happened to be in Target one day and saw a card that inspired this one. The Target card had cherries all over the front, and the cherries were cut-out circles. It was monochromatic with a lighter color in the background for the cherry.
For my card, I cut 3 1 ¾” squares from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the cherry in Old Olive (I just stamped the whole thing in Olive since I wouldn’t be using the cherry part of the stamp). I then punched the cherries out with a ½” circle punch. The punch is slightly larger than the cherry, but the handheld punch is too small and the ½” circle accomplished my goal. Finally, the squares were adhered to a piece of Real Red cardstock with dimensionals to make the “window”.
To finish the card, I added a couple of different patterns from the Summer Picnic DSP and stamped Warm Wishes in Old Olive. The Old Olive poly-twill ribbon was tied through one of the punched out cherries.
