Mouthwatering Cherries in a Stampin' Up! Sweet Shop!

Today's card hides a surprise!  I needed to make a birthday card for the daughter of our lovely friends, Ian & Andrea, and wanted it to hold a gift card as well.  I had a phone call yesterday from J saying she loved the card and the contents so I am safe to show you!


The base card is made from a piece of 12 x 12" textured Calypso Coral card cut at 5 1/2 " and scored using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool at 4", 6" and 8".  

The Cherry image from the Mouthwatering Stamp Set was coloured using Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers and stamped onto Whisper White card. The image was cut out using a Labels Collection Framelit Die.  A mat was cut from a piece of Calypso Coral using the next sized die.  How yummy are the Sweet Shop Designer Series papers?  I used two of the designs and matted them onto Soft Suede and Pool Party card before attaching to the main card.  The Sentiment is from Party This Way and was stamped in Soft Suede ink, punched using Word Window Punch and matted onto a Modern Label punch in Calypso Coral.



Sticky Strip was used secure the card together to make the pocket for the gift card. The slot was created using the Word Window and 3/4" Circle Punches. Two pieces of the Soft Suede 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon were secured inside the card using more sticky strip and the ends covered using the cherry paper from the Sweet Shop DSP.  The ribbon was tied in a bow to close the card.
