...With a Cherry On Top!

Happy Friday, Stampers!

Yay... the weekend is almost here!  I'll be stamping the weekend away and hope you'll find some time to stamp too!  Sale-a-bration is still with us and I'm definitely Sale-a-brating!  If you haven't received some free product from Stampin'Up! yet, I can help you with that.  Just give me a call or send me an email (contact info is shown on my blog "header") and I'll help you figure out what to order so that you, too, can receive a free item with your $50 order.

The card I have to show you today is one that you could easily make in quantity and have ready for upcoming birthdays.  This one is suitable for everyone--men, women, and children.  How often can you say that about a card?  And it is simple, too, which means it goes together quickly.  Check it out...

OK, I have to admit that if I was planning on making this for a guy, I'd leave off the organdy bow and probably substitute some Lucky Limeaid baker's twine (125572).  Also, I might just give the cherries a coating of Crystal Effects (101055) to make them shine instead of the red glitter paper.  But other than that, this design and colors would work for everyone.  And I love the greeting "Happy Birthday with a cherry on top!"
Notice that this card doesn't use the Big Shot, although it could.  I think the Lucky Limeaid panel would look nice embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, but I was deliberately trying to keep this card quick and simple.

Here's a list of what I used:

122737   Button Buddies
120528   A Word for You

123002   In-color Marker Assortment (I used the Lucky Limeaid to color directly on the stems)
100052   Real Red Marker (to color the cherries)
101179   Basic Black Stamp Pad

100730  Whisper White card stock
122926   Lucky Limeaid card stock
102482   Real Red card stock
117155   Designer Paper Stack, Brights (for the Real Red polka dotted paper)

Lucky Limeaid 1/8" Organdy ribbon (this is part of an accessory package, including two rolls of ribbon ---one Lucky Limeaid, the other Calypso Coral--- plus 30 printed brads that is a FREE Sale-a-bration item)
124005   Red Glimmer Paper
119873   3/4 inch Circle Punch
104430   Dimensionals
I'll be at Polar Bear Yogurt in Sherwood on Wednesday, March 28th at 11:30 with this cute card!  You can join me for only $5.00 and that includes a small yogurt ($3.00), so the two cards with envelopes are only $2.00... that's practically a give-away! Send me a quick email if you'd like to attend.  I'll show you the second card when I return on Monday.  Meanwhile, have a wonderful weekend!  Don't forget to give yourself a little break from the weekend routine and stamp something pretty! 
Thanks for stopping by today!
