A cherry hello (Seriously, LOVE this one!)

Okay, so I love this card! I so wish I could claim it as a Kim original, but I can't. I give full credit to Dawn Griffith (SU demo) for the technique, but of course I used different paper and a different stamp set, since I have no SU stuff. Check out her video tutorials on YouTube, or link to her blog on the right. She's fantastic! This is like a card and an envelope all smooshed into one. Of course, if you were going to mail it to somebody, it would need a real envelope. I found that a lighter weight paper (not cardstock) works best on this card, and I'm absolutely in love with every part of it! You probably can't see it in the pics, but the cherries are covered with Glossy Accents. This card screams summer get-together to me!

Here is the card with the top flap open.

Here is the left flap of the "envelope", which bears the sentiment "a cherry hello". I love this stamp set so hard!

Here is the inside of the card, revealing some more cute little cherries, and a place to write your message. Patterned paper is Making Memories, stamp set is Stampendous, Berrylicious cardstock from Bazzill, white cardstock is bulk, stamped with Staz-On, colored using the magic colored pencil technique (MCPT, aka Gamsol magic), Glossy Accents on big cherries. Thanks for looking!

You did it!! You have turned me into a stamper! I am totally there a 12-step program for stamp-a-holics? I've spent more money on stamps on ebay than my husband will ever know about. I also bought a scor-pal...I love it! Please teach another card class at pages in progress SOON!!

Thank you for "hooking me"....
