Hello You cherries card b

Recently I’ve been sharing some sneak peeks of products that will be available on September 1. But while the new Holiday catalog is almost upon us, let’s not forget that we still have another month of Summer.

Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush are such fun, summery colors. It isn’t surprising they’re used together so much, as in this sheet from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack, which has to be one of my favorites from all the Designer Series Papers in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

This card is really all about the paper, from the sweet little cherries, the Cucumber Crush tone on tone stripes, and the Watermelon Wonder & Whisper White stripes to the Whisper White and Cucumber Crush die cut words. The only other thing on the card (other than adhesive) is the Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim bow.

When I first saw it, I only ordered one roll just to see what it was like. I expected it to be stiff and crunchy and difficult to handle. I was so wrong! It’s soft and pliable and very easy to work with, but not so soft that it doesn’t hold its shape.

Here’s what I used:
