PALS HOP LINE-UP
TART & TANGY NOTE CARDS & PORTFOLIO
Tried and true Tart & Tangy is one of the many FREE sets available during Sale-A-Bration and I used it to make a retro-style set of note cards and matching portfolio.
Stampin' Write Markers were used to ink up the cherries image stamp to create an overall pattern on my Certainly Celery card stock. The portfolio's flap was enhanced with a double scalloped edge, courtesy of the Scallop Edge Punch. Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and a matching button from the Playground Designer Buttons were added to compliment the cheery cherries! A velcro dot added underneath the flap keeps the portfolio securely closed.
The note cards were quick and easy to make using my Sizzix Big Shot machine and the Scallop Square Stampin' Up! Clear Bigz die. Scalloped squares were cut from Whisper White card stock and adhered to larger squares of Real Red, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery to create matching note cards. Each card features a cherry cluster stamped using Stampin' Write Markers. This cheerful set would make a great gift for Valentine's Day or any gift-giving occasion!
CHEERY CHERRY TREAT BOX
Make treat boxes for any occasion using the Sizzix Big Shot and the Pillow Box Bigz Die! Although my box was made to match my note card set, you could certainly make it to give individually! The Big Shot makes quick work of cutting out one or several at a time! I used Real Red card stock for my box and added a scalloped circle punched from Certainly Celery to highlight my stamped cherries image. Matching Real Red Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon was added and tied in a simple knot. Fill your box with yummy chocolates, fun candy, small toys or even money!
