Cherry Pickin'


This card was made with a quick template you could use with most any image and color combination you'd like:


The card is a standard size 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" sheet of card stock folded to 5-1/2" x 4-1/4", in landscape orientation (meaning the long side is from left to right, and the fold is on the top). The light blue panel (on the template) is 2-3/4" wide by 4" tall. The white panel is 3" square, with a 2-3/4" x 1-1/2" piece of patterned paper on top. The medallion was made by layering a 1-3/8" Circle punched image onto a Scallop Circle punched piece. I used 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon on my card where the dark blue strip is shown on the template, but you could use 5/8" ribbon, or a 1/2" strip of coordinating card stock.

You could certainly take more time and add more embellishments, like eyelets or brads, or some paper piercing around the edges of the panels, but you can whip out 10 of these cards easily within an hour by keeping them simple. And limiting your 3-D embellishments will make these easier to mail without extra postage, or concern over "snagging" and damage in transit.
