Sweet Cherry Cobbler

Debra Burgin Sweet Cherry CobblerI have a feeling that Cherry Cobbler is one of Stampin’ Up!’s most popular colors.  I know my customers order it like crazy!  It’s incredibly rich and deep; I don’t think I’ve disliked anything I’ve made with it.

I started to create a card based on my monthly challenge (in November’s newsletter), but it didn’t end up that way.  You may recognize the two matching squares as scraps from my ghosting project.  The VersaMark takes the Cherry Cobbler in such a way that it doesn’t really “match” any other SU! color, so I made an unconventional choice:  Blushing Bride.  The text on that square, from French Foliage, was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Stampin’ Emboss Clear powder.

I am so pleased with the bow — one of the few I’ve ever used on a card!  Since I often actually mail my cards, I avoid embellishments that will be too bulky or fussy.  But the Seam Binding ribbon is so light and fluid, this was no problem.  However, I didn’t tie this bow in the usual way.  I’ll have to show you my technique some time!
