Fruiti-O--Keep It Simple! #9

Would someone please remind Mother Nature that tomorrow is the first day of SPRING?! We just had another 20cm of snow today (that's about 7"). Happy about more shoveling, I am NOT.

The challenge this week at Keep It Simple! is to include FRUIT on your project, in an attempt to hurry along the warmer weather. I certainly need the pick-me-up!

I've been following another of the Online Card Classes this week, too, entitled "Pattern Play." All kinds of design principles about scale, size, mixing, and altering are provided along with LOTS of inspiration, as always.

I'm also on a kick to use up some of my stash, so I found an older CTMH paper pack called (appropriately enough!) Cherry-O. I used three different patterns from that set, along with the coordinating stamp set. The giant scallop border is a Sizzix die; the scalloped circle frame is from Nestabilities. The card design is CASE'd from Kristina Werner. 
I feel a little happier just looking at those juicy cherries...

Happy crafting,



  1. How sweet! I love the cherries and the big tabs/scallops.

  2. Very nice card! I love this paper :) I've been playing along with Pattern play too - great class!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
