Here is a picture of my cherry themed Rolodex card for the Your Paper Pantry (YPP) February 2013 Rolodex swap. This was a bit of a challenge as I found a lot of strawberry, raspberry and apple stamps, themed paper and embellishments, but not much for the cherry. I found one cherry stamp at Hobby Lobby but no paper or embellishments. At this point I didn't want to take the time to track down the couple of paper packs that are out there that do have cherries. I ended up using some Shrinky Dink to get the job done.
The stickled cherries and the word cherry were cut from the Cricut Preserves cartridge. I used some white lace and a couple of white Prima flowers (a flower and a bud) tipped with the fired brick ink as well. There is a Tim Holtz round fastener to hold another Rolodex card with my information on it to the back.
I cut a Rolodex shape (the same size as the red Rolodex card) and a scalloped rectangle that measured approximately 2" x 1 1/2" from the Shrinky Dink. I punched a standard size hole in the corner of the scalloped piece so that I could use a brad to fasten it to the Rolodex card and it can be positioned on the brad. I added a red bing on the brad and in the other upper corner.. I used a journaling stamp and cherry stamp on the Shrinky Rolodex card and colored them before I heat shrank them. The Shrinky Rolodex card is on foam squares. The corners were punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch before being shrunk.
I think that was it. I had a lot of fun putting this together and working with the Shrinky Dink.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
