Hey Friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Dies Only Challenge. On my previous card featuring the Cactus Hillside Border, I used the frame from the Honeycomb Backdrop. I removed it carefully from the die, leaving all the leftover little bits stuck in place. I wanted to find a way to use up those pieces, so I built today’s card idea around that.

I started with the Cheery Cherries, and die cut the pieces I would need out of Lawn Fawn cardstock, then blended on Distress Oxide Inks to give them definition. For the cherries themselves, I used Guava Cardstock, then added Festive Berries, Candied Apple, and a tiny bit of Vintage Photo. Then I did a stem out of Chocolate Bar and blended on Vintage Photo, and two stems each out of Sage Leaf and Algae. I trimmed off only the leaves from these and blended on Evergreen Bough and Mowed Lawn.

Then I took some Speckled Eggshell cardstock and die cut it with the second largest Large Stitched Circle Stackable, and Barn Red cardstock cut with the second largest Scalloped Circle Stackable. I assembled the cherries, adding a green leaf over the brown one, then adhered them to the focal panel with the extra leaves underneath.

I created an A2 standard size card base from more Speckled Eggshell and added little dabs of glue to the back of the leftover Honeycomb Backdrop pieces that I wanted to use, then lined up my card base over top, flipped it over, and used a craft pick to release the pieces from the die. Then I popped the focal panel toward the top with foam tape.

For part of the sentiment, I white heat embossed it onto Chocolate Bar Cardstock and trimmed it down with an Everyday Sentiment Banner into two strips. The rest I die cut from more Guava Cardstock using Finley’s ABCs and added the same ink blending as I used on the cherries. I popped all of this up with foam tape as well.

To complete the card, I added two hearts from the Heart Garden Border cut from Guava Cardstock and blended with a touch of Festive Berries. Then finished with a bit of Stardust Stickles. If you’d like to see how it all came together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty. I really hope you enjoy it!

I hope this has inspired you to play along with our Dies Only Challenge! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much, Christy! I love this cheerful card!
