Sweet Cherries Card

Today’s featured card is just a sweet little note card that can be used for any occasion.  If my Grandma Jay were still alive, this is the kind of “any day” card I would send her.  I have a lifetime collection of letters and cards we exchanged over the years and it was bittersweet when I received the box of handmade cards I’d mailed her.  I’m happy she saved them, but never imagined they would come back to me.  Grandma was very special to me, and I miss her.  Recently I found a card I’d written in 2004 that I never sent her; another card and stamped envelope I had started; and a shrinky dink card charm I made that said “I (heart) Gramma Jay.”

This card used the really fun geometric Elemental paper from Close to My Heart; some coordinating ribbon, stamps, red buttons and I cut out the stamped area on my Cricut with my Art Philosophy cartridge.  I love how it cut perfect slots for the ribbon to pass through.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
