Hedgehog Cherry on Top Thank You Card

The card is a 5 x 7″ card 10″ high x 7″ wide scored at 5″.  I am using Cherry on Top paper from Stampin’ Up.  A lovely lady from Splitcoast Stampers named Pam,  offered to give me the Cherry on Top paper that I am using on this card as I didn’t have the paper but did have the matching washi tape and small flower embellishments. Thank you Pam, it was so nice of you to send this paper to me.   I used yellow paper as my base paper, then green that was 4 3/4 x 6 3/4″ and then used the cherry on top and cut a frame out of it using my paper trimmer and leaving a one inch border on the sides and a 1/2″ border on the bottom.  The outside dimensions were 4 1/2″ x 6 ” and I put the cherry on top frame on dimensionals .  I’m sorry I forgot to show how I cut the frame out.  I used my Koh I Noor set of water color pencils and a Dove blender pen (that you can get at Amazon) to liquefy my water color pencils. I used Canson XL watercolor paper that was 5 x 6″ and then cut it down in the end so it fit inside my frame. The stamp is a Hedgehog stamp by Penny Black. I used a MSE set of stamps called Tag Words and used a small tag stamp and used Summer Sun ink from Stampin’ Up and the word thanks from the same set, stamped with Rose Red Stampin’ Up ink.  I used red embroidery thread about 6″ and wet it so it would straighten out and made sure it didn’t unwind.  I cut out the tag and punched a small hole near the top and pushed the red twine through the hand of the hedgehog and through the tag then back through the hedgehog and attached the string to the back.   I took the matching washi tape and ran a strip on the inside of the card as well as on the envelope.  I hope you like this card, it was a lot of fun to make.
