Sweet Cherry card

 

Today's card is another one I made using the Cricut Explore and an SVG file I bought online. This week's Bitten By the Bug challenge called for a cricut cut that was altered. I thought and thought about what I should make. It occurred to me that I had not used my liquid glass in a while. One of the great things about liquid glass is the way it can make Cricut cuts look like Epoxy stickers. Any fruit cut (especially cherries) look really fun all glossy! It now looks like an expensive sticker, but it isn't!

I used the Paper Dolls stamp set, a Echo Park paper pack, and a little teal glitter trim to finish out the card on the inside!

Cherries have always been my favorite design. I can't seem to resist them in the craft store; doesn't matter if it's cloth, paper, stickers, buttons, and so on, I buy it immediately!
