My Sheri Crafts - Ch 91 Back 'n Forth

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! The theme for Challenge 91 is Back 'n Forth. Our design team sister Marge asked us to use an accordion/fan fold as one of the elements on the project. My card measures 5" x 7" and is cut from white cardstock.
Designer papers are Greetings of the Season 2009 Hobby Lobby. Hmm, I have had these papers for a long time!
I enjoyed playing with some new Just Rite and Spellbinders crafting supplies on this card. 
For the fan fold rosette, I cut a 1" x 12" strip of the poinsettia paper and scored it at each 1/4" using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard. Edge of the rosette is cut with the Martha Stewart Poinsettia Flourish edge punch.
Cricut Cartridge: Lacy Labels - Two scallop circles in the center of the rosette are cut at 1.5". This is the Joy image which is the last image on the second row. The decorative brad in the center is Anna Griffin Holiday brads, an after-Christmas purchase last year.
Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots on the white scallop circle.
Cheery Lynn - French Pastry Doily Dies for the white doily under the rosette.
Just Rite Stamps - Christmas Nested Frames & Occasions. The sentiment is stamped with Martha Stewart red and green inks. I used a Martha Stewart red colored pencil for the berries.
Spellbinders: Just Rite Custom Dies for the corners and the two sentiment blocks.
Bo Bunny Wraps: Pretty burgundy crushed/crinkled wide ribbon under the doily.
The white doily and the sentiment blocks are pop-dotted on the card. Bow is from Christmas trim that I have had for many years.
