Hand Stamped Cherry Card Project

Here is a fun project - I usually make one of a kind cards but a friend suggested making many of the same type. This is not always possible, especially for embellishments that I may not have duplicates of, but this is entirely doable for simple cards.

 Here is an example of a set I tried. I did two different designs - one for "happy birthday and another for "thank you".  Between the two there are a few noticeable differences....besides the sentiment, thewidth of the border and the sparkly enamel bling, you may notice that the cherry image looks different.   One thing I tried is to use Glossy Accents on one of the cherry stamped images but you can see that it changed the color. It looks neat - much more like Ranier Cherries, but does not have the true red I was going for. I will be mindful of this the next time I use Glossy Accents over alcohol ink colored images.  On the plus side it blended the colors for a more seamless look.
