11/18/9 Snowberry Card

.
Every time we go to our cabin in WI, we drive by a road called Snowberry Lane. I just love the sound of that name and decided to see if I could come up with a card depicting Snowberries. What are Snowberries you ask? I have no idea!! But, I still like the name!
.
I pulled out Pocket Silhouettes and I found a stamp that could pass for a Snowberry Flower. I inked it up with Stampin'Up markers using Real Red and Handsome Hunter. I stamped the flower five times across the bottom of my card. But alas, even with my stamp-a-ma-jig, I was not successful in lining them up in a straight line. So, to fix that uneven look, I decided to do a couple of ribbon layers. And, you might note . . . the ONLY layers on this card!! (I'm so proud of myself as I find minimal layers hard to do!)
.
To adhere the ribbon, I used my SNAIL adhesive right onto of the ribbon and then just stuck it down onto my card. Did the same thing again with the second ribbon and then took my very sharp scissors and snipped the edges even with my card. But, I still didn't actually have any "berries" on my card. Then, since there seemed to be just a bit too much white space going on around my flowers, I decided to dot some berries in the fine tip end of my Real Red marker. Well, of course I over did it! How can you stop when you are making dots? How do you really know when you've made the last dot? LOL! Anyway, I got some interesting flowers out of it, but I'm not sure that I achieved a "berry" look. Oh well . . . I still like the card.

I LOVE this card and my favorite part is the little dots around the flowers. Great touch! I just ordered Christmas Greetings and got it in the mail this week. It is the stamp set I am using for my Christmas cards.
