Guest Designer - The Rubber Cafe

Good morning. Happy Tuesday! I am happy to share my January Guest Designer project for The Rubber Cafe with you!

I only have one project to share today, but I hope to have more to show you on my next scheduled day, January 31st oops, January 29th. Today I am sharing a card I made with the Pomegranate Decor and Fabulous Phrases stamp sets.

I love fruit stamps (is a pomegranate a fruit?!). This set has a number of pretty designs to choose from.

I stamped the image with dye ink, then cut it out with a postage die cut template (Spellbinders Postage Stamp). I added some pretty red satin ribbon and a button tied up with twine. 

I used some pot dots to pop my die cut shape off the card.

I always decorate the inside of my cards to match the front. I cut a strip of paper for the bottom, then stamped one of the pomegranate images in gray ink. I stamped the sentiment in red and another pomegranate image in gray.

Thanks for looking!
