Back to Black Funky Fruit Card


I had this crazy idea to cut the fruit shapes out of the Back to Black Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! and add them to a card... well, this is what I came up with .. it's one colorful, funky fruit card!!!!

You might need your sunglasses for this one!!  It's kinda bright! :)


This is a 4-1/4" square card made from Whisper White cardstock. The orange striped paper is 4" square (from the Flowerpot DSP pack - see below). Both the Flowerpot and Back to Black DSP packs are found on pages 186 and 187.


Above & Below: this is the Back to Black paper that I cut the fruit out of.. there are 12 patterns in the package (below) and although I love the whole package, this one really caught my eye.  You can find the Back to Black DSP on pg 187 in the new catalog.

Below:  I added stems and leaves by die cutting some Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the Flower Frenzy Big Shot Die (pg 232, #133728) and then I added sweet little punched out flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents punch trio (pg 222, #133787). A Candy Dot was the perfect accent for the center of each flower.


The Designer Paper in the background of this card is from the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper package (pg 186, #133698).


The new 1/4" cotton ribbon is super yummy to use.. soft and flexible and ties so easily!  I used a piece of Pear Pizzazz 1/4" cotton ribbon on this card (pg 207, #134562.

The greeting is from the #hello set on pg 128 #134237 (wood) and #134240 (clear). I stamped it on Whisper White and cut it out in a banner shape, using the What's Up! arrow punch to punch the end of the banner.


What do you think? Is this card too crazy? Or is it just FUN!?

Wow Patty ! That is amazing! I LOVE how you used the new black, just when I thought I did not need any more black dsp. Thank you for sharing this idea and making me add it to my wish list.
