Cherry Cobbler + Crumb Cake = Classy!

I love this colour combination.  Cherry Cobbler is such a beautiful deep rich red - it looks like it should be velvety to the touch, and Crumb Cake (aka The Colour Formerly Known As Kraft) is the perfect accompaniment.  Add a touch of Very Vanilla and your project almost makes itself!

Here I've used the new Framelits "Labels Collection" from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue ... love this product!  You get a set of six dies ranging from approx 4.5cm wide (at the widest point) to 13.5cm - a size for every occasion.  They are designed so you can see exactly where you're cutting and get precisely what you want.

The keen-eyed among you may also be able to make out the little scored border along the bottom of the card ... I did this using my new Simply Scored scoring board - a handy tool, comes with a stylus and instructions for creating the perfect score, every time.  You can also purchase an optional metric scoring plate (for those of us who aren't so good with imperial measurements *g*).  I have been using this to score up the folds in all my cards recently, and am trying to find time to really explore what I can achieve - the many websites out there dedicated to the Simply Scored and similar products will help me there!
