There are some exciting new colours being introduced in the next catalogue and one of them is Cherry Cobbler. This is a rich, vibrant red that is more elegant than our other reds. It is new to the Regals Collection for Stampin’ Up! To see a comparison of similar colours, keep reading. And keep checking my blog as I introduce the other new colours in the coming days and weeks.
To create this card, I used the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for the Big Shot with Whisper White cardstock. I then layered the Whisper White cardstock onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock and then onto Whisper White again to make the card.
Since I didn’t have Cherry Cobbler ribbon, I made my own with the Whisper White satin ribbon. Scroll down to the end of this blog post to see how I coloured my ribbon.
Next, I stamped an image from the new Friends Never Fade stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and layered it onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Lastly, I stamped a greeting in the same colour and punched it with the 1-1/4" circle which was then layered onto a 1-3/8" circle of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered with stampin’ dimensionals to the card.
A simple card but the elegance of Cherry Cobbler makes it special.

TIP: Hold your ribbon onto the ink pad with a sponge and pull across the pad to colour the ribbon. Let dry. I went across the pad only once and let the colour soak in. Two passes across the ink pad was too dark.
