Jackpot Cherries Card

 
 
I made this card using a fabulous kit from Scrapmaster's Paradise!  It included several coordinating patterned papers & pieces of cardstock.  The cardstock was already cut to make the cards, so all I had to do was fold it in half.  She offers many fabulous paper kits.  
 
All products are by Stampin' Up.  I used the Eyelet Lace border punch along the bottom of the cherry patterned paper.  For the main image on the card I used a stamp from Game Night and stamped it in Real Red. I wanted to create a window around it instead of layering it on top, so I had to do a little extra work with my paper trimmer to make a border that is 1/2 inch wide all the way around.  The inner window is 1 inch by 2 and 1/2 inches.  The total frame is 2 by 3 and 1/2.  I think it was worth that extra bit of effort to have it be a frame instead of layering the stamped image on top.  It does make a bit of a difference.  Underneath the frame and stamped sentiment is a layer that measures 2 and 1/2 by 4.  I used a couple strips of paper near the bottom - the black strip is about 1/4 inch wide - ribbon would look nice here also.  The strip along the very bottom under the border is just long enough that it's all that shows through the holes in the border.
