A Cherry Hello! ~ Pie Series

Here is my third installment to this week's pie series, a cherry pie slice:

Materials Used:
  • My Pink Stamper Fruit and Veggie Puns stamp set
  • Cricut cartridges Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, George and Basic Shapes, Fabulous Finds, Cherry Limeaide and Preserves.
  • Stampin' Up Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Naturals Ivory, Early Espresso and Garden Green cardstock
  • Stampin' Up 1 1/4 grosgrain ribbon in Real Red
  • Stampin' Up ink in Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler
  • Stampin' Up Brights brads
This one takes a few more steps to put together, but  I think the end result is worth it.  Don't forget that the base for the pie and crust can be found in the pumpkin pie file.

I inked the edges of all the strips for more of a baked look.  Then, using the pie crust top base as a template, weave the strips onto it and adhere.

Once adhered, turn it around to the back side.  It should look like this.
Cut the sides following the template.

Glue the cherry pieces haphazardly onto the two sides of the pie.  Run your ribbon through the holes and adhere the box together.  I tied my ribbon next and then added the top layer of the crust to the box.  I then stamped my sentiment to the already cut tag, added the brads and adhered it to the top crust.  Lastly, I pieced together my cherry stem, rubbed the backside with the bottom of a pen on a mat for dimension, flipped it back to the top and adhered it to the top crust. 

My Gypsy File:

In my Gypsy file, the first tab says "with CLA".  This is for crafters that have the cartridge Cherry Limeaide.  I made my cherries for the inside of the pie with this cartridge.  If you don't have Cherry Limeaide, I also added a tab that says "with GBS".  You would use this tab to make the cherries using George and Basic Shapes.  The cherries don't have as much detail, but it gets the job done.  =)

The tag is made using Fabulous Finds and the cherry stem using Preserves.  If you don't have these cartridges, I included a stem cut from Gypsy Wanderings and you can cut your pick for a tag. 

Thank you for joining me again.  I look forward to seeing yo back tomorrow for the next pie in the series.
