On Friday I shared one of the Treat Boxes I had decorated with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. Today I have the matching card to show. I intentionally made it quite similar to the layer on the top of the treat box.
Even though the layout of the focal layer is quite similar to the box, it is stepped up somewhat. I added a layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I do not know whether this would be considered embossed or die cut? I used the Stitched With Whimsey Dies to add the stitching around the center layer. It does not cut out the piece, it only adds the stitching. I used the second largest die for this project.
The background DSP that is sticking out from behind the center layer is from the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Bundle Berry Blessings. As I said on Friday’s post, I really LOVE this pack of paper. It is one of the best ever.
For the stamped images, I started with the background zigzag stamp from the Hearts & Kisses stamp set. I stamped it using So Saffron Ink for a very light color. The leaves and flowers are stamped with Granny Apple Green Ink, and stamped off first. I wanted this a little lighter as well. I did not color these so the So Saffron would show through.
The strawberries and caps are stamped and punched using the Strawberry Builder Punch, which is part of the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. I stamped the berries with a black outline because I like the look of the black seeds. I have stamped them before using Cherry Cobbler as the outline and Real Red as the center. The bottom two berries are glued down and the top one is raised using a Stampin’ Dimensional. On the treat box, I made a 3D strawberry. I did not think that would work very well to go in an envelope or mail.
For the final touch, I stamped the greeting using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I love my Bling!! So I added three of the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to give it some shine.
