Hello and Welcome! Samantha here today, sharing this fun summer strawberry card. This is one of Elizabeth Craft Designs new releases which I paired up with the Beach Sentiments stamp set. I’ve had glimpses of hot summer weather and it’s put me in the mood to share this inspiration with you.
Step 1: Cut a card front using light pink card measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.
Step 2: Die cut the strawberries die with the following pieces of card stock:
Stems: Light green card
Leaves: Dark blue/green card
Strawberries: Various shades of pink card and corrugated pink cardstock
Strawberry Leaf: Dark Green corrugated card
Flowers: Light pink card
Step 3: Arrange and adhere the green stems onto the card front, leaving room for the sentiment.
Step 4: Stamp the sentiment using black ink.
Step 5: Optional: Add machine stitched detail.
Step 6: Arrange and adhere the 3x large leaves onto the card front.
Step 7: Use foam tape to adhere the strawberries/Strawberry leaves onto the card front – arranged in a way that they appear to be dangling off their leaves.
Step 8: Embellish the card with the light pink flowers, a few sequins and a pink twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
Step 9: Lastly, adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to a small piece of cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small circles that adhere to the middle of each flower.
It’s a very happy card and the pink strawberries (versus red) are a nice compliment to the blue/greens in this card. Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.
