Other than coloring the basket, this card was super quick to put together! I started with an A2 card base and added a piece of gingham paper form the Back to Basics paper pad that I trimmed to 4″ x 5-¼”. I topped that with some 80# Neenah that I cut to 3-¾” x 5″. The Bee Creative Precision Tip Glue is perfect for adhering these layers!
I used the basket from the Bushel and A Peck set and stamped it in Copic safe ink. I wanted a shorter basket, so I fussy cut the basket, cutting off the top portion. I colored the bottom portion with these Copic colors: E59, E57, E55, E23, and E53. I added foam tape to the back. Next I die cut the grass in two shade of green card stock with the Grass Border Honey Cut. I adhered one piece to the white layer with glue, and added foam tape along the bottom edge of the top grass piece.
I stamped the strawberry outline stamp, from the Freshly Picked set, with Versafine Onyx black ink. Next I used the solid strawberry and leaf stamps to fill in the outlined stamped image. I stamped the solid strawberry in red ink, and the leafy tops in green. I also stamped extra leaf tops. I used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut them. I arranged them in the basket, adding foam tape to all but one. Once I had all the pieces ready, I added them to the card. I love how these solid stamps make it so easy to quickly color the stamped images!!
I stamped the sentiment from the Pearfect Sentiments set with Versamark ink onto black card stock. I added white embossing powder and heat set it and then die cut it with the coordinating Honey Cut. I popped it up with some foam squares. While I had the sentiment set out, I stamped another sentiment inside the card and used an extra strawberry and strip of gingham paper to finish it off. For a bit of bling on the card front, I added white gel pen accents to the strawberries, Glossy Accents to the basket, and a few of the oh, so cute strawberries from the Strawberry Daiquiri sequin mix.
I love how this turned out! A basket of juicy, fresh strawberries is a real favorite of mine! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous, and crafty, weekend!!!
