Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I’m sharing a card to send that depending on what you put on the inside, it could work for a get well, a birthday, or any “well wishes” occasion! I have a friend that I’m going to send it to as she will need a get well card. I’ve used the beautiful Lovely Layers: Strawberries as the main element with some pretty paper and layering dies in the background.
First I die cut two each of the strawberries and other pieces in the Lovely Layers: Strawberries set. To make it easy to ink blend the die cut pieces, I left them in the negative space and added removable tape to the back to hold them in. I used ink blending brushes to add these Distress Inks: Aged Mahogany, Lumberjack Plaid, Barn Door, Abandoned Coral, Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, and Squeezed Lemonade.
I adhered the strawberry layers together with Bee Creative glue and set them aside to work on my card base.
I cut a piece of gingham paper from the Gingham Happy Hearts paper pad to 4″ x 5-¼” and adhered it to an A2 card base. Then I die cut a vellum layer and white cardstock layer with two dies from the Opulent Layering Frames Honey Cuts. I added adhesive to the center of the vellum piece and foam tape to the white cardstock layer to adhere them to the card. Then I cut a label with the smallest die in the Opulent Layering Frames. I stamped a sentiment from the Get Well Soon stamp set with Intense Black ink.
To adhere the elements to the card I added foam tape where the strawberry bunches hung off of the label. I used a few thin foam squares here and there behind the other strawberries and then adhered it all with a dot of glue in the center of each bunch. I trimmed off the overhanging pieces with some scissors. The sentiment is also popped up with thin foam squares.
For a bit of shine, I added some clear enamel stickers from the Shimmer and Shine Enamel Stickers set.
There’s nothing like sweet strawberries to remind us that spring is just around the corner! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful and craft day!
