Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to my blog!  Thanks for stopping by.  Today's card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch 495.  I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Strawberry stamps and Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for this sketch challenge.  Sadly, my photography skills are not amazing, so you can't really see how beautiful this card is in person!  The Basic White layer was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, which really steps it up a notch. 

Real Read Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/4", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4" (*2), scraps for strawberries and stems
Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper ~ 2" x 5-3/4"

  • TIP:  before stamping the strawberries and stems, hold your scrap up to your punch the way you will be punching out the strawberry pieces to make sure you are stamping the right direction and in a place that will reach.  Also, make sure you are leaving enough room so you don't accidentally punch something that doesn't need to be punched. 
  • Stamp the strawberry outline three times on the Basic White CS scraps with Real Red ink 
  • Before stamping the inside of the strawberries with Real Red ink, stamp off on a scrap piece of paper once.  Repeat this for each strawberry.
  • Stamp the strawberry stem outline three times on Basic White CS scraps with Evening Evergreen ink
  • Before stamping the inside of the stems with Evening Evergreen ink, stamp off once.  Repeat this for each stem. 
  • Glue the stems to the strawberries
  • Stamp 'Happy Birthday...' on one of the 4" pieces of Basic White Cardstock
  • Place the stamped Basic White CS in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and run it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.
  • Glue the DSP strip diagonally across the front of the embossed cardstock.  Then, trim off of the excess with Paper Snips or a Paper Trimmer.
  • Glue the embossed Basic White CS to the front of the Real Red Card Base
  • Glue two of the strawberries to the front of the card as shown.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to add the third strawberry. 
  • Add a few In Color Jewels around the sentiment for the finishing touch
