Hey there friends. Katie here today with a card that is just perfect for summer. Unless you don’t like strawberries, it is bound to make your mouth water. For me it reminds me of eating strawberries right from the garden and my parents making fresh jam. Yum!
This card features the new Catherine Pooler set, aptly named, Strawberries & Jam. It was fun to make with little coloring. Typically that is my fave part, but it was good to stretch myself outside my comfort zone.
To start this one, I got out my Life of the Party Mini Ink Pads from CP. I used Party Dress for the jar and berries and Lime Rickey for the leaves. I stamped the colors and then came back in and added the black outline. The Misti is perfect for aligning all these images and it was perfect for stamping the sentiment in the middle of the jar. Then, I stamped the flower as well and colored it with my Copics. Then I cut them all out with the coordinating dies. Tip for the jar die, when you separate all the parts, leave the label attached to the die and it will cut out the label part perfectly.
Next, I set those aside and got out the Simply Diamond Background from CP. Again, using my Misti, I stamped this one onto white using the Tiara ink. I used the edge of my paper cutter to tear the edge to give it an organic feel. Next, I layered some pink and green cardstock behind it, also torn and tacked them all down on a white base.
Next, I used glue and foam tape to stick down my images. The jar is flush with the background, but I popped out the label for a bit of fun. I also decided to add some green twine to the jar.
I wanted to add a few finishing touches to the card. I used a black glaze pen to color in the berry seeds, they looked great as is, but this shiny touch makes them look so real. I also added a few green embellishments for a bit of sparkle.
