I used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! January to June 2021 Mini Catalog for this sweet Happy Birthday card. Enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
- Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), a 2″ x 3 3/16″ label die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies, and a scrap for the blossom punch.
- Poppy Parade Cardstock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel and 1 1/2″ x 3″ for strawberries
- Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel and 1 1/4″ x 6″ for leaves and stems
- With Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the stem, leaf and blossom image randomly on the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock panel. I colored the blossoms with the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. So fun! I then added Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to the blossom center.
- With the Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the strawberry stem image two times and the strawberry leaf image three times on the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
- With Poppy Parade Ink, I stamped two of the strawberry images on Poppy Parade Cardstock.
- With Gray Granite Ink, I stamped the blossom image on Basic White Thick Cardstock
- I punched the stamped images with the Strawberry Builder Punch.
- With Poppy Parade Ink I stamped the “Just for You” sentiment on the lower right corner of the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and the happy birthday sentiment on the inside of the card.
- With Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the stem, leaf and blossom image twice on the bottom of the inside of the card. I colored the blossom centers with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and added Wink of Stella to the leaves and blossoms. I also stamped this image on the front of the Medium Basic White Envelope and colored in the same manner.
- I adhered the card front layers, strawberry leaves, and the top strawberry with Multipurpose Liquid Glue as shown. I added the lower strawberry with Stampin’ Dimensionals and tucked the blossom In with a Mini Glue Dot.
- I added a little Wink of Stella and a Bumblebee 2020-21 In Color Enamel Dot to embellish the blossom. I also added Wink of Stella to the yellow center of the blossoms on the Pear Pizzazz panel. A birthday card needs a little sparkle. Right?
