Thanks Berry Much
I thought I'd use my new Big Berry set which arrived on Monday. Isn't it fab!
Couldn't believe my luck when I saw the freebie paper pack which came with this month's Card and Papercraft included a background paper with strawberry jam jars on it. The polka dot paper is also from this set.
I stamped the strawberry using Peeled Paint and Fired Brick distress inks and embossed with clear powder, and then cut a circle shapes with a Spellbinders Circle and Petite Scalloped Circle. The white circle seemed a bit bare with just the strawberry on it so I masked it off, and overstamped with the floral border stamp from Pic-Nic Patterns (fast becoming my favourite set).
I fiddled a bit with the sentiment - initially stamping on white and cutting with a Spellbinders oval, but it was too overcrowded, so I decided to just stamp the sentiment on the background in black.
I used the sketch from WMSC109 as inspiration for the card, keeping pretty true to it except that my card is A6 not square.
