Strawberries Everywhere!

Catherine is mad about strawberries and anything strawberry related. So when she and George recently moved into their first home together I thought a Strawberry themed new home card was in order and found the perfect die by Elizabeth Craft Designs (1149 Strawberries). I also saw a design for a card made using these dies by Anita, which inspired the shape, layout and background of mine.

I made a matching tag and filled a white basket with straws, serviettes, a plant, prosecco and of course real strawberries. 

I cut all the pieces from white Bazzill Basics cardstock, and inked the leaves and strawberries with Distress Inks (scattered straw, twisted citron, crushed olive, festive berries, worn lipstick, mustard seed and tumbled glass). Some items were layered up with 3 dimensional foam pads. and tiny dots of Glossy Accents were added to look like drops of water. I cit a 6" circle card blank and another circle with the centre cut out using the Cricut. I ran the inner circle through the Big Shot inside a cuttlebug embossing folder.
The banner was cut using a Sizzlets Alterations Decorative Strip Die - Tattered Banners
The frond was made with Sizzlets Alterations Decorative Strip Die - Spring Greenery
The letters were cut with Sizzlets Alterations Decorative Strip Die - Typeset
The butterfly is a Memory Box die
The flower centres are yellow flat-backed self adhesive pearls.

I created two more cards at the same time.
This one is all win white Bazzill Basics cardstock with white pearls...

... and this one is all made with coloured Bazzill Basics cardstock.

Wishing you all the best in your lovely new home George and Catherine.
