Sweet Strawberry Card Samples

Winter days can be cold and gray up here in the North Star state of Minnesota. I think that is why I love to incorporate lots of bright colors in my cards. Bright colors like Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay break up the dreariness and boost my mood. The Sweet Strawberry & the Strawberry Builder punch in the new Jan-Jun '21 Mini are another great option to help ease use through the remainder of winter.

Last week my teammates and I made a few samples to highlight this beautiful set, including the complementing set, Berry Blessings, which can be earned for free from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, which ends February 28th.

Here are my two samples:

The layout for these two cards is nearly identical, I just picked from the two palettes of these sets, using layered rectangles of DSP to create the main design. The strawberries are punched from the Strawberry Builder punch, using the Designer Series Paper which looks exactly like the seeds of a strawberry fruit. The punch also cuts out the leaf stem and a little flower if you like.

For your strawberries, I recommend using Real Red or Pure Poppy. The blueberries stamp up beautifully in Pacific Point.

I sure hope you enjoy these cards as much as I enjoyed making them!
