It’s Saturday so it must be Crazy 4 Challenges time! I’m your host for the month of May and to start things off, I’m challenging you to make a card or project with gardening or the great outdoors as your theme. My yard is full of blooms right now and we’ve been eating fresh strawberries for a couple of weeks—that’s what inspired MY card today.
I’m using MFT’s Harvesting WTG for my card. Doesn’t her basket of plump, ripe strawberries make your mouth water? Yum! I stamped the image on my fave Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, paper pieced a bit, and colored the rest with Copic markers. Before popping it up on foam, I matted it with Fossil and Red Hot card stock. For the base card, I added some Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX die cuts with some zig zag stitching accents at the top. The sentiment was stamped on a Die-namics Designer Labels I STAX and adhered under the twine-tied button. Under the button is a Die-namics Leafy Flourish die cut.
Here’s the inside with a sentiment from Big Greetings.
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
