Happy Monday! Another fun challenge from Heather Nichols today, check out the video here.
This card is very simple and straight forward. I trimmed a piece of white card stock to 3 1/4" X 4 1/2" and used a distress Ink applicator with Tumbled Glass Ink to create the soft blue background. I stamped the large strawberry cluster image onto the card stock then proceeded to use all of the dies to cut the leaves, berries and flowers. I stamped each element, using the outline stamps for the leaves and flowers, and the fill-in images for the berries and tops. I used Copic markers for color on the leaves and flowers. Using Heather's advise, I ran each element through my Xyron sticker maker, front side down and then sprinkled each piece with glitter, brushing off the excess with a soft brush. The leaves and berry tops were adhered flat with a liquid glue while the berries and flowers were popped up on dimensional foam. The word "Sweet" was stamped in the lower left corner. Finally, I adhered the image layer onto black card stock cut to 3 3/8" X 4 5/8", then popped up the black layer onto the 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" standard card base.
I love Martha Stewart Crystal Fine glitter. It looks like sugar coating to me which sounds delicious on these super sweet berries! I hope this card stimulates your appetite for some sugary sweet fun with glitter. I look forward to seeing your submissions for the challenge, too!
