Strawberry Shaped Card

Well, this is strawberry week at The Cutting Cafe.  I decided to use the The Strawberry Shaped Card for my project.  It is just one of many strawberry sets that are available at TCC.  I really like the idea of doing a shaped card.  I enjoyed the house so much last week that I decided to keep with the shaped cards.  I used 4 different papers on this project.  Two are designer papers (the strawberry shape and the leaves), one is a textured card stock (the chocolate dip part) and glossy photo paper (for the seeds).  After cutting out the images, I sponged some texture and assembled the pieces.  The chocolate dip was an afterthought.  I added little white dots to accent the outlines and used a Clear Star pen on the dots on the leaves to make them sparkle.  I hope you are able to see this in the picture.  It always seems to show up better in real life!  I found this piece of ribbon (don't know where it came from) and used a very small grosgrain ribbon to tie the ribbon into a bow.  The tiny ribbon was white and I colored it with Copic markers to match the edge of the bow.

I guess that's all for now.  Don't forget to check out the other designers and see what they have made.
Also, please leave me a message so that I will know you were here.  I read all comments!

Until next time...
