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...
