Fresh Fruit Birthday - Stampin' Celebration Challenge

The Fresh Fruit stamp set and coordinating DSP remind me so much of childhood summer days, spending time in the orchard, in the fields with my mother and father, picking strawberries with my children, strawberry socials etc.
The Inspiration picture with Stampin' Celebration brought all that to the forefront.
This is the card I came up with - featuring strawberries.

  • Base cardstock is Watermelon Wonder, layered with Whisper White embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder.
  • On top of that is a 2" strip of Fresh Fruit DSP, and at an angle is a 3 5/8 by 2 3/8" piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock embossed with the Sparkle embossing folder.
  • Image piece is 3 5/8 by 2 3/8" of Whisper White cardstock. It was stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink with the background stamp from "Here You Are" (stamp off once first in order to obtain a light wash like look)
  •  On a separate piece of  Whisper White cardstock 3 strawberries were stamped with Watermelon Wonder; their tops with Old Olive.  They were cut out by hand and adhered to the Image Piece - reassembling the strawberries there. Some clear Wink of Stella gave some sparkle to the berries.

  • The image piece was matted with 3 3/4 by 2 1/2" piece of Old Olive
  • The completed image piece was now adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
