Hi ya'll. Hope everyone is getting ready for their 4th of July celebrations. We are actually home for once on the 4th. We plan to go to our little town parade in the morning and then we will spend the evening at a local park. We will probably ride our bikes on the path and maybe play disc golf before the fireworks at dusk. The weather looks to be beautiful for this time of year in MI. As for the card, it is my entry for Laura's sketch 3 over at "2 sketches 4 you" blog. I needed to make a thank you note for our Couples Bible study leaders who graciously hosted almost every meeting even though they have 3 small children with one more on the way. She even made us all homemade strawberry jam. So naturally I am using paper with strawberries in it. The stamp is a dollar stamp from Canadian Maple Collections. I stamped it 3 times on white cardstock with Black Versafine. I colored with colored pencils and blended with a blender pen for pencils. I cut them out. I then wanted more pizzazz so I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU) to them. To assemble the card, I first made the card out of bright green cardstock A2 size. Then I cut a piece of DP(K&Co.) to fit the whole front of card. Next I cut a strip of matching DP and attached across the middle of the card. Then I made the border on the right with a berry red piece of cardstock. I used my scallop border punch(Martha Stewart) to add the frills to it. I attached it then. I stamped "thank you"(Unity) on the green DP paper. I then attached the stamped strawberries onto the card. Two are mounted flat, but the one over the greeting is on a dimensional foam piece to raise it. The last thing I did was attach the little green bows to all 3 strawberries. Hope you like the card. Have a wonderful 4th!
