Bright Pink Strawberries

March 28th, 2008

Been busy busy busy today working on lots of StampMania details.  It’s only three weeks away now and we are expecting over 130 people!  WooHoo!  This morning I saw the challenge on Taylor’s blog and had an idea right away.  She’s even going to have a drawing for a prize – so you should really go check it out!  I finally got to my stamp room this evening just in time to finish my card before birdie bedtime.  It’s a bright and happy card!


The colors are Pink Passion, Green Galore and white.  This very bright combo used to be one of my favorites, but I haven’t used it in a long time.  I had been working with the strawberries in red earlier in the week and thought it would be fun to change it up a bit with this luscious PINK!

This is really a pretty simple card, but the measuring took some time.  I’ll list my measurements in case you want to make something with this layout using the scallop circle punch and want to save a little time.

Card base is 5 1/8″, but it could also be 5″ without changing anything else.

White layer 4 7/8″ (could easily be left off)

Green Galore layer 4 3/4″ (attach the 4 smaller squares to this)

Pink squares 2 1/4″

White squares 2″

Pink Scallop Circle Punch from SU

Green 1 3/8″Circle punch from SU

Strawberry stamped on white and punched with 1 1/4″ SU punch.

Stamps:  Tart & Tangy, Polka Dot Background, Lots of Thoughts (SAB)

The ribbon is grosgrain and matches the Pink Passion quite nicely in real life.  Each strawberry has a tiny heart shaped pink rhinestone and the bow has 3 tiny green rhinestones.

Oh shoot – just now in typing this up and looking at the card I remembered that I wanted to add liquid pearls around all the scallops.  Hmmm…maybe I’ll do that tomorrow.  *eye roll*

Now my only problem is going to be finding an envelope to fit this card.  I think I might have template somewhere to make one…I hope I do!  Thanks Taylor for a really fun challenge – sorry I didn’t use cupcakes!  *wink*

Looks like we’ll be spending part of the weekend shopping for a new dishwasher.  We really really need one, but looking for one does not sound like fun.  Plus I’m really debating between a very basic model and one of the newer drawer types.  I’m very intrigued by those drawer models!  It’s just a question of whether it’s worth the extra cost.  These are the types of decisions that tend to take me forever!  And I’m pretty sure Curt will be fine either way and want me to decide.  If you have an opinion I’d be happy to hear it.

Have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
