Basket of Wishes: Strawberries!

YuBasket of Wishes.0517m!  I LOVE strawberries!  My choice for a birthday cake would be angelfood cake with strawberries….unless I could have cheesecake.  Cheesecake always wins hands down!  🙂

Strawberries are so good this time of year so I thought I should (finally) post this card.  Yes, I said finally….we made it in class back in May!  Yikes!  Yep.  I’m a little behind with my blog posts.

All that aside this is a nice summery card on a not so nice summer day.  Cooler temperatures (yeah!) and rain are in our forecast for the day.  I’m going to run some errands and get ready for two classes and a stamping party.  I guess I have to fit cleaning my house in there sometime too.  Oh, well.

When die cutting stamped images it’s usually best to stamp the images and then die cut them but in this case I die cut the Stitched Shapes Circle first and then stamped.  This way I could make sure everything fit into the circle.  I used Shimmery White cardstock so I could watercolor the image.  If you didn’t know, watercoloring on Stampin’ Up!’s regular Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock doesn’t work very well because the paper pills and it’s not thick enough.  Shimmery White cardstock gives your card a little sparkle too.  🙂

Well, it’s time to get the show on the road and get busy.  Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
