Strawberry Picking

Hi! Today I have another card using the Sharing Sweet Thoughts Ronald McDonald House set.  A great set for a great cause!

Sharing Sweet Thoughts, Eastern Beauty, Wooden Crate, SU! Stampin' Up!

This was another of the cards we made at the class last Friday.  As it was strawberry picking season recently, I had this idea to use the wooden crate as my picking container.  I stamped 4 bunches of strawberries in Basic Black Archival ink so that you could see the red through the slats of the crate and to have strawberries over the top as well.  The strawberries are colored with Garden Green and Real Red.

To make the crate:

  1. Die Cut the Wooden crate – only need the front panel.
  2. Cut off all side panels on the score lines
  3. Create score lines on both the left and right at 1/4″ from the edge
  4. Use Tear & Tape to adhere the sides of the crate over the strawberries.

The sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set.  A hint of Garden Green card stock is peeking out behind the stamped panel.

I have decided to extend my offer of donating 4 cards to my local Ronald McDonald House for every set I sell through the end of the month.  Stampin’ Up! will also donate $3 of every set to RMCH.  If you’d like to help, simply purchase the set here.  Hostess code is: 69SWVKDA

Don’t forget while shopping, when you spend $50 (US prior to S/H and tax) you will earn a $5 BONUS DAY coupon good on a purchase in August!

Thanks for stopping by!
