I am always in need of Thank You cards because I am a firm believer in sending them out for every gift we receive. Lately with Alex being born, his baptism and Claire’s birthday, I’ve been sending out a ton. I also send them out each month to everyone who orders from me that month! This strawberry card is perfect and I love the coordinating inside greeting – So Sweet Of You!!!
This card I created uses Poppy Parade and Whisper White cardstock. The Poppy Parade card base measures 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and the 2 pieces of Whisper White are 4″ x 5-1/4″. One of the pieces of white is for the front and one for the inside of the card!
Using the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set, I stamped 2 of the leaves and flowers in Memento Black Ink and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. I used Daffodil Delight for the flower centers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. You can stamp these images as close together or far apart as you wish. It all depends on your greeting panel in the center or preference on how much of the white you want covered!
Next, I stamped some strawberries onto Whisper White in Poppy Parade Ink. The outline image was stamped full strength ink and the solid background stamp was stamped off once (or twice if you want an even lighter look or a variation in color)! Using the coordinating punch, I punched them out! Then I took Granny Apple Green cardstock and stamped some leaves in Granny Apple Green. I used 2 leaves on the front and 2 leaves on the inside of the card!
For the greeting, I just used some scraps of Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock to stamp the greeting. The Thank You greeting is thinner but the Happy Birthday greeting is wider. I love how you can easily adjust this piece of cardstock to create either card. When I went to assemble, I added the strawberries first and held the greeting over the top to help with placement. The strawberries and greeting all have Stampin’ Dimensionals!
On the inside I used the greeting That Was So Sweet Of You and I love it! I also stamped the strawberries onto the cardstock but added punched out leaves. This was a bit of an accident to have my strawberries “standing up” or upside down or however you want to see that. Apparently I kept thinking of a pear. I did actually stamp another card with them the other way and it really looks just the same so I think I like this mistake one better! See no mistake in stamping is bad, just an alternative! 🙂
