The Sweetest Day Card

Here are instructions for creating this card. I hope you find them useful. Finished size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

Materials List
Stamp Set - Sweetest Day from Unity Stamp Co., Itty Bitty by Jillibean Soup
Inks - Stampin' Up Markers in Real Red, Garden Green and Basic Black
Card stock - Stampin' Up Real Red, Whisper White
Designer Paper - Stampin' Up Real Red, Garden Green
Tools - Corner Rounder, 2 1/2 inch circle punch, 3 inch & 3 1/2 inch circle dies, Big Shot all from Stampin' Up
Adhesives - Stampin' Up Snail and Stampin' Dimensionals

1. Create card from Real Red card stock - fold on top
2. Cut white card stock to 5 x 4 inches, round corners and adhere to card
3. Cut white 2 1/2 inch circle with punch and cut 3 & 3 1/2 inches circles with dies using the Big Shot
4. Adhere the circles together using the Snail adhesive and adhere to card
5. Stamp the Strawberry in Black Ink twice
6. Color just the top leafy part of one and cut out.
7. Color the other Strawberry entirely. I used Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red, Garden Green and Basic Black.
8. Adhere the top of the Strawberry that you cut out on top of the other Strawberry that you colored in completely. Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals to add a more interesting 3-D effect.
