The Greetery BotaniCuts Strawberries + Video

This past weekend was rainy and miserable here, so I thought I would cheer myself up by inking up some bright red strawberries! I love strawberry prints so much. They take me back to my grandma’s wallpapered kitchen, with her white frilly curtains over the windows. Needless to say, it was love at first sight when I saw the BotaniCuts Strawberries die.

I made 5 strawberry bunches in all. I die cut white card stock, and inked the paper with Distress Oxide Inks. I used Barn Door and Aged Mahogany for the berries, and Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness on the leaves. Once I glued the pieces together, I moved on to the background.

I blended Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon onto Bristol Smooth paper, and let the panel dry for a bit. I glued the strawberries onto the panel, trimmed the edges, and attached it to a card base. I glued the white flowers into place, and colored yellow centers with Y00 and Y000 Copic Markers. I finished the card with a hot foiled Opposites Attract hello.

You can watch how I put this card together HERE:

I love how the white flowers really balance out the vibrant colors of the card. This was a lot of fun to make, and I hope I was able to send some crafty inspiration your way. That’s all that I have for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Strawberries are a favorite all year long. I am anxious to see if ours survived our Michigan winter. Too early yet as we are still getting snow! I love the contrast of the red berries against the blue. I bought this set at the release and have used it several times since. Hope your rain moves out but in the meantime your work is great! 😍
