Hi crafty friends, I’m so looking forward to spring with the beautiful flowers and warmer weather. I thought a pretty strawberry card would give some great spring feels. I used a beautiful red cardstock and I added a pop of color with a yellow cardstock. I hope you enjoy!

The card I’m making today is an A2 flat card which measures 5.5in x 4.25in. I used the Frosted Frames die with the Bright White cardstock and the Lemon Drop cardstock. I die cut the Lemon Drop twice. I adhered the outer frame to another A2 piece of Bright White cardstock. I adhered all of the swirly framed pieces together with liquid glue. The white one will be on the bottom.
For the large sentiment, I die-cut the shadow from Bright White cardstock and the smaller “sweet” sentiment from Lemon Drop cardstock three times. I adhered all of those pieces together which gives it some dimension.
I die-cut the super cute strawberries from Bright Red cardstock and then added some details with some Copic Markers. I used R59 and R46.
I finished adhering the background pieces, I popped the center piece up with foam tape. I die-cut the leaves from Fairway cardstock and the flowers from Bright White cardstock. I added some yellow details with Y02 for the centers of the flowers. I die cut two of the smaller strawberries from Bright White and colored them with R20, 22, and 46 to give a pinker strawberry.
To finish the card, I added the large sentiment with foam tape and then a few more leaves and flowers. I stamped the smaller sentiment with black ink and trimmed it out. I needed some bling so I added Sea Foam pearls. I also paired the card with a Jellybean Green Pop-Tone A2 envelope.
