Hi there! This is Daniel West with Del and Artie, what a joy to have you with me on the blog today! 

Summertime has arrived and sweet, sun-ripened strawberries have, too!! What a great time to bite into a juicy, red berry dipped in chocolate or dulce de leche. When I think of my favorite fruit, strawberries in the summer, with a little sugar and cream—oh my— I have to stop.   

Needless to say, a card with strawberries on the front makes for a great way to tell someone how much you love them. So, today, I made a beautiful berry themed handmade card using Pure White 100 lb and Sirio Ultra Black cardstock from Cardstock Warehouse, colored in with Catherine Pooler inks.

To begin, you will need to gather these supplies:


Follow these step-by-step directions to complete your card: 

  • Begin by cutting a 4.25 x 5.5” (A2) card panel and an 8.5 by 5.5” card base out of a sheet of Pure White cardstock
  • Stamp the small strawberries out in Peppermint Scrub ink and the leaves out in Green Tea ink onto some Pure White cardstock. 
  • Stamp the large strawberry out using Rouge ink
  • Die cut all of the pieces with the coordinating dies.
  • Stamp the Sketched Stripes image out onto the A2-sized panel using Black Jack (dark gray) ink.

  • Adhere the smaller strawberries and leaves onto the front of the panel.
  • Pop up the large strawberry with some foam tape onto the front of the panel.

    • Heat emboss the sentiment on to some black cardstock with white embossing powder.
    • Trim the sentiment down to a rectangle and add a fletch tail on the left-hand side.

    • Adhere it to the front with foam tape, as well.
    • To finish off the card, adhere the panel to the scored card base with some strong adhesive
