Berry fun!

Hello! I love summer, don’t you! One of my favorite things about summer is the access to so many fresh fruits and veggies. Strawberries, one of my favorites, was the inspiration for today’s Cheery Lynn Designs project. Six Strawberry note cards, and a basket to hold them. Something fun for a birthday treat, to say
"Welcome to the neighborhood,” or just for fun! 

The base of the card was cut from the largest of the Nesting Egg die set, I sliced a small portion off the top to give it more of a strawberry feel. A leaf from the Tropical Leaves was to perfect top to the berry. I added the Mini Fanciful Flourish for a few little vines, and a leaf from Large Leaves #2. Of course I needed a little bud, which I cut from the Flower Chain Border.

To create the sides of the basket, I used the Mini Pearl Rectangle Reflections die cut from Coredinations. I embossed the rectangles with the Woodgrain Embossing Plate. After sanding the embossed portion, I cut the center of the rectangle with my craft knife to create a frame for my Lattice box. 

There is still time to enter this weeks challenge for your chance to win the $20 gift certificate!
