Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Thank You for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!! Either way, you're in for a treat!!! I used the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set to create my card for today.

Here is what I created for the challenge.

Here is our sketch.
My card base is Thick Basic White. I ran a panel of Basic White through my embossing machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D EF and adhered it to the front with liquid glue.

Next I cut out a frame in Polished Pink cardstock and a mat of Pattern Party DSP using dies from Stitched Rectangles. I adhered them to the front with liquid glue.

Then I stamped the strawberries, leaves and flowers on scrap Basic White using Polished Pink, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow inks. I punched them out with the Strawberry Builder Punch. The left strawberry is stamped second generation and adhered to the mat with liquid glue. The strawberry on the right is stamped full strength and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. The leaves are adhered with liquid glue and the flowers are adhered with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Strawberry on a scrap of white in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it with a die from Ornate Frames. I sponged the edges with Polished Pink ink and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Five 2021-2023 In Color Jewels completed the front.
