Bet you thought I wasn't going to get a post done today, but I just managed to sneak in before crawling up to bed!
The swap theme at the craft telly forum this month was Flaming June, so anything that we think off as being associated with June is fair game. The cards are to be sent to the recipient by the end of the month. Inspiration had deserted me and, um, tomorrow is July. Rummaging through my stash tonight I found the Heartfelt Creations Berry Blossoms stamps and dies. Aha! My strawberry plants are full of red fruit, (which unfortunately the slugs are getting to before I do) and yummy strawberries do make me happy, especially as I don't have to share them with Hubby who refers to them as "poisonberries".
I stamped the motif 4 times and coloured it with copics and die cut them with the matching dies. I stamped a 6inch square kraft card blank with the word happy from a Winnie and Walter set, masking off the flourish at the end of the y so it fitted and heat embossed it in white.
Stupidly, I decided to add glossy accents to the strawberries before sticking them down with glue gel to form a frame. Of course, I got a fingerprint on one of the strawberries checking too see if it had dried yet and then dropped one of them face down whilst still tacky on the surface, but I think I got away with it!
