I love the look of a faux frame on a card so today I created one using the strawberry found in the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set.
- Watermelon Wonder Card Base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 scored at 4-1/4
- Basic Black 4-5/8 x 3-3/8
- Whisper White 4-1/2 x 3-1/4
Stamp a strawberry with Watermelon Wonder Ink followed by the strawberry vine with stamped off Cucumber Crush Ink. Follow this same procedure two more times until you have 3 strawberries. Stamp "happy birthday" with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Cut a scrap piece of card stock 3-3/4 x 2-1/2. Center this piece over the Whisper White art piece & use a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to draw a line around your card stock piece lifting the pen when you come to a stamped image.
Run a small strip of Snail Adhesive where the strawberries meet. Create loops of Black Metallic Thread and cut the closed ends so you have lengths of the thread. Fashion into a bow and press into the adhesive. Top with a White Perfect Accent.
The inside of the card also has some stamped strawberries and a line image drawn the same way as was done on the front of my card. The sentiment is also from the Fresh Fruit stamp set. This sentiment makes me smile because our 4 grandchildren always ask us to tell them stories from the past. Somehow it just seems appropriate because they never seem to tire of the "old" stories.
