Gelukkige verjaardag, mama

My mom LOVES strawberries! I just had to make her a birthday card with the Tart & Tangy stamp set this year. The whimsical strawberries on the Whisper White strip were inked up with two markers (Real Red and Garden Green). I used my corner rounder punch (guide removed) to create the scalloped edge. Did you hear Stampin’ Up! will have a scalloped border punch in the next Fall/Winter Collection catalog? I can’t wait!

The lone strawberry on the red panel was stamped with Craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I actually stamped it twice so that I could layer the cut-out green piece on top of the red berry.

The Dutch sentiment is from a stamp set by Artemio. I stamped it on two lines so that it would fit inside the Styled Silver Designer Label frame. For fun, I used two Real Red brads instead of silver ones to fasten the frame to the card.

Thanks for stopping by on mama’s 70th birthday!
