Today I am using the Heartfelt Creations Berry Cafe Collection for a card for that special friend in your life. Begin with a 6"x6" yellow card stock base. From the Berry Cafe Paper Collection, find the red and black checked panel, trim it to 5 13/16" square and mount it onto the card base. Remove the panel with the scene in the above photo from the paper collection. Stamp "There's only one like You" from the Classic Message Cling Stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then carefully trim out the two inner squares, back with yellow card stock, and then mount them with dimensional foam onto the card base.
From the Sweet as Honey Cling Stamp set and matching Sweet as Honey Die set, stamp and die cut the beehive and the fence using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp Berry Blossoms and Blooming Berries and die cut with their matching Berry Blossoms Dies. Copic markers used: Beehive and Fence - E51, E53; Ground - E30; Berries - R35, R37, R39; Leaves - YG21, YG-23; Flowers - B000, Y17. Using dimensional foam, mount the Beehive die cut over the beehive on the center panel. Using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, shape the berries, leaves and flowers and adhere them to the card with dimensional foam and Art Institute Dries Clear Glue.
For the inside of the card, add another 6"x6" panel, trimmed down to 5 13/16". Adhere the fence to the lower right and add a sentiment panel, stamping "So Glad you're my friend" from the Classic Message Cling Stamp set. My last step was to add Scattered Straw Stickles to the flower centers.
These are wonderful stamps and dies and so much fun to color. I have missed coloring and am very happy to be crafting again. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations blog for more fabulous inspiration.
