Chocolate covered strawberry


I used the Sweet Treats cartridge for this card (One of my favorite carts!)



Cut the card base (Page 50) at 4". This is just a plain card, but fit the strawberry exactly. The patterned cardstock is from DCWV. Cut all other layers with your paper trimmer. Round the corners with a corner rounder punch.


Cut the Strawberry top (Page 34: shift/layer) at 2 1/2" Real Dial size. Emboss with your swiss dots cuttlebug folder and ink lightly with black ink.


Cut another strawberry top from dark brown. (same size) Trim as shown in picture below. For the strawberry leafs, cut from green (p. 34 layer) at 5" Real Dial size. Then trim off excess. (You don't need the icecream part). Tape a white piece of paper on the back of the strawberry as shown.


Draw lines on the leafy part with a colored pencil (I used Crayola) and then use gamsol on a small sponge and a blender stick to blend the colored pencil a bit.


Assemble strawberry and spray with glimmer mist. Use glitter glue on the white dots.


cover brown cardstock with dimensional glaze and let dry (a long time!) When it is all dry, adhere to top of strawberry. Looks yummy!

  3. You can buy Diamond Glaze at Hallmark Scrapbook (there is a link at the bottom of this blog) or you can search online to find Ranger "Glossy Accents". I use and like both brands.
