DT Post by Ally - You're Berry Sweet!

Hi everyone! Ally here from Rock Paper Cricut with a cute card made with My Craft Spot stamps and metal dies. I wanted to make a summery card, and nothing says summer more than a big bowl of tasty strawberries. :)

I cut the strawberries and bowl from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge at 3.59". I layered the bowl of berries with the 4" Doily Metal Die. I tied a cherry red traditional bakers twine bow around my bowl. SO cute!

You're BERRY Sweet is from the Tasty Treats stamp set. I created the tag using the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies. I use the Tiny Doilies metal dies whenever possible. I love the fact that I always get a clean cut every time.

Now, the strawberries only come with a leaf/steam cut, so I added some blossoms using the Small Alphabet metal dies. Did you know the Small Alphabet metal dies have shapes as well? The flower shape is great for adding that something extra--like a pop of color or extra layer for dimension. Love!

I didn't have time to wait for glossy accents to dry, so I embossed the strawberries and bowl with clear embossing powder and heat, and it gave it some really cool texture and shine--with NO drying time.

I hope you all enjoyed today's card and you feel inspired to create. Please feel free to stop by and say "hi" at Rock Paper Cricut any time. Ally
