Strawberry Seeds Friends Card

Strawberry Seeds Friends Card

Today I thought I'd bring you another way to use the Strawberry Seeds stencil.  This time as Raindrops.  This is a very quick card to make.  I started with a dark blue cardstock (You could use this or this) cut to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2." First, I treated it with my anti static powder tool.  Then, I stuck it to the middle of my Stick and Stamp mat.  I lined up the Strawberry Seeds stencil over the panel and used a blending foam to add Embossing ink through the stencil.

After removing the stencil and panel from my Stick and Stamp mat, I covered the sticky ink with Midnight Night Shift embossing Powder (a clear embossing powder like Icicle would work too). After heat setting my panel I cut it down with a stitched rectangle from my stash.

Then I stamped my image on some Perfect Blend alcohol paper (This is an older Brutus Monroe stamp called Fair Weather Fox) with Raven Detail ink. Tip: Look through your stash and see if you have an image with an Umbrella, using new items like the Strawberry Seed stencil and an older stamp set is a great way to extend our stash!)

I colored the image with Copics: 

  • B02 & B04 for the light part of the umbrella and B37 & B45 for the dark part of the umbrella
  • RV04 & RV06 for the bow and glasses
  • E25, E31, E34 & E35 for my Foxes

I cut the image out with a stitched circle and offset it slightly to the left of my raindrop panel.  I attached the whole thing to my White A2 top folding card base, and then cut off the overhang from my focal point.

For my sentiment, I used Simon Hurley Create. No Diving ink on some scrap paper.  I just looked through my stash until I found a sentiment that was perfect for the design.  I thought this was a great one that fit my what I wanted for my card.  

I decided not to add any bling or embellishments as the Nightshift embossing powder changes color in the light.  Here you can see how it looks shiny or metallic blue towards the bottom of my photograph and more mat blue towards the top.
