Spellbinders | Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Club Kit. This month's kit is the 'Strawberry Patch'. There are lots of strawberries, flowers, leaves, a stem and a basket in the set, so lots of different ways to use them. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by die cutting the elements from the Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Club Kit using Spellbinders Cardstock. The strawberries have two layers, the front layer and also the back layer (which peeks through for the "seeds"/achenes). I used Poppy Field for the top and Alabaster for the back. For the stem and small leaves, I used Rainforest. For the added leaf layers, as well as some of the smaller leaves, I used Fern

The flowers are die cut from Snowdrift and Chamomile. I added ink blending to the strawberries using Distress Inks and an ink blending brush. I used Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany and focused most of the colour towards the bottom and right hand side of them. The pieces were then layered up and adhered using Bearly Art Glue

I embossed a panel of cardstock using the Spellbinders Diamond Plaid Embossing Folder and then added the strawberry stem on top first, followed by the strawberries and small leaves. The flowers were adhered with thin foam tape. The panel was then adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. 

The sentiment from the Perfect Pie Sentiments & Fillings Clear Stamp Set was stamped on to black cardstock using Spellbinders Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Spellbinders White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Spellbinders Opal Color Essentials Gems
