SF-2021 February Brighten Your Day Blog Hop


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration!
 It is a "Brighten Your Day" kind of month!  

This month we're celebrating brightening people's days and isn't that what we Paper Crafters are about!?!  My favorite thing is just "hello" cards - to get one that just says - hey, guess what?  I'm thinking of you and wanted to say "hi" is the best.  So I super loved the Sweet Strawberry bundle just from the get go with it's "hello there"!

Those luscious strawberries look so fresh and good.  How fun is this to brighten someone's day - a fun card and a cute little matching treat box.

For each of the projects I stamped these images to punch out , using the template below as placement for my stamps.  This allowed me to stamp them all and punch one time - which is a great time saver.

This adorable little box is the current Paper Pumpkin add-on - and folds up easily, then you can fill with your favorite treats.

Don't know if you can see the little tendril on the package - but I made that with a very thin piece of cardstock wrapped around a skewer giving it a nice little curl.

Next I used my piercing mat and take your pick tool to curve the petals of the flowers before adding colored pearls to the centers.

My card just mimics the design on the little box - by using the polka dots from the True Love DSP and adding a few more strawberries.

Of course the envelope and the inside of the card have to have something cute also.

Hope you liked my creations!
