Hello, Everyone! Today I’m sharing a colorful, cheerful card featuring the Eucalyptus Stem and Berries Contour Layers die set. As you can see, I only used one little part of that die set, but that’s sometimes all you need! I love using products in unexpected ways, and these berries end up looking like bubbles, don’t they?
One of the best things about making this card is that I got to use a bunch of the little scraps of card stock that I refuse to throw away. Each of my berries/bubbles is a different color of card stock. I just cut really small pieces of each color and was able to cut about three different colored berries at a time with the die.
I was going to use the other part of the berry die to cut solid white circles to go behind my berries. But, I already had a bunch of white circles that have been in my stash forever, and I was excited to finally get some use out of them! I glued the berries onto two layers of those circles. The white circles are slightly larger, and I love how they look. Before adhering them to my card base, I stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink. I think this cheery sentiment goes so well with all of the color.
I adhered the berries/bubbles to the card with glue, trying to make the placement look random. I then added some clear drops around the circles, which I think adds to the bubble effect. I love how the card turned out. It’s very clean, yet playful.
Thank you so much for joining us today. I hope this card brings a smile to your face.
Wishing you a crafty day,
