Mornin’, y’all! How goes your week? We’re enjoying a little warm-snap – which is lovely. Wayne’s been working up a storm and has 11 of our 12 new barn roll-up doors on – which will be AWESOME – cuz…supposed to be back down into the high 20’s on Thursday! 😉
I have a clean-and-simple card for you today.
I know – I know. Not at all what you expect from me, right? Well – hang on, cuz…I think you’ll like it as much as I do. It perfectly showcases the gorgeous Berry Blessings Bundle – which you can get for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 order (not including shipping & tax). Take a look-see:
See? Summer-on-a-card! 🙂
The layout is an interesting one from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.
This is a PERFECT little card to use up scraps that you’ve got sitting around. And your Stamparatus if you wanted to make multiples! 🙂
I started by cutting a piece of the Berry Delightful DSP into three 1/2″ wide strips. Then I matted each of them on 5/8″ wide Granny Apple Green. These started out at about 4″ – and then got trimmed down.
I pulled out a Basic White panel and arranged my three matted-strips in place – keeping them in order so the pattern would match up. Then, using them as reference, I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Poppy Parade.
I adhered the matted strips in place with Liquid Glue. Then, using my Paper Trimmer – I cut the excess off the right side of the panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat.
And….uhm….the card front was done! 😉
On the inside, I used Granny Apple Green to stamp the outline leaves images from Berry Blessings, then filled them with Granny Apple Green. I also stamped a couple of stems. Then I added Poppy Parade berry outlines and fills.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got more Berry Blessings berries and leaves on the front…
…and more of the wunnermus Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! There is truly NOTHING to not-love about this amazing Berry Blessings Bundle, right? It’s really stunning – with the Berry Delightful DSP bringing summer cheer to all your projects!!
I hope you like and are figuring how to add this bundle to your stash (if you haven’t already!).

Finn Fan Fix
Finn doesn’t always get on the sofa.
Well – not when I’m on it. He’s almost always on it in the morning. 😉
But, the other night, he hopped up and – apparently – had something he wanted to discuss.
But – it turned out all he really wanted to do was “help” me work on my blog! 🙂
Looks like he approves of my card!
