Strawberry Kisses

Cut a peace of red card stock 12 x 5.8 inch's then fold in half and crease with your boning knife,  Then I cut a peace of Strawberry Paper which I got from Close to your Heart  Cut this to allow for a little bit of red to be seen on the  edges.  

 I used this Besti Image with the Strawberry and thought that it would go perfect with the paper.

  I used some red glitter paper and cut out a round scallop with my nesting die and cut in half, and placed under my image, which I cut out with the same scallop nesting die.


I cut a peace of red lace to go along the bottom of my card.  I then cut with a Martha Stewart punch the little heart border.  Before I put my card together, I stitched around my card with red cotton on my sewing machine.  Put the ribbon on before sewing around your card as this needs to go on before you stick your paper down on an Angel on your card.

I use red tape on my glitter paper as it sticks much stronger.   I decorated my card with buttons and bling, I used a few buttons to add colour and pop to my card.   I stamped birthday wishes on a peace of white card stock and distressed the edge with real red ink.  I cut this out with a scalloped punch.  I decorated my image with some red hearts from Close to my heart, Just have fun.
