Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Red Card Stock, 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy Die, Derwent Watercolor Pencils (Rose Pink, Pink Madder and Burnt Yellow Ochre), Distressed Markers (Candied Apple and Mowed Lawn), Opaque Sparkle Vintage Pink Glitter, Diamond Stickles, Ribbon and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a 5″ x 7″ card out of white card stock and cover with a layer of Red and Pink Card Stock. Each layer will need to be cut 1/4″ smaller than the previous layer.  Top with a die cut from the 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy Die and then using a sharp craft knife cut out the layers of Red, Pink and White card stock so that you have a window. Next stamp the Berry Cafe Cling Stamp Set 2 times.  You will need to fussy cut 1 of the stamps and for the other one all you will need is the canopy.  For the canopy piece, leave a little extra on the top that you can fold around the complete image for a 3D effect.  Both pieces were colored using water-colored pencils prior to assembling them.  Cover the inside of the card with a matching piece of card stock from the Berry Cafe Paper Collection and then attach your image of the berry stand centered in the window.  Now, what card would be complete without a flower or several?  Stamp the Berry Blossoms Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock with Expresso Truffle and cut with the matching die. Before shaping the flowers with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Distress the flower petals with Memento Angel Pink and after you have created your flowers dust them with Opaque Sparkle Vintage Pink Glitter before adding some Diamond Stickles for a little extra sparkle. Die cut 2 of the pre-colored blooming berry images from the sheet of pre-colored images using the matching die.  In behind the flowers on top left and bottom right, attach one of these pre-colored images and finish with a pretty bow and enjoy.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.

  1. Good morning Joann, all I can say is this is “Berry Sweet”. I know how corny, this is what my husband keeps saying when I show him anything made from this collection. I love the pink and red and the lemonade stand is so inviting. Another great creation!
