Today I wanted to play with a background I made up quite some time ago for a sheet load of cards project but never ended up finishing and decided to give it a different twist by not making it a Christmas card.
Instead I grabbed some fussy cut strawberries and made it into a sweet birthday card instead.
The design used the gingham paper alongside a not obvious Christmas paper and so I thought the gingham worked well as a sort of picnic blanket look!
After arranging plenty of the strawberries and leaves leftover from the patterned paper playtime session at the beginning of the month it was time to choose a sentiment so I reached the usual Biggest Wish stamp set using the Starry Sky ink for the birthday and embossing the white Happy. I added in a ribbon too that worked well with the papers.
Love how this came out. Added some clear gems too for a bit of bling.
I have another of these backgrounds left in the to be played with stash where the papers are reversed but still not ready to make with it so will have to wait until the inspiration strikes!
