CASE-ing the Catty - Card Featuring Food

2019 CTC Banner

This week we have a fun challenge to CASE a card featuring food!

I've recently planted a lot of strawberries, so when I came across the project above on page 44 of the January - June 2021 Mini Catalogue, it popped right out at me.

I started by stamping those luscious red strawberries, using Cherry Cobbler ink for the outline and Real Red ink for the body of the strawberry. I like the extra definition you get with the darker ink. The calyx was stamped in Garden Green ink on Pear Pizzaz card stock and for the flower, I used So Saffron ink. All the elements were cropped with the Strawberry Builder Punch.

It's funny how things evolve when you craft. I was originally going to use one of scalloped rectangles from the Scalloped Contours Dies, so I die cut the white centre panel with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies to fit. I wasn't happy with that, so went to my Pear Pizzazz scraps and found the stitched frame in there and that sent me down a different path altogether!  I dry embossed a piece of Real Red card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back of the Pear Pizzaz frame to add a pop of red.

Using a Blending Brush I added a soft layer of Daffodil Delight to the Basic White rectangle and then positioned all the stamped elements. The first strawberry is adhered flat, the second one is popped up on 1mm foam pads and the third on Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set, stamped in black and positioned over the bottom strawberry. I added a couple of swirls of the black/white Baker's Twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and finished with a sweet Bumblebee Trinket.  The art panel was popped up on Dimensionals in the frame and then I adhered the frame to a Thick Basic White card base. To keep the borders in proportion, I increased the width of the card base to 11cm, rather than trim the length by 0.5cm.

For the inside, I used the Blending Brush again to create a soft background in the bottom right corner and stamped the leaf and flower spray from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink. I adhered a stamped strawberry over the spray with a white flower over lapping the strawberry.

Love the extra layers of colour you added. It makes the stamped layer stand out even more. I like your card better than the original.

Tina Gillespie

Your card is so pretty, Judy! And I'm very impressed that you know the name of the leafy bit at the top of the strawberry!

Monique Fielder

I love the cleaner lines of your card Judy, I am also in awe of how you added the twine to your card, mine never looks that intentional!

Rachel Palmieri

I really like the borders around your card Judy, they draw the eye to the subject beautifully.
