Baby Strawberry



Well! What a Papertrey Release it was! I don't know about you, but I think the cards generated during the releases are just spectacular! Did you see the baby card made by Nichole with the new Fruitful set? Go see it here, but be sure and scroll all the way down to the baby card, and read all of the narrative! Ha!


Not ever having made a baby card with only fruit before, and remembering there are strawberries in Green Thumb, and seeing Nichole's card as a bit of a challenge... yoo hoo! Shout out to Nichole! Here 'tis my version, lol lol lol!



I used Hibiscus Burst and New Leaf as my colors. Not having any of the Bitty Box papers (yet!) I used a punched edge instead- Fiskars Apron punch. I wondered if I should have a little more color contrast, so I did the tops of the baby strawberries in different greens, but that is hard to see in the photo. My bitty strawberry is popped up as Nichole did, and my ribbon fold is sort of the same, but you can see I used a Nestability square set instead of a circle, and just one ribbon and button.



Not sure how the nurses will like this one- is it baby enough? It's fun to see which ones get used up first...and which ones hang around for a while. It is certianly true that the non-traditional colors do not get used first! This one is certainly pink, we'll see if they like it!

This strawberry baby card is so pretty. I do enjoy seeing all your baby cards! I bet the nurses have a good time seeing your cards, too.

I love it! Of course I'm a huge fan or pink and green. :) I got a chuckle out of reading your name in Nichole's blog. How fun for you!

Oh my Beth, I LOVE this!!! I've never thought of using a pink to stamp those strawberries (still one of my fav PTI images and sets). And I did see that Nichole mentioned you AGAIN on her blog during the release!! You are definately one popular PTI girl!!!! :-)

Beth, love the card and so so cute. Now you'll have to challenge yourself for a boy's card. Would love to see that one. Your cards are adorable. Alice R.
