So Berry Sweet: Handmade Strawberry Greeting Card
This card is so berry sweet and so berry simple to make for a super summer birthday card or just to drop a little note.
Punch art starts with simply breaking down the individual component parts a design and then selecting the paper punchers you already have on-hand to create that design.
As each piece is punched and assembled by hand these will not be the perfectly polished pieces you purchase ready made at a craft store. Expect some charming (in my humble opinion) defects that make each piece totally unique.

- Start off by punching hearts from red cardstock. I used two sizes of hearts as strawberries are all unique.
- Then round the point slightly either with a corner rounder or just with scissors.
- Next use a white paint pen or a toothpick dipped in white paint to add some seeds to the berries.
- I used the daisy punch cut to fit for the cap of the strawberries. I punched stems for the berries and vines with the Stampin’ Up Bird Punch.
- The cherry blossom punch makes the perfect berry blossoms. To add a little definition to project I glued two punches together for the blossoms and for the centers.
- The alphabet set I have punches letters that are just too small for my tastes so I punch the reverse punch out with a small square punch. Then so the letters “pop” I glue a contrasting square behind the letter reverse punch. On this card I attached the back piece in a skewed manner.
- Lastly I added a white bow because I think that the white helps bring out the red and green.
