Wishing you the sweetest Friday day ever

Here is the second card I created using the felt strawberry embellishments that I made (see another card on yesterday's post) using a Jillibean Soup Itty Bitty stamp from Unity Stamp Co.  On this card I used a Cuttlebug fruit themed embossing folder as the focal point and added some of the coordinating Jillibean Soup papers on the bottom before adding the felt strawberry.

How I made the strawberry embellishment:
Stamp the strawberry image onto red felt and the leaves onto green felt (I just used the “cheap” acrylic felt from the craft store) using Palette Noir ink (I find this type of ink is the best for stamping onto fabric).  Cut out the images and piece together using fabric glue.  Add red and green stickles to accent image.  Tie small bow out of red satin ribbon, add small Prima flower with green jewel and adhere to strawberry.
