CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #116

Using the artist's rule of three.



That is the theme for this week's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #116 on Splitcoaststampers.



I used this adorable digi LITTLE STRAWBERRY COLOR from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.



I used Microsoft publisher to set up an 8 1/2" text box and made another text box within it at the bottom half ( 4 1/4"). I inserted my berries one at a time and added my text next so I could see where it would fit. I put my watermark on the backside of the card in the top half of the text box. I inserted three more berries on the right side of the paper outside my card. Then I printed it out on an 8 1/2 x 11" sheet of Cottonball White Cardstock.







I cut out my card, folded in half and cut out each strawberry outside of the card. I then popped up the berries with dimensional foam adhesive. Then cut a bottom panel for my card from Lime Juice and then 1/2" wide strips some for the width and some for the heighth. I wove them together, rounded the bottom corners and the bottom corners on the card and adhered the basket bottom with dimensional foam adhesive.

Cardstock/Papers:Cottonball White, Lime Juice (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Inks/Markers: Printer
