Raspberry Birthday

Here is an adorable card I made today.  I used Preserves for the raspberries cut at 3 1/2" (the leaves are from the blackberries on the same cart). The tag shaped card base is also from Preserves.  I sized it to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and welded two for the card base.

I inked around the raspberries with some red ink. The polka-dot paper is from DCWV's Stack 7.  I inked the stems and leaves using green ink.  Some Glossy Accents really add lots of shine to the berries. :) The green polka-dot base also got a touch of green ink.

I used a 1/8" Gros Grain ribbon in red for the bow.  I used my Bow Easy to tie this four looped bow and added a little black button to the center. The leaves are attached with pop dots and the dimension is fantastic in person. 

I printed the sentiment using "Marker" font at 30 points.  

Here is one last look at the card.  I love it... I hope my hubby's Grandma likes it too... she'll get it next month at her 88th Birthday party!

Love the shape of this card! That paper is perfect for the raspberries, and boy, do they shine with the Glossy Accents. That font, and the sentiment, is great too!
