Growing Strawberries!

After seeing one on the Cricut message boards, I really wanted to make a flower pot card with strawberries in it! I had this picture in my mind of how I wanted it to look, but after making it using the instructions from Splitcoast, it seemed kinda small to me. So I decided to "cheat" and make the card using the flower pot on the Walk In My Garden cart. I wish I could remember who I saw do this card- but I give credit to whoever that person is!!

The flower pot was cut at 4" using the blackout feature.
The strawberries are from Indie Art cut at 2 1/2" (using the shadow feature for the black cardstock).
The green border was run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder and I lightly ran a White Cloud Dew Drop ink pad by Versa Mark over the dots to highlight them. Finally, the edge was punched using the Threading Water punch by Fiskers.
This was fun and tomorrow I'll be making a couple more with flowers....maybe even 3D flowers.....hmmmmm.....
