I fussy cut the bee hive border from one of the square premade card panels in the paper collection and adhered it to the top of the decorative die cut. I then stamped the strawberry cluster image, fence and little girl and then water colored them. They've all been popped up off the base to give the card some dimension.
I did spend some time watercoloring on this project...but I did want to share a little tip with you this time as well. Did you know that you can duplicate this same card with all of the printed images from within the paper collection itself...no coloring necessary....with the exception of the flower centers. Heartfelt Creations has now started adding preprinted images that are ready to be die cut with the coordinating dies in the paper pack! Talk about making a super fast card when you don't have time to do all of the stamping, coloring and detail work!
I hope you've enjoyed today's share! I'd love to hear what you think of it, so don't be shy...feel free to leave a comment below!
Until next time...

Begin with a white 5"x7" card base. Next locate the paper in the paper collection as shown in the photo to create a base mat just slightly smaller than the card base itself. Ink all edges with a brown colored ink and adhere to card base. Using a light green patterned paper, die cut one cut of the Decorative Leafy Frame. Also trim a red polka dotted mat for the frame just slightly larger than the die cut. Ink all edges of both pieces using a light brown ink. Adhere frame to red mat. Locate the smaller hanging bee hive image from the paper collection and fussy cut hive along with all the foliage attached. Ink all edges with a brown ink and then adhere over top frame so hive is positioned in the center circle of the frame. Now adhere frame portion of card to base of card using dimensional pop dots. Stamp one image of the hanging berry cluster, one little girl image, one bee, one small berry blossoms image and one fence image onto white card stock using black ink. Color using watercolor pencils, and then die cut using coordinating dies. Adhere fence image and little girl to card as shown using pop dots. Using a spritz of water and your deluxe flower shaping tools, shape hanging stawberry image, small blossoms, as well as bee and adhere to top corner of card as shown. Cut out sentiment, ink all edges with brown ink and apply to card as shown using pop dots. Apply glitter to leaves of all berry images, including around fence and berry basket. Add glossy accents to all strawberries, and prills to flower centers.
