Itty Bitty Strawberries

The weather, at least today, is warm and sunny.
Spring is peaking it's stubborn little head from behind the clouds.
Which means strawberries are not far behind!
I am a sucker for strawberries...
3 x 3 cards!
The little example reminds me of a tray of sweet strawberries at the Farmer's Market.
I used Crumb Cake card stock #120953, and scored the front at 1" and 2", turned it and did it again up to the center fold. I ran Real Red card stock #108482,
through the Big Shot #113439 using the
Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder #117335 to form 'seeds'.
Then, using Stamping Sponges #101610,
I applied Soft Suede Ink #115657, to those raised dots.
The Small Heart Punch #117193, was used next to make the body of the strawberry,
The four petal punch from
the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309 in Old Olive card stock #100702,
was used to make the leaves.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called
Tiny Tags #118592.

Bring on the Spring and bring on the strawberries!
