A new obsession

Recently, I've been seeing a lot of deco tape used on cards in blogland. While I was in one of the Sanrio stores last week, I found a bunch of tape rolls with different designs and well, I ended up buying a bunch of them. They even have Hello Kitty ones. So that is what inspired me to make this strawberry card. I used a Sizzix die called flower and strawberry to die cut the strawberry. This was a die from last year's release.
Mother's Day is coming up next month and here is another idea for mom using a Sizzix die. This one is the scoreboard tea cup die that is a brand new release. I had leftover purple covered chipboard so that is why the tea cup is purple. I embossed it with a new textured impression folder called birthday set #3.
Roses were made using the 3-D flower die and the green vine is called flourish, flower with leaves. All of these new dies should be in the stores now. You can stick a gift card inside the tea cup and stuff it with tissue paper.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having a great Tuesday!!!

Both the teacup and strawberry cards demonstrate your skill in elegant graphic design. I love the special details that make them Cheryl creations.

Oh, so purty! That rose flower die must be one of the most difficult sizzix dies to find nowadays... hopefully I can get my hands on one soon!
