Realizing that January 2022 is just a few days away I felt the need to use up Designer Paper (DSP) and stamps sets thet would be retiring at the end of 2021. So I took out the Berry Blessing stamp set and some of the DSP I had not used yet. Here is what I did.


I started with a Basic White (#159276) card base measuring 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Then I scored the card (Landscape) at 4 1/4″. The folded and creased the fold.

I found a piece of black and white plaid DSP that was cut 2″ x 5 1/4 I layered the plaid rectangle on a 2 1/4″x 5 1/2″ Basic Black caed stock (#121045). I then adhered that layered rectangle length wise to the front of the card. (Almost in the middle).

I had sometime ago, cut out some strawberries from the Berry DSP  and placed those strawberry cut outs on each side of the plaid rectanglee.

I cut a srtip of Basic Black card stock 3 1/2″ x 1″. I used my Taylor Made punch (#145667) to create a banner of the Basic Black strip. Using a strip 1/2″ x 31/2″ Basic White card stock  I created another banner for the sentiment. Using Real Red ink (#47084) I stamped “Bountiful Blessing”

Then I added some leaves also cut out of the same  Berry DSP as the strawberries. on the banner for interest.

The message inside was from same Berry Blesing stamp set that stated “Wishing you the Berry Best”.
