Summer Strawberries


Hello Everyone!  Cameo Spotlight is a new blog challenging Silhouette Cameo owners to some fun new projects.  The current challenge is to focus on summertime.   My sister is a strawberry fanatic and her birthday is this month.  This is the card and gift box I came up with to mail to her.  The image is a strawberry card from the Silhouette on-line store.  Doesn't it just say summertime?  The card layers are:  white base, black seed layer, and the top polka dot layer with seed holes cut out to expose the black layer below.  I used black stickles in those holes for a little bit of glossy shine.  Oh so pretty!  Inside, I chose to use a rhinestone file and switched out the blade for a sketch pen using the Chomas Creations pen holder (love that thing!).  I used a glitter pen, not sure the camera picked it up very well.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Inc Sweet as Can Be stamp set. 


What says summertime better than a pint of strawberries?  The files I used for the box and the berries are, again, from the Silhouette on-line store.  The largest berry is really the gift box.  My sister's gift is nestled inside.  The smaller berries are the same file that I reduced to 45%. 

I had a blast making this and hope you get inspired to try something like this too.  Thanks for stopping by.
