Hello, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was able to spend some time in my craft room doing what I like best lately – die cutting. I just recently bought this fun Valentine Mug Addition Dies set from Pretty Pink Posh, and I couldn’t wait to use it. I also got the Winter Mug Dies, which is what this “addition” set is intended for, and I hope to use that soon, as well.

Making the Card
I have had this 3D Berry Box Die Set from The Stamp Market for awhile and hadn’t used it yet. I guess I was waiting for the perfect berry to come along! And what’s more perfect than a chocolate covered strawberry, right? I really love this die set from Pretty Pink Posh. In addition to the strawberries, there are so many other fun elements. But, I did stick to just the berries, along with a few of the little decorations, such as the hearts and candy swirls.
As for the 3D Berry Box, it is not 3D – clearly. The die set does make the cutest little 3D container, and I do plan on making that at some point. But, I wanted to just make a card this weekend. So, I used the dies to create one side of the berry box. Isn’t it cute? I love the detail. I filled my basket with a ton of strawberries, all of which I decorated with dark or white chocolate and some embellishments. I even included some at the bottom of the container, since you can see through the holes of the box/basket.
The background of my card is my current favorite cover plate – the Pinpoint Contour Plate from Birch Press Design. I adhered the grouping of strawberries to the card first. Before adhering the box, I tied some string around it and then secured the “Have a sweet day” tag before tying it into a bow. I had heat embossed the sentiment using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide, and then I cut it out with one of the Swallowtail tag dies from Spellbinders. I glued the larger “love ya” sentiment die cut to the rim of the berry box. I finished the card by scattering some of the tiny hearts around the design.
I hope this card put a smile on your face today. Thank you so much for visiting my blog – I always appreciate your support.
