Spellbinders Large Die of the Month Kit | August 2022 | Strawberry Patch

Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Strawberry Patch Kit handmade card.

Die Cut Strawberry Themed Cards

The Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Strawberry Patch kit is just perfect for summer! I made three cards and I can’t decide which I like best. The first one I made for my daughter and her husband to go with a housewarming gift. Doesn’t the strawberry plant look like it’s dancing? I think it is so lively and cheerful!

The dies are big and beautiful so my first card is 4 1/4″ x 6 1/2″. I wanted variations in my reds and greens so I dove into my paper scrap stash and pulled out some pretty cardstock leftovers. The basket is die cut from Brush Gold Cardstock.

Don’t you just love the pretty little strawberry blossoms? I know I will be using these on future cards because they are so fresh and happy.

The die cut strawberries are so animated and joyful that I thought it would be fun to spotlight three berries with blooms on card #2. Once again, I die cut the strawberries with Spellbinders August 2022 Large Die of the Month Kit. I used Taylored Expressions Square Window Masking Stencil and then blended Grass Fields, Warm Sunshine and Peacock Feathers for my background. I again used cardstock scraps so that each of the three berries would be a different shade of red.

The “Cheers” sentiment is from Spellbinders August Small Die of the Month kit, which is filled with great delicate sentiment dies and coordinating sentiment shadows. Before die cutting, I attached adhessive sheets to the cardstock which made sentiment placement so easy!

For my final card, I combined three August 2022 Spellbinders Kits: Large Die of the Month, Small Die of the Month (sentiments) and Embossing Folder of the Month. I think they all work so well together.

I die cut the two sentiments from Brush Gold Cardstock. Prior to die-cutting, I attached adhessive sheets to the cardstock and this made sentiment placement so easy! I also matted the embossed panel with red patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to hear what you think about the cards.
