Die Cutting, EBE by Julie Ebersole, Essentials By Ellen

Essentials by Ellen Berry Basket Card

The Essentials by Ellen Berry Basket isn’t just an adorable 3D box, it can be a fun card too! Carly is here today to share how she’s stretching her dies and turning the box into a card.

Could the EBE Berry Box be any cuter?! I just love it and I love that you can make cards with it too!

For this card I started by die cutting the Berry Box twice, not worrying about having the base flap.

I cut the side tab off the top and folded the top at the score line. I also cut off any of the bottom flap that remained. Then I used strong double sided tape to adhere the two box die cuts together.

Once my little berry box card holder was ready, I started on my strawberries. This stamp is easiest to use when you make a little jig, die cutting first and then stamping. (Julie has a great video about creating a jig, watch it HERE.)

To add a little bit of color variation, I stamped the strawberries first with Distress Oxide Spun Sugar. Then I used a blending tool to add a little Picked Raspberry and stamped again.

I cut a flat card to fit in the berry basket, 2-3/4 x 3-1/4 and ink blended a bit of Picked Raspberry on the bottom. Next I adhered strawberries to the top of the card so they would peek out when the card was in the berry basket.

This card would be perfect to add to a gift bag. And if you made a folded card to put in the berry basket, its perfect to hold a Starbucks or Target gift card 😉

Thanks for stopping by!


P.S. Did you know it’s National Craft Month? I’m definitely planning to celebrate by making cards, though maybe not as many as I normally would because I’m also busy cuddling this little babe! Meet Mackenzie…

    Oh my, that sweet basket is so pretty. Are your pureeing and freezing those strawberries for Mackenzie when she’s old enough. You and your mate made a perfectly beautiful little girl.
