Crimped Blueberries

Hello! This is for today's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS to make a Crimped Envelope Pocket Card. I don't have a crimper, so I had to improvise by scoring the envelope : ) I used this fun sprig of blueberries from the Artful INKables set Berry Picking. I colored the image in with Copic markers, cut it out and popped it up with foam squares. The edges of the envelope were sponged with Old Olive. The striped dp is from SU Urban Garden dsp. I added a scalloped edge to the "lid" of the envelope and 3 buttons. The sentiment was punched out with a SU Oval punch and sponged with Old Olive. I then popped that up on another oval punched out of Night of Navy. For the insert, I stamped the blueberries with Night of Navy, stamped the sentiment, cut it out, and popped it up on top of the blueberry image. The edge was colored with a Pale Olive Copic marker. I added a tab punched with the SU Round Tab Punch and added some texture to it with the CB Swiss Dots Folder. I hope you like it, and thank you so much for stopping by today!

I don't have a crimper either - but it's on my wish list ;) The blueberries totally make this card oh they are so bright and yummy - and the stripe DP behind them is perfect; great card, Kerri - and clever with the scoring ;)

This is adorable. I love how the image inside is just left as the outline and the outside images is a riot of color and texture!
