Blueberry Note Cards!

It is my privilege to be able to pick blueberries for a local farm.  During the months of July and August I will pick pounds of these blue beauties!  My payment is in blueberries!  What a delight to open my freezer and have these berries available all year long! 
In appreciation for the berries, I make handmade cards for the owners of the farm.  
I am getting a head start on the cards by using the Cricut Cartridge "Preserves" and two sets of stamps, "Faith Greetings" (TPC Studio) and "All Around Quotes" (Fiskars) to create the first set of cards featuring blueberries.
The blueberry images are on pages 50 and 51 of the handbook.  
I am using the Cricut Gypsy (hand held design studio) and the Cricut Mini to cut the images.
The image layers are cut in two shades of blue card stock and two shades of green card stock.  I am using a plastic drawer divider to keep the pieces separated.  I glued white paper to the bottom of the drawer divider so the pieces can be easily seen.
The first card features the cluster of berries.  The pieces are glued together and then adhered to the  card front.  I adhered one of the clusters with dimensional foam tape to give it depth.
The second card features on cluster of berries.  I used dimensional tape to adhere the image.
These blueberries are single berry/branch images.  I glued three of the branches together to form a cluster.  The top berry/branch is adhered to the card front using foam tape to give depth.
This card features the single berry/branch and the cluster.  The cluster of berries is adhered with foam tape to give depth.

Caroline, totally wonderful cards! I love blueberries but it's too cold where I live to grow them. We have Saskatoons instead which are wonderful also.
