Stampin' Up! Fancy Favor Strawberrry box and You're a gem card

I saw the cutest strawberry, on a card over at Mary Fish's blog, and had to make one right away.  My card is not as clean and simple as the card over there, but then I don't lean toward the clean and simple projects very often. I LOVE them, I'm just not that good at CREATING them.
The strawberry is made with the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit die and looks good enough to eat! Don't you think? OK, maybe not.
The complete list of supplies is below, but here are a few pointers if you're trying to reproduce this card or box.
  • The measurements for the card pieces:   Base in Crumb Cake is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half, the Poppy Parade layer is 4 x 5 1/4, the top embossed piece of crumb cake is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches.  
  • The strip of Poppy Parade card stock that was punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch was 1 inch wide x 5 1/4 inches, which created the perfect double border for the 1/2 inch crochet trim.
  • The top layer of crumb cake was stamped with the strawberry image from Tart and Tangy stamp set in versamark and showed up really well until I embossed it.  I'm torn on which I should have done, but not convinced doing both was the way to go.
  • The little white flowers are the two smallest flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch, stacked and sponged on the edges with Daffodil delight.  
  • The strawberry tops are punched from Garden Green with the 5-petal flower punch, glued to the top of the heart and then cut off from the back following the heart as the guide.  
  • The stems and small leaves are the branches from the Two-Step Bird Extra Large punch.
  • The little rim around the top of the bag was made from the Level 1 Hostess Set In Color Designer Series Paper Pack.  1 inch x 6 inch strips were glued together to create a strip at least 13 inches and then die cut on the top edge of the Fancy Favor die and glued to the crumb cake bag before folding and gluing together.
