Mmm... Strawberries

Happy Weekend! My days off have changed so now my weekends are Wednesday and Thursday. For the rest of this year at least. 

Strawberries are in season now. Yum! I remember living in California where there were fields of strawberries and you can buy them right there. 

I found an idea on Pintrest for the Kraft part of this card. Mine turned out slightly different but still like the look of it. This card was made for Sparkle N Sprinkle using the Sweet Strawberries stamp set.

I embossed the Kraft CS with a wood grain folder and than cut into about 1/2' strips and wove them together. The strawberries were colored with Copics and than added Shimmer embossing powder with a Versamark pad and heat set. You can see the shimmery goodness here...


  1. Those strawberries look yummy, the colour is just right! xxx Keren
