There is a scrummy summerfruit picture to use as inspiration for this week’s challenge over at Papercraft Star. My initial thoughts were to use cherries, as I haven’t done any cherry themed projects of late. Then I thought of watermelon. The one thing I knew I wasn’t going to do was strawberries, as I had done a couple of those already and thought I should do something different.


Oops – how on earth did that happen? Well, you know how it is! First I found this lovely label over at The Graphics Fairy, then I discovered some stamped and coloured strawberries left over from previous projects and before I knew it a whole card was born!


The jar image was something I found on Pinterest, I’m sorry I no longer have the link to the free download. I printed it out on off-white card and then a second copy on to vellum. The two together worked better than simple white, which was a bit stark. Both the jar and the label were edged with Vintage Photo.


I’d originally planned to use a doily but somehow found myself using a border of white crochet lace around the edge of the red backing paper.


In addition to the strawberries I used some die cut and punched greenery plus a little off-white sweetheart blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts. I love this combination.


There’s something about blue gingham and strawberries – to me they go together a bit like strawberries and cream!


So not the card I intended, but this sort of asked to be made, and I’m very happy it did! Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Mouthwatering, I always love your strawberry creations because the strawberries look good enough to eat.

    All you need now are some peaches, pears, red wine and Sprite!


  2. All you cards are just so beautiful! I agree gingham and strawberries just go together! I love seeing what you create each week over at the Papercraft Star.
