Strawberry Season...

A dreary day and busy kids has allowed me to sneak away into my craftroom and play. Here in Ontario it is strawberry season....I have yet to get out and pick strawberries this year because of the weather but hopefully next week. I love making strawberry/rhubarb pie and strawberry jam.


Kraft cardstock is my one of my favourites to play with when making cards. I took a sizzix template I bought around Valentines day at the Michaels Arts and Crafts store and embossed the top of the card and the bottom, cut along the bottom and the top, then I popped it up. I used the Fancy Tags Spellbinders die and stamped the picnic basket on top. Coloured with copics and popped it up too.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend crafting! Have a wonderful day!

  16. Fabulous card. Love the Early American Primitive feel. I guess there must have been an Early Candadian Primitive art too so I hope I haven't offended you!!! Fabulous simple design cleverly embossed! Hugs, Lesley
