Sweet Strawberry


I finally picked up some of the stuff from my Occasions mini catalog and got to play with it. This fruit set is just the cutest! It's called Tart and Tangy and it's only $12.95. It comes with an orange slice(or could be a lemon or lime slice), an apple, cherries, and this strawberry. And the mini catalog stamp sets come die cut so it couldn't be easier to mount and put together! I used the new fun fruit designer paper to go with it. I had the hardest time getting a good picture of this card. It was either too dark or too washed out looking. I cut out the top of the strawberry and popped it up. The berry has crystal effects on it to give it that sheen. I put the square crystal brads inside the jumbo pewter eyelets.

I have lots more fun stuff in the works. Stay tuned for more ahead.
