strawberry fields forever....
The sketch for this card is from Papertake Weekly and the design motif is for Cute Card Thursday #71- Let's Get Fruity (to use fruit on your card). Love the sketch and it worked very easily to put everything on it that I wanted. The fruit part- cherries are the current fad. Even though the K&Co Sweet Berry had cherries on it, even though I have cherry rubons, I wanted to stand out by doing something different and went with STRAWBERRIES. See the little strawberries on this patterned paper? It's my fave fruit!!! I remembered that I have had this strawberry button for AGES and it worked perfectly with this card theme! The ribbon came from a thrift store, flower from Kris and the sentiment is SU!
365 Cards was to create a card with a flap and a surprise underneath. I went with the swing card. Shut, it is an elegant birthday card, pulled open, the middle flap swings and the sentiment is revealed. Paper, stamp, ribbon from CTMH. Thanks for looking today!
