What did one strawberry say to the other? “Look at the jam you’ve gotten us into!” 😉
You know what I think is great? There’s a business a few miles from my house and every time I drive by there they have a new joke on their sign. I hope I never have an accident while I drive by reading their jokes. 😉 They’re always really cute ones too. I try to remember them so I can tell my joke loving sons.
Well, you were all so sweet to wish me a Happy Birthday! So, thank you all again! These strawberry cards were thank you’s that I made for some of my extended family. My niece made me the NICEST thing EVER!! She painted a picture for me!! I’ll take a picture of it soon and post it for you to see. It was really sweet. I got other nice things too, but that was a real treasure.
What I Used:
Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut Cartridge – Strawberry pg. 32
(card, berry bottom & top)
Walk in My Garden Cricut Cartridge – Envelope pg. 129
Paper – Green paper for top is New Leaf by PaperTreyInk.com; Red Strawberry paper is (Oh, no…I don’t know. It came from my scrap stash, sorry!); black cardstock from Stampin’ Up; All Envelope Paper is from K & Co. Urban Designer Paper.
Stickles – Lime Green (on the strawberry stem). (Click here to learn about Stickles.)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders – Swiss Dots (strawberry base), D’vine Swirl (stem)
Basics – ATG gun, Zig 2 Way Glue Pen, Scorer (I used one by Provo Craft), Sizzix Big Shot & my red Cricut Expression (whom I fondly named Dean after the older brother in the show Supernatural. My white Expression’s name is Sam…the younger brother, LOL.) Here you can read about when “Dean” was “born”. 😀
I say use double sided paper to make envelopes! Also, it’s a great way to use up paper that you’re tired of or don’t have a use for.
This paper was 12×12 and I used the “Fit to Page” button on my Cricut Expression. The envelope printed at 4.9″ x 4.9″. So, I made the little strawberry card a bit smaller. 😉 It’s true, I used Souffle 3D opaque pens to write inside the card. It turned out pretty well, but I’d really suggest a gel pen instead. I had a few problems writing a note with them. Maybe it’s because I hold my pen funny? For real. If you ever see me sign anything…you’ll know what I mean. It could be that these pens aren’t meant for note writing and are instead for smaller, more concentrated things…like little drawings and coloring in.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post. I wanted to use some older cartridges because although they are older (like me on my b’day) they’re still kickin’!! 😀
