Strawberry Carton and Strawberries Template $3.95


First up the card I created, one of the things I love about this stamp set is that you have so many options on what to put inside WTG’s basket. There are 4 different fruits you can use … apples, strawberries, tomatoes & peaches. I started my card by stamping a whole bunch of WTG images and adding different things in her basket, then when I started coloring these images I noticed that 3 of these fruits could be colored red so decided to create a card that had 3 WTG images on it with a different fruit in each basket.

To give the basket some texture I colored the basket with my copics and then cut a piece of plastic shelving mat which I added a little copic blender fluid to and pressed this down on my basket. I paper pieced the girls shirt using the same designer paper I used on the base of my card and also added stitching to my card. The scallops along the bottom edge of my card was created using the MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallop die.


Here is the inside of my card using one of the sentiments included in the set … I added apples on either side of the strip of paper which makes it look a little like a table.


My second project today uses the new Strawberry carton & strawberries template which is also being released today …. this is sooooooo much fun to create! You will find a tutorial on how to create this using the cricut & Make The Cut on Jody's blog.


This template comes to you with a variety of formats including:

  • PDF – for traditional print and cut
  • Ai (Adobe Illustrator) and DXF – used by Pazzles, KNK, and Wishblade Machines
  • GSD – for Silhouette
  • SVG - for Cricut with Make the Cut or Sure Cuts A lot software

As I have a cricut expressions and the Sure Cuts A lot software I was able to use those to cut out both my carton and my strawberries.


I created my strawberries using the same designer paper I used to create my card above … I had to make a special trip to get more DP hehe. To finish off my strawberries I used a cuttlebug flower die for the top which I cut from My Favorite Felt - Outdoor Essentials - and a green button and ribbon which I just knotted. These strawberries look great just as decorations or you could put a little something into the strawberries if you wanted.

Well now it is time to say goodbye to me and hop on over to the marvellously talented Michele Boyer's blog to see what she has created.

Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for dropping by!
