...big berry

Good evening...more visual 'elevator music' for you, I'm still shipping orders and I'm way behind with shipping notes etc, but I had this card ready and thought I'd pop it up.

It's a standard size 4.25 by 5.5 inch card and yep, that's a big berry! It's from the Pre-order set Big Berries - Strawberry that will ship mid July. Lots of peeps have already ordered this and so it's the least I can do to show you what it looks like and get some ideas together so that when you get your berries, you are good to go!

In the next few days I'll be making the cut files available for this and the Jar fillers set  Jam Packed, the sentiment and label shape are both from Jam Packed and I used little cut files to trim out both the Strawberry and the label. these are a lot of fun, but I really gots to go get those envelopes out that door...back soon for a chat!

For the strawberry I found it easiest to stamp the stalk first, with the clear stamps, and a dark background it is easy to line up the image on a strawberry shape made with a cut file.

hope it tickles!


  1. LOVE!!!!! I am ordering this, I know I haven't yet, but I am (I just gotta pay some bills first! LOL)

  2. Gorgeous Claire, I love that big berry, and the crazy stitching!

  3. Eeek...that berry..those papers...the stitching! Love it!

  4. Wow, I had no idea it was so big! I can't wait to get mine and play! :)

  5. Looks good enough to eat! I'm looking forward to playing with mine when it arrives.

  7. I'm so glad I ordered this set...looking forward to my berry arriving!!

  8. Love all your stuff Claire. But I have a dumb question. How do you use a cut file? And what machine? I have a cricut but am not familiar with what you are doing. Any help would be appreciated. Or direct me to a video or anything. Thanks.
