This card reminds me that summer is just about over really – and it’s been fun. Well it could have been even more fun if the lovely weather had lasted a little longer, but we have had some seriously tasty strawberries and soft fruit this year so maybe I’ll focus on the good things!
Whether you are making a card for a summer birthday or any other season, strawberries are always a smiley image for me. They remind me of long summer days, Wimbledon, holidays and cream teas – all lovely things to think about!
The main image on this card comes from the One Summer’s Day CD, which contains the artwork of Barbara Mock. The jam jar is stamped, there are lots of jar stamps that have been produced over the past years, or you could try just cutting a jar shape freehand, it’s not too hard.
The combination of a doily, pretty ribbon and strawberries is always going to be a winner!
