The strawberries and leaves are die cut from white card stock. At first glance one might think that the edges are inked with a very dark ink. In fact I made 1/16 inch mats for them using the Silhouette.
To make the banners, I used the Silhouette to cut the words "PICKING" and "DIPPING" from black card stock. I then used one of La La Land Crafts' Long Flags to die cut while centering the titles.
FYI: this basket of strawberries weighs a ton. There are so many layers here. The basket is a die-cut - double thickness - and a mat which is also a die cut. All of this coupled with strawberries and leaves makes for a sturdy addition to this layout.
These enamel dots are part of a collection specifically made for this paper line from Carta Bella.
As soon as I saw the pictures from the strawberry field, I went on-line searching for a cute image to color for a layout. This little sweetie was released in July of 2015. I was able to find a new, never-used stamp on ebay.
