Summer Fresh cards

Happy Monday! I was lucky enough to have a three day weekend, so I'm feeling refreshed and ready for a new week!  Today I want to share the first in a series of cards I have made with the Summer Fresh collection from Simple Stories. I am absolutely LOVING this line! I got on a major roll and made a bunch of cards that I want to share with you, but I can't just put them all out at once! I've gotta create some suspence right?!?!

I love how my first card turned out...aren't those strawberry stickers sweet?!? (pun intended) I used burlap to mat the sentiment, it gave the card great texture.

Scrapbooking Cafe Supplies used:
Summer Fresh collection-Simple Stories
Red Twine-Doodlebug
3D adhesives-Scrapbook Adhesived by 3L
Other supplies used:
photo corners
red button
white embroidery floss
felt flower

A funny little story to go with my second card. I used my sewing machine to stich around the paper with the text on it. I decided to add this detail after I had finished the card so I had to be careful to avoid the embellishments with the machine. Well, while I was being so careful, I didn't unfold the card and I ended up sewing it shut! LOL :) Now my card is a little front heavy but I don't think anyone will be able to tell I made a mistake.
