Here's second card of the same design, but this time I stamped the strawberries inside the jar.  To get that full-layered effect with the fruit, I used a masking technique.  I first stamped the strawberries at the top of a Post-It Note and cut it out.  I then stamped the strawberries at the bottom of the jar, covered them up with the Post-It Note mask, and then stamped the strawberries at the top of the jar.  TIP: Keep the Post-It Note mask in the stamp set to use it again!

The watercolor wash background of this card is Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Berry Burst, a lovely, fruity-summer colour combination!

Take a look underneath the words... it's the 1/4" Copper Trim.  To get this mesh-effect, cut a length of the sleek Copper Trim (double what you want the finished size to be), and then tease out the loosely-woven trim to create a lovely background texture.
