When I heard the theme was picnic, I knew immediately the stamp I wanted to use. Mindy with you today, sharing my picnic themed card.
I ordered the Gazebo 'Try' Fold card by Art Impressions last year, and have only used it a few times. Although it can be used for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays, I thought it would be great promoting a summer picnic. The instructions included with the stamp, are to make a card that has three sections of stamping, that when folded together, makes a wonderful interactive card. This time I only wanted to make a one-layer card, to show the entire scene on the front of the card.
After coloring with my markers, I trimmed around the entire image, added a border of red card stock and trimmed again. I added dimension to the sign on the easel with Joy! Large Foam Pads, and even more dimension with some clear adhesive on the sign, balloons, and flower pot.
I embossed a rectangle of Kraft colored stock with the Bricks and Bark M-Bossabilities by Spellbinders, and attached it to the front of my card. I then adhered the picnic scene to the card front to complete my card.
