|On A Picnic card inspired by the PFP challenge Check It Out!|
The red and green checked papers came from the Riverside Revels paper stack from Dovecraft and I really love the red check paper because it's printed on canvas so has great texture which I accentuated by distressing the edges with a craft knife - it reminds me of a picnic blanket and I think it goes brilliantly with the picnic themed stamp set. The green plaid hill and sky paper came from a Travel themed scrapbook paper stack by DCWV which I've had for donkey's years. I just drew a curved hill top and cut it out with scissors. The main image and picnic basket were coloured in using ProMarkers and then I fussy cut both images out and arranged as shown. I used some foam tape to raise the picnic basket off the card. I used a 'hello' die from Clearly Besotted Stamps to die cut the word out twice, once in black and once using a scrap of metallic blue card I had left over from another project. I layered the two together slightly off set to give a shadow effect and stuck it down using Tattered Lace Detail glue. I made a 6.5" square card blank out of two sheets of A4 kraft card (one sheet was cut to 6.5" square and the other was cut to 7" x 6.5" and scored 0.5" in on the longest side to form a hinge which I stuck to the back of the 6.5" panel).

I hope you like my latest card, it's quite simple but I'm not keen on making heavily embellished cards. I'll be making a matching envelope using my WRMK envelope punch board assuming it goes up to 6.5" square envelopes - I shall have to check. Please feel free to comment in the usual places if you have any questions and until next time - keep crafting!
Love and crafty hugs,
