VINTAGE PICNIC shape card


Hello!  I love when I see shape cards while blog hopping!  It's why I bought a few of the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities! So here is one of mine!
I used a Kraft base, then a layer of cherry cobbler.  To get a close match in size, they are cut from the same nestability shape and then carefully trim off the edge.  The dotted paper (My Mind's Eye) is cut from the 2nd size nestie. I didn't want to sew the curves so I used faux stitching with a black marker.  The daisy image was stamped on cream paper (looks white here) and colored.  The picnic basket was stamped on kraft and then colored with copic markers.  I used a white pen on it too.  The disc is raised on dimensionals and then the twine is tied around the whole card.
Of course, I finished by adding stickles (in yellow) to the centers of the flowers.

Gotta run.  Please come back tomorrow~It's the first of a new month so Magnolia-licous will have a BRAND NEW challenge for you!!
Thanks for visiting!!
