BSS MONDAY IDEA - Summertime

 Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week we are ushering in summer with a bright fun card with
a beautiful picnic scene.

Card size is 6x4 1/2 inches side folded
Stamps - Cling Picnic Spread (CRP266) Stampendous
Inside Sentiment - Summer-(E3927) PrintWorks
Paper, Red, yellow and white cardstock.
Embossing folder- Darice Basket Weave
Die Cut Oval - Spellbinders - (S-5022) Labels Ten
Flowers are tiny punches from my stash
Center of flowers are flower soft yellow
Leaves are a Martha Stewart punch
Gingham Ribbon and paper strip on inside

 I cut the mat (51/2x4 inches) from yellow cardstock
which I had embossed and then swiped a light brown
distress ink across the mat lightly to highlight the embossing.

I colored the image with Copics, cut it out with the
fourth die in the set (starting from the smallest)
I then made a frame with the red card stock by inserting
that die into the next largest die and cutting 
with my die cut machine. Taped the frame to the cutout scene
on the back and adhered the framed image to the
embossed mat. 

Happy Sunny Summer Days!
Thanks for stopping by.
Until later...........
