Summer Fun | ft. MFT Stamps "Every Day is a Picnic"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

This morning I was all ready with a second Back to School card for you, then I saw the SSS Monday challenge and my brain just leaped into creative mode overdrive (I assure you, that's a thing), resulting in this card.

You'll get a new Back to School card tomorrow. Probably.

To begin, I stamped the girl from MFT's "Every day is a Picnic" stamp set, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on copic friendly paper. I stamped the sunshine from the same set in a repeating pattern on my panel and coloured all the images in with my Copics.

I used clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on her sandles to give them that sparkly plastic look that I remember from when I was little. I never had a pair, but my friends did and I thought they were the best thing ever.

I covered the background panel with a scrap of vellum to mute out the sunshines because they were super vibrant. The greeting banner was cut from a piece of teal cardstock that matches the boarder layer and a pretty close match to her outfit. The greeting is heat embossed with white.

To finish off the piece I added a scattering of sequins and enamel dots, then adhered the whole lot onto a standard A2 sized card base.

As a special bonus I even did the INSIDE of the card. Wh-aa-tt? Actually, it happens more often than not. I just usually forget to include it in the post.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right so you don't miss out! Toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
