Today brings another Challenge Up Your Life challenge. This week the theme is food/treats. If you’d like to join the challenge, just click here.
And here’s the card I made in honor of the occasion:
I don’t know about you, but I love picnics. I haven’t been on one in a very long time, though, and this card is making me want to pack a basket right now.
The card is part of a kit by SVGCuts…they’ve got some great card-in-a-box cut files. I cut the base from Crumb Cake card stock and the balance was either print and cut or cut from scraps…I’ve got lots of scraps, so I’m always glad when I can use them.
The grapes were made using the Red Jewel Bling Sheet from Eyelet Outlet. I wanted to make them a bit darker, so I coated them with a dark red Copic marker. And the flower centers are small pearls, also from Eyelet Outlet, are colored with a yellow Copic marker. Finishing touches include a bow on the basket handle and Wink of Stella on the wine.
And here’s another look down into the box, so you can see the inserts. Now that I look at it again, I think this picnic basket could do with a plate of cheese right there next to the wine. There’s room for it and it would certainly pair well with the wine and grapes, don’t you think.
Once again I want to remind you to check in on the challenge and link up for food/treats themed project…and good luck!
