It's been awhile since I have created a card. Do you find that when you have been away from creating that it takes some time to get focused again? I sure did. It felt like I forgot how to create! But, I do have a card to share with you.
The Kind & Cozy stamp set from Stampin' Up reminds me of a picnic on a warm summer day. Because the weather has been so nice, I thought that it would be fun to make a card to match the weather.
Although the 4th of July has come and gone, I am still in the mood for patriotic colors. And, they fit with the "picnic" theme.
Did you notice the strip of homemade washi tape? I stamped an image from the Tape It stamp set on Cardstock Vellum and cut it out with my Snips. Look closely and I think you can tell that it is the top banner with the chevron pattern.
A word of caution. Be sure to use the Heat Gun on setting 1 to dry the ink. If you don't, you might find that your ink will smear. Ask me how I know!
