Let's do Lunch

After running errands and catching up with my back log of emails, I finally sat down and stamped today. I am so glad that I left the house clean and the laundry done before we left on vacation. It made my return home more pleasant. There's nothing like coming home from a restful vacation to have chores to do.

My card today is for some friends I am inviting to lunch. Since I will be making a few of these, I wanted to keep it simple. It took me 30 minutes to figure out what I wanted and complete the card. I hope after this post, I will be able to make a few more before my arm gets tired. These days my arm has been feeling as if I have been working out. The pain has subsided but, it's still sore.

The food basket and sentiment comes from the Papertray Ink. The set I am using is called Vintage Picnic. I purchased this set at CHA and I never got the chance to play with it. I guess I'm still catching up. I love this set. It has 5 baskets, 8 images for the inside of the basket, 4 small images and 9 sentiments. What I like about this set is that you can mix and match the images to your style.Since I was going with a picnic style I wanted my DS paper to look like a real picnic blanket. I had the perfect paper! It's from Basic Gray June Bug Paper Pad. For my embellishment, I added some stitching (a blanket needs some stitching) and a simple ribbon.

Now here's how I made my basket...I stamped my basket on the DS paper and cut it out. Then I stamped the food on whisper white cs. I used my Copic markers to color the food. For lid on the jar, I added gold glitter pen. I then stamped the cloth and layered it over the basket. Before putting my pieces together I stamped the food on the very vanilla card stock. Finally, I put all the pieces together and propped up the bread and grapes so they looked 3 dimensional. A simple Let's do lunch sentiment and done!

Now, time for me to make a few more of these cards! Thanks for looking and come back soon!

Today's card was created with: Stampin' Up! Basic Gray and Very Vanilla card stock, Basic Gray June Bug Paper Pad, Papertry Vintage Picnic stamp set, Copic markers, ribbon and sewing machine.
