Not Just for Picnic Baskets

My card today, another from Texas, uses the PTI set Vintage Picnic, but rather than using the flower image with any of the baskets included in the set, I decided to think outside the box a little. I really love how this turned out, I just wish I had stamped the flowers a little lower, because there's too much white space and it's a little off balance. But I didn't realize it until I'd finished the card and it had taken me way too long to try and redo it!

It may not look like much, but the reason it took me so long is that I stamped and colored the image again on a scrap and cut out all of those little flowers. I popped them up with the smallest of the Zva Creative adhesive dots. Take a look at the small picture for a close up of the popped up flowers.

The ribbon is PTI white twill colored with a Copic marker. I swear, that's the best trick ever! With the PTI Copic color matches, I'll never need to buy colored twill again! To finish off the card, I stamped one of the sentiments from the With Sympathy set.

Stamps: PTI's Vintage Picnic and With Sympathy
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Paper: PTI white
Other: PTI white twill, Zva Creative adhesive dots


  1. WOWZA Jess! That is Awesome...can't believe you cut all of those out!

  2. This is so pretty! What a great way to think "out of the box" using that set.

  3. So clever! I'm impressed with all the cutting you did on those tulips -- you've got quite a steady hand!

  4. I think it looks great that far up, it's really on cutting all those out, it turned out gorgeous!
