I just love this card... I made it for MFTMFC3 which was to make a Tri-Fold card. This one is a Joy Fold Card - you can find the tutorial HERE. MFT's Who's That Girl images are some of my VERY favorite. This one is from Let's Picnic. It has been monsoon season here in the Northeast, and the thought of a picnic on a sunny summer day is delicious. Maybe some day the sun will come out!!!
The base of my card is black. I used some red paisley paper for the left panel from Creative Memories that I have had stashed away for a long time ~ very picnic-y! The red check paper is also CM. The gray is from SU's Walk in the Park DSP, as is the DSP matted on the More Mustard panel. I paper pieced the dress on the WTG image and colored her skin with Copics. I used CM shiny silver paper for the plate, and I used COPICS to color the food and wine bottle which I cut out, glued and applied liquid glass for shine. The blade of the knife is colored with a silver Zig Painty. The sun was made with MFT's Build a Bouquet set. I stamped a circle with Barely Banana, stamped a flower image on top with Summer Sun and then punched it with a circle punch. I stamped the flower image again and cut it out to make the sun's rays. The scalloped oval is Garden Green.
The left corners are punched with the ticket corner punch. I adhered white brads with glue dots. I did not want the brads to show on the inside, so I clipped the posts of the brads with a craft clipper and glued them on with glue dots. Wishing you sunshine in your summer days...
