Life’s A Picnic


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month Shirley Quarry brings us another fun challenge.

Shirley has challenged us to create a card or project using “It's a picnic” theme.

This week I have created another pop up card using Karen Burniston’s Pop N Cuts Dies from Sizzix. Of course how can you have a picnic without ants … so I have dug up a few of my Rubbernecker ants from my stash.


I used the Pop N Cuts base with the Circle Label insert to create my pop up card. For my picnic basket I shortened the handle as it was too big for my card and it looks more like picnic basket this way.


I created a floating floor to my card so I could add the ant and the big sub and bottles …. I found a template to do this on Karen Burniston’s blog.


These ants look like they are having lots of fun at this picnic … don’t you think!


Here is another view of my pop up card so you can see ants in the background etc.

Frances, this is the MOST fabulous card!! I love all the ants, and the inside is such a surprise! Anyone who gets this card will leave it out all should be seen! P.S. I love the RED checkered cloth! That really says picnic to me!

What a totally fun picnic card - I knew it had to be yours as soon as I saw the dimension. I have to say that I don't recall ants as being a big feature of picnics here - more like wasps! But on a card, they can be cute and fun :D.
