Vintage Picnic Christmas


It's Christmas in July! I recently got this wonderful set from PTI, Vintage Picnic. It has a variety of basket stamps, and a variety of stuff to put IN the baskets--something for every conceivable occasion! I loved this set the minute I saw it. Here I stamped my basket on SU Creamy Caramel and colored the details with my Stampin' Pastels and blender pens. Stamped the Christmas things on white, colored, then adhered the basket under them. You can stamp the basket on the same piece of CS as the contents; if you do this Nichole recommends stamping the contents first then the basket for ease of alignment. I tried it that way and it works beautifully. I used PTI Ripe Avocado for the card base and embossed it with the holly CB folder. The layers were die cut with Nestabilities--I just love those things, it's the easiest way to make your card look more professional. The DP is PTI Bitty Boxes. Ribbon and button are PTI. Hope you've enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed creating. Happy Stamping!
