Vintage Picnic



When was the last time you went on a honest to goodness picnic? It has been a long time for me. Matter of fact, when I tried to think of the last time I couldn't even come up with a time! :-( I definitely need to rectify that situation! I saw this paper used recently in one of my card magazines. It brought to mind those vintage picnic tins. It also brought back fond memories of my lunch box in grade school. As I write this, that
70's lunch box is sitting on my bookcase! The image and sentiment from Papertrey Ink lend themselves perfectly to this paper. To achieve this look, I actually stamped the image twice, once on the cardstock for coloring and again on the pattern paper. I then cut out the stamped image from the pattern paper and applied it over the stamped image on my cardstock. Voila, a beautiful, dimensional image... Here's to summer and picnics! Enjoy!
