Lifes a Picnic Pocket ~ Our Craft Lounge

Hi there!
Here we are in a new week, busy, busy, busy! I scheduled another epidural steroid shot....ugh...I must be nuts. You take them in a series of 3 though, 1 every 2 weeks...did I say ugh? Yeah, I know, they are helping me, but, still.

Today I'm showing you a card I made with the new Life's a Picnic stamp set by Our Craft Lounge. This is a CUTE set, love those little grinning ants!

I made a pocket card for a gift card holder. You can attach it to the pull out card by cutting small slits in diagonal corners to slip the gift card into. I thought a sweet treat gift card from Baskin Robbins or some other sweet treat establishment would be perfect!

I added Glossy Accents to the cherry for some shine.

My friend HB commented on how she mixed some Sparkly Fluff to get a color she needed, so, I gave it a try. The Appletini green was too bright for the distressed colors I used here so I mixed some Brown Sugar with the Appletini Green and got the perfect celery-ish green!
Supplies: Stamps - OCL Life's a Picnic. Paper - Confetti tan, red, & GP white cardstock & Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety paper. Ink - Ranger Distress Walnut Stain, Copic markers. Acces. - Appletini Green & Brown Sugar Sparkly Fluff, ribbon, Glossy Accents, button, brown twine. Tools - Scalloped edge, scalloped circle punches, small oval punch, tab punch, Round-it-all, tiny attacher, Spellbinders classic scalloped rectangles large, Scor-Pal, blending tool.
I turned around and saw that Bunchie took over my newspaper basket, when there is something new or different around, cats always have to check it out, she looks very happy!
I hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
