Since CHA is going on right now there are all sorts of fun events going on at the 2Peas Online Summer CHA Social, like chats and GG challenges, and several free kits were released this week by the digital designers.
I thought this Picnic freebie by Kerry Stewart would be perfect for a set of cards, which is one of the challenges.
I resized the digital paper from 12" x 12" to 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" in Word to shrink the pattern down to card size and also keep the pretty border. The watermelon I resized to 3" x 1 1/2" but there is some air around the image so when cut out they're more like 2 1/2" long.
I've stepped this out before on the blog, and here it is again. To make the fruit sparkle, paint a thin coat of Mod Podge over the fruit then sprinkle with Martha Stewart Crystal Coarse Glitter and let dry.
I found a pack of the Martha Stewart doilies (labeled Lace Tags) at Michaels that everyone is altering these days. I thought the watermelons would look cute on doilies and the picnic blanket. I used sentiments from Hero Arts All Occasion Messages clear set.
And here is a close up of one of the finished cards.
Thanks for stopping by.
