You can plan a BBQ even if it’s not your birthday though! Celebrate Summer with a fun scene card!
I cut a white piece of card-stock 4.25 in. x 11 in., scored and folded it for a top fold card base. Top fold cards are the easiest to photograph and another photo tip, if you’re using natural light, be sure to pull up the blinds! Open blinds let in light but you’ll be amazed how much better it is when you pull them all the way up and out of the way! Your camera will thank you! lol
oops! Got off track there for a minute, back to the card!
I die cut the Circle Forest Scene parts from cold press watercolor paper. Then I watercolored them, the grass/trees with Peerless and the grill, houses and clouds with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens.
The little curvy fence is from the Wide Open Spaces Open Studio die set. I just trimmed off the bottom…perfect fit!
I wish I’d used the Celebrate from this set because it’s just enough larger. I didn’t see it until I’d already stamped this one from poppystamps Into the Words set. ‘It’s your birthday’ is from the same set.
I die cut a circle frame to place over the top from the Shaker Circle Frames die set.
Well, I see I goofed. The Grill has been discontinued!!! I wouldn’t have thought… so think bicycle or golf cart or even the new tractor die! Sorry about that!
All that’s left to do is layer everything up! I use ATG, Tombow mono multi glue, thin and regular 3L/Scrapbook Adhesives mounting squares.
Happy Summer day to you! Hope the weather is treating you right! haha Thanks for stopping by! TTUL!
