Life is a Picnic

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for visiting my blog!  This is my first project as a design team member at Heart2Heart Challenges and this week's theme is "Life is a Picnic".  The inspiration for my card comes from my two four pawed babies Tinkerbell and Sephora.  I watch them every morning basking in the sun on the grass and think to myself, "Life is a Picnic" with these two.

I created this card using the Cricut Design Space and Cricut Explore.  I used the Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge along with a couple of images that I purchased through Cricut Design Space.  If you are a Cricut Explore user, a link to the design space project file is listed below.

The card was created using the "Inlay Technique", this means that the pieces I used are imbedded on the card to make the different pieces flush to the surface.  With the exception of the grass and the dog, all the pieces are inlaid.

I recommend using CTMH Liquid Glass or Bonding Memories glue pen to adhere the layers and 3-D Foam tape to give the accent dimensions. Feel free to add your own touch to this fun and easy card.
