eat me.

Did you see my friend Nina designed a few sets with Avery Elle?  I am playing around with Simply Tags: Everyday and Texture Tiles: be cool.

eat me.

I doubled-up on tags and created gingham out of the striped image for a sweet, county-picnic look.

eat me.

I just loved that fork and knife image for the moment I saw it!  And, paired with the picnic basket? perfection.

eat me.

To create the border around the gingham circle, I simply traced it in pencil, curved the greeting slightly and stamped away.  Just remember to erase the pencil when you're done - I can't tell you how many times I've sat down to edit card pictures and only then noticed that the pencil line is still there...grrrr....

Nina generously turned my card design into a sketch for you:


I've never designed a sketch before - thank you, Nina!  By the way, did you know that Nina is one of the Paper Craft Gallery Idol finalists?  Check out her blog post here, and then go vote for your favorite!
