Squeeze in a Picnic This Summer!

Hello friends!  It's DT Vicki here with another fun CAS creation to share with you today!
Nothing says SUMMER like a nice cool glass of lemonade, but I really like a good picnic during the Summer as well, so I thought I'd sort of combine the two together to create this card:
Don't you just love this month's new release?!  I think they're great for making up some fun Summer type cards!  I have used the newly released "Squeezed" clear stamp set and coordinating dies on this card and colored them in with my copic markers.  I have added a touch of glitter to portions of the lemons and lemonade and then arranged them and glued them onto the fun red and white gingham pattern paper.  

To make the "checkered table cloth", I have cut the paper off in a triangle shape and then on two of the edges, I used the Whimsy Shapeology Basic Border Trio Dies to cut the design.  I then used the Stitched Border Trio Dies to make the stitch lines above the die cut edges.

Before attaching the picnic/lemonade arrangement to the card base, I took some tumbled glass distress ink and the ink foam blending tool to create a light background.  I added some foam tape to the picnic/lemonade arrangement and attached to the center of the card.

Lastly, I've stamped the sentiment in black at the top, rounded two of the corners with my corner chomper and added some enamel dots from the newly released "It's a Party" enamel dot pack.

I hope you've enjoyed my Summer creation today!
Thanks for stopping in!
