Exploring Cricut and More - Summer Challenge

Hello Everyone! It's challenge time at Exploring Cricut and More. This time you are to create a card, layout or project with a summer theme using red and blue. 

I was inspired to create a card using this cute ant from Miss Kate Cuttables that was a freebie last week. Isn't he cute? 


I looked through my stash and found some old Creative Memories paper that was cut in a chevron style. I layered that to create the grass. The picnic blanket was created by using an image that came with my Cameo machine and I layered red underneath. 

For the basket, I wanted the woven part to look rough like a basket, so I raised the blade higher so that it wouldn't cut all the way through. I had to pull the rectangles out by hand. Not fun, but I got the look I wanted.

Recipe:
A2 card base
Scrap papers
Picnic Ant - Miss Kate Cuttables
Basket - Silhouette Online Store #44706
Picnic blanket - Woven Star (image that came with machine)
Sentiment - K Andrew Designs

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!!

Annette
