Summer Picnic Waterfall Card

What comes to mind when you think about a summer picnic? I always think of watermelon and cheap plastic red gingham tablecloths and a BBQ grill. It was fun to pull out a stamp set that had these picnic images and put them together for a special card. I used this exclusive Waterfall Card Set from Creative Cuts and More and let me tell you - it was SO easy to put this together.

I really don't like numbers and measuring and cutting and scoring. CC&M made this so easy because everything is already cut to the perfect size and all the parts are scored just right. I don't have to think if this is too big or that score line is 1/8" off. It's great to have all that taken care of so I don't give myself a headache. :-)

To put this waterfall card together, I followed the tutorial on their website HERE. That tutorial really helped me understand what goes where, and all I had to do was stamp and color my images for the four panels.

I had stamped the red gingham "tablecloth" directly on the waterfall card mechanism, and then I smudged and made a big boo-boo. Grrrrrrrrrr. So I stamped it again on a sheet of white paper, and then cut it to size to cover up my boo-boo. It's a quick and easy fix for those inevitable boo-boo's that we always seem to make at just the wrong moment. LOL
