A soft breeze, the gentle buzz of bees in the distance, the smell of grass and flowers wafting through the air…none of those things are actually featured in this collection from Stacey Yacula but they are all there, just the same. Some woodland creatures sharing a lazy afternoon epitomize all the best things about a summertime picnic. You’ll find a basket overflowing with goodness, a juicy watermelon with the first couple of slices carves out, a beautiful tree to set the scene, and an inviting picnic to sit upon as they enjoy their lunch. Sentiments include options for recognizing birthdays and friendship. The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

Surprise! This interactive design delivers so many exciting applications. Hide a special handwritten note, stamped sentiment or image, or tuck a gift card behind the slider panel to combine your gift and card into one easy piece. The scored top panel offers space to create a small scene or prop up an adorable character while the inner panel provides the mechanism to slide the panel up into a tent shape revealing the surprise inside. Endless opportunity awaits!

Use the Mini Square Shaker Window & Frame to create diminutive shaker windows for your cards and tags. The 1/8" frame can be used to accent the window, finishing off the shaker design beautifully. Trim a single pouch from the Square Trio Shaker Pouches to fill this design.
