Camping in The Great Outdoors


I made this masculine card on Friday evening when I was lucky enough to be invited to stamp with some friends. Angela, the hostess, had kindly prepared a Make & Take for us, which I had intended to follow slavishly, but I fell at the first hurdle (paper trimmer accident!) and came up with this very similar card instead. It’s for a friend’s son, who spends a lot of time camping with the Scouts.  I love that you can use the Fringe Scissors to add interest without femininity.

Inside the card, I stamped a row of ants – because camping wouldn’t be camping without the addition of wildlife. 

Talking of camping, my son spent the other night in the summer house (that’s a shed, not a coastal retreat!) with his friend. All sources of flame were removed as a precaution, but they did cook their own breakfast on a camp stove the following morning. Apparently, as “glamping” goes, it was warm, comfortable, and the neighbour’s cockerels didn’t wake them up early. Success!
