Let's Do Lunch with the CottageCutz Ice Cream Parlor Set

When was the last time you had lunch with a friend? This is one of my favorite things to do. It seems like our lives are so busy these days that we overlook a lot of those important relationships in our lives. So, set a goal to call a favorite friend or family member and spend the afternoon getting caught up over lunch. Who wouldn't love to get this fun cheery card in the mail inviting you to lunch?

I used the CottageCutz Ice Cream Parlor Set die. Each chair punches out in its entirety with a few pieces you need to put together for your table. I've shown below what the actual die looks like. This die is great to use those Quickutz Adhesive backed sheets with. I just ran my die through my Revolution with adhesive backed white cardstock and then took my metallic silver marker and colored in the legs of the table then peeled them off and stuck them on the card. For the chair seats and the red background on the table I just cut some red pieces and glued them over the white ones on the chairs and tucked the red table under the white one.

Then I lightly chalked the edge of the table and took my red and green Stickles and made a cherry on the table to match my background paper. "Let's do Lunch" was cut from the Quickutz Banana Split 4x8 Alphabet.

If you haven't tried these CottageCutz dies yet now is a great time. These dies are custom made especially for The Scrapping Cottage and are high quality dies made in the U.S.
