Christy has a fun post to share with us today! Prepare to be inspired!
Hey crafty friends! It’s Christy here with a super cute birthday card to go along with our first challenge! I can’t believe that Lawn Fawn is seven this month! I’ve been a fan from the very beginning.
One of my favorite things about Lawn Fawn is that their images work so well together! You can pretty much combine images from any set, old or new, and they will play so nicely together. For today’s card I used Hang In There, Critters In The Jungle, Party Animal, and Happy Summer. Can you spot all four sets?
I colored my images with Copic markers, making sure to add lots of different greens to my leaves to really give it that authentic jungle feel. I knew I wanted to create a recessed window using the Echo Park Jungle Safari 6×6 patterned paper, so I die cut the outside with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and the inside with the Stitched Journaling Card Lawn Cuts. I added a second print inside the window, then layered everything with foam tape to give it dimension. For my sentiment, I stamped “happy birthday” onto a third, woodgrain pattern and die cut that with the Everyday Sentiment Banners to make it look like a sign.
For the inside of my card, I took the sloth image as well as an additional sentiment from Hang In There and stamped them both in Noble Fir ink. I always like to carry a bit of the fun from the outside onto the inside to really finish things off!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a great weekend and find time to create something new for our first Lawn Fawnatics Challenge!
