Caly’s Adorable Build-A-House Card

Hi Friends! This is Caly and I’m sharing a card for our current challenge (#65) – Fun with Dies! I’ve combined several dies for my card today to create a Build-A-House Christmas Reveal Wheel card.

The background of my card today uses the Snow Day Remix Petite Paper Pack. I love the little bunnies and trees on this card. I could cover them up with my house, so what I didn’t use from my page, I fussy cut so I could add to my snowy scene.

I die-cut all of my elements in white and colored cardstock before assembling. The Reveal Wheel is die-cut from the Snow Day Remix paper. I placed my die over the area I wanted to use and traced with a pencil before ink-blended around the top with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink to give it more shading before die-cutting. I did this before instead of after to prevent the harsh edges from ink-blending. I also die-cut the Reveal Wheel Build-A-House Add-On in this step to create the window as well.

Next, I die-cut my Build-A-House and Christmas Add-On elements. I was inspired by my own house colors for this card – light gray with dark window frames and white trim. The Christmas lights are die-cut in white and colored with Copic markers. I also stamped images from Tiny Christmas for my reveal wheel mechanism and the Christmas tree in the lower window of the house using a stamp from the Yeti or Not stamp set.
Copic markers: Browns: E51, E31, E35, E37, E04; Blues: B01, B16, B18; Reds: RV11, R22, R27; Greens: G21, G24, G28; Yellows: Y000, Y08; Gray: C6

After adhering everything to my card and constructing the reveal wheel mechanism, I stamped my sentiments and added foam adhesive to my top panel before sealing the reveal wheel in place. To give my card a bit more interest, I embellished my light bulbs and wreath with some Star Dust Stickles, then added white gel high-lights on my house and added more snowfall to my scene.

I hope you enjoyed this card! Don’t forget the Fun with Dies challenge ends this Sunday, December 1st at 11:59 ET. There’s lots of time to play along so I hope you’re inspired to create!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!


Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 64 – Cards for Guys!

We all know that making cards for guys presents a few creative challenges. So let’s embrace that challenge and use our cardmaking skills to make cards to put a smile on a guy’s face, no matter the age!

We would love for you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 2 weeks and be open until Sunday, November 17th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Now let’s see how our amazing Design Team made their Cards for Guys!

Franci combined the large tree from Christmas Dreams with the snowboarding and popsicle snacking Yeti or Not cutie on her clean and simple design! She added a colorful Offset Sayings: Christmas greeting!

Christy created an amazing underwater Christmas card for her scuba-diving enthusiast brother! She used Christmas Fishes, You Are Sublime and Mermaid for You!

Samantha‘s birthday card features some cool guy-friendly colors to create the inky background for the One in a Chameleon critter! She turned the Leafy Tree Backdrop (die cut from the back side of the Fall Fling 6×6 paper) around to use it on the right side of her card, then she die cut it again from kraft cardstock to layer over the top! She included a Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday sentiment in a Say What? Pets speech bubble.

Jessica‘s Yeti or Not birthday card is fun and cool and perfect for the guys in your life! She created the awesome mini scene with Stitched Mountain Borders!

If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, Karin‘s card is timely inspiration for you! She used images from Smooth Sailing and created a great ocean scene with Tropical Backdrop!

This charming birthday card by Joyce will make anyone’s day! She added a hat from Dad+Me to the character from Screen Time and made a Fall scene using the trees and apples from Tree Before ‘n Afters! The Build-A-House has a fun brick pattern and some friendly birds from Open Me!

Caly‘s Beam Me Up birthday card has a fun interactive element courtesy of the Let’ Toast Pull Tab Add-On! She created an awesome inky backdrop for this outer space scene!

Clearly our Design Team thinks that snowboarding and yetis are perfect for Cards for Guys! Samantha M added her signature style with an ink blended and splattered background and the stripey accent of black and white! She resisted the pull to add sequins or glitter to keep this fun design guy-friendly!

Jenn‘s Ready Set Snow snow globe design has just enough sparkle to suggest snow but she kept this card clean, simple and colorful! She used a mix of Lawn Fawn ink in Merman, Cilantro and Minty Fresh to create the background. Her snowmen are stamped with River Rock ink for a toned down look!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 63 tomorrow!
