Floral Congrats Card

Hi there! I wanted to pop in and share a colorful, floral congrats card with you today!

This card features Lawn Fawn's Fab Flowers, Big Scripty Words, and Dotted Circle Stackable. I also used a ton of different LF inks: Wild Rose, Ballet Slippers, Celery Stick, Freshly Cut Grass, Sunflower, Carrot, Fresh Lavender, Grape Soda, and Jet Black Ink. I started by stamping and die cutting the different flowers and leaves, as well as the sentiment. Then, I cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than the card base and die cut a circle in the middle. I die cut another circle and made it into a frame. Then I used foam tape to attached the white cardstock panel and the sentiment, so there's lots of dimension around the sentiment. This turned out so pretty and I can't wait to make more with different sentiments!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! :)

CardMaps Sketch

Hi everyone! Can you believe that it's already August?! Where has the summer gone? We're trying to fit in a few more family activities before the school year starts again! Do you have anything fun planned for the rest of the summer?

This month, the Lawn Fawn team partnered with PageMaps to share some card sketch inspiration! You can find a full list of cards under the CardMaps tab. I used the sketch shown above to create this card:

For the background, I inked a piece of white cardstock with Mermaid, Fish Tank, Walnut, and Doe ink. Then, I used the Stitched Windy Backdrop to make the background look like waves, and also the Stitched Outside In Circle Stackables to frame the sentiment. The images are from Mermaid For You and are all colored with Copic Markers. I added some bubbles stamped in Fish Tank ink, and a few blue embellishments that I had in my craft stash.

Thanks for stopping by! And if you're ever stumped on what to create, check out the different sketches available on the PageMaps page! :)
