Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today I am super excited to share with you a tutorial video and card using the new Lawn Fawn Pivot Pop-Up Die set, as well as a couple of their new stamp sets from the spring 2018 release.
I know I've been sharing a lot of Lawn Fawn lately, and I really do try to mix it up with other brands, but I'm in Lawn Fawn mode right now. Their images just make me so happy and we can use some happy here in Calgary; it is so snowy and yuck! I'm soooo done with winter, but Mother Nature seems to have other plans - most of which include record levels of snowfall. UGH!
Check out the video for the complete tutorial on how to put this card together, as well as how I coloured all the images.
For the outside of the card, I stamped this little duck from "Lucky Duck", the flight trail and the dragonfly from "Toadally Awesome" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock then coloured them with Copic markers.
I adhered the panel to a piece of soft blue cardstock and mounted that to the front of my top folding standard A2 sized card base.
For the inside of the card, I stamped all the images with Memento ink on the same paper and used the Brother 2 Scan N Cut to cut them all out. I coloured each of them with Copic markers and ran them through my sticker maker to get adhesive on the back.
For the top background of the card base I used a piece of blue paper and adhered some die cut stitched clouds and the sun so it wouldn't look so plain.
For the pop-up I used Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress ink to create my sky, and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress ink for the grass.
Once I had the mechanism put together (see the video on how I did that) I mounted all my images in place.
For the sentiment I used part from the "Lucky Duck" stamp set and "teacher" from the "A Good Apple" set.
This card is going to my daughter's kindergarten teacher - who is super awesome.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook, and now on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think!
