Make the Card Fit Your Scene - Deepest Thanks | ft. Lawn Fawn "You are Sublime" and "Jawsome"


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I'm going to share a fun way to get all the images you want on to a single card. Just make the card bigger!! Sometimes the hardest thing (especially with Lawn Fawn) is getting all the images we want to use on a standard A2 sized card base. These images are so stinkin' cute and their sets coordinate so well that we just don't always have the space we want to make the scene in our heads come to life. So why not make a bigger card? Who says all our cards have to be the standard A2 size?

Today's card is a whopping 9x4" and even then I had to remove a couple from my vision. But hey, it happens. Don't limit yourself, do what makes you happy.


To begin, I cut a piece of 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock to just slightly smaller than my 9x4" card base. I stamped all of my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then masked them off.

Once the masks were all in place, I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blue Print Sketch Distress Inks to create my background, working from top to bottom to get a smooth blend and adding more ink as I went so it would be darker at the bottom.

Once that was completely dry, I removed the masks and coloured all the images using Copic Markers. If I were to go back and do this card again, I think I would have used some of the solid image stamps to create more in the background to give the card some extra depth.

I mounted my panel the front of my card base using my tape runner. Then to finish off the card I used some "Ocean Wave" crystals from Studio Katia to be the bubbles and applied Glossy Accents by Ranger over the windows of the submarine and the visor of the diver.

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 on YouTube. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
