So I didn’t think I would have time the rest of this year to make a card but I was wrong. I came down with the flu despite getting the flu shot this year so I tried to stay away from people as much as possible while I was trying to recover. It kind of sucks because it is the Christmas season but I think it’s better that I keep my germs to myself.
I haven’t done a Lawn Fawnatics Challenge for a while and I saw their current challenge was,” Use Your Favorite Lawn Fawn” set so I had to jump in on the challenge.
I had a hard time deciding which stamp set to use!! I narrowed it down to Mermaid For You, Happy Howlidays, Snow Day, Out Of This World, and Rooting For You. I decided on Rooting For You because I haven’t used it as much as the others.
This is what I came up with:
I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Pop Up Die to make my box card base. If you’re unfamiliar with this die, you can check out my video below:
I assembled the base then decided to mattes and panels for the box card. If you would like the measurements that I used, you can check out this blog post here.
The patterned paper I used were from DCWV The Playtime Stack and DCWV Confetti Paper Pad.
I originally put 3 slats in my box card but I only ended up using 2 for the design.
For the background I ink blended Distress Inks Evergreen Bough, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass.
For all the root vegetables I used the following inks:
-Lawn Fawn: Lobster, Noble Fir, Celery Stick, Freshly Cut Grass, Jalapeno, Ballet Slipper, Sugarplum, Fresh Lavender, Butter, Carrot, Fake Tan.
-Mama Elephant Moonlight
-Hero Arts Intense Black
I used Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Borders and die cut 3 hillsides and roughly sponged them with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I adhered them into my box card with my Zig Two Way Glue Pen.
I adhered the vegetables to the hills and propped the front watering can and radish up with scrap pieces of acetate. I also glued an extra radish and turnip to the back of the card as a little decorative element.
I finished up the card my heat embossing the sentiment, “have an upbeet day”, with Ranger White Superfine Detail Embossing Powder. I didn’t use this embossing powder for any particular reason, I reached for white embossing powder in my drawer and this is the first one that I grabbed so I decided to use it.
