I’m finally getting back into the swing of card making again after my first trimester hiatus and I have an overwhelming number of things on my desk that I need to use due to Black Friday, Christmas, and Boxing Day sales. A great motivation for me to really get back into card making is the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. Realistically, you just have to spend a few minutes a day colouring but I’d rather just share my finished card!

Also, I’m making this card for the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge. Lawn Fawn is celebrating its 10th birthday so this weeks challenge theme is birthdays!
Hero Arts had their 45th Year Anniversary September of last year and released a an adorable rhino collaborative stamp set with Lawn Fawn. This is what I came up with:
I started out this card by stamping some of the images from the Big Thanks stamp set, as well as the tree from Critters On The Savanna stamp set, and the large rock from Mermaid For You.
I used the following Copic Markers:
Rhino: C5, C3, C1, W0, R22, R20, 0
Clouds: B00, 0
Rocks: W5, W3
Tree: E37, E33, YG17, YG13
Grass: G99, G94, G24, G21
Birds: B02, B00, Y06

This card has 3 slats. The green panels were stamped with MFT’s Cactus Dye Ink using MFT’s Etched Tribal Background Stamp. The yellow panels were ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold, and Mustard Seed. Then I used MFT’s Radiating Rays Stencil and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink to create the sun rays.
I assembled the interior of my card by gluing the pieces directly to the slats or adhering them onto card stock or acetate tabs and gluing them to the slats.
For my sentiment, I used, “Have A Wild Birthday”, from the Lawn Fawn Wild For You Stamp set. It was stamped with Versafine Ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
I finished up the card by adding a bird, rock, and grass to the writing space on the back.
