Today’s 3rd post, I’ve come back with strength ūüôā

Here I have the birthday card I made for my brother using Lawn Fawn products. I wanted it to look like you are watching Nessy through the window from the inside of your house and then when you open the card, you can see the outside of the house and the landscape with Nessy.

First, I stamped Nessy, the party hat, and the little ship from “Lovable Legends” stamp set with Versafine onyx black ink on Bristol paper, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut them. Then I die cut twice the window from some white cardstock using the “Wonderful window” die. This die is incredible! I love it!! Next, I made a hole in the card base and in the front patterned paper slightly smaller than the window outline. I placed the pattern paper (American Crafts “Lovely Day” collection by Dear Lizzy) in the front of the card base and glued one of the window die cuts. Then I stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink and with Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink. For the curtains, I used tissue paper and a thin strip of kraft paper.

Now let’s go to the inside!

I cut stripes of kraft cardstock to make the wood cover for the house, glued them to the inside of the card, and then glued the other window die cut. I colored red the flowerpot with alcohol markers and added tons of glossy accents to make it look like a ceramic flowerpot. I also colored the flowers and the grass (die cut with Lawn Fawn “grassy border” die) with alcohol markers and glued everything together.

For the landscape of the inside of the card, I used the negative space of Mama Elephant “Madison Avenue” die. I die cut this piece¬†with Mama Elephant “Ocean wave trio” dies as well as a piece of vellum. I inked the sky with¬†Dried Marigold and¬†Tattered Rose Distress inks, and the sea with¬†Tumbled Glass and¬†Peacock Feathers. The vellum is also colored with¬†Peacock Feathers Distress ink.

Here you can see the ceramic look of the flowerpot in detail

I used Lawn Fawn “Puffy cloud frames” dies to die cut some clouds from white cardstock and vellum. Finally, I glued everything together. To glue the piece of vellum of the sea, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and used Blue Patina¬†Perfect Pearls, because I can’t heat emboss this particular vellum, it warps a lot! Then I applied glue with a glue pen on the backside of the sentiment and also used the ship to glue the vellum piece. ¬†I love the effect of the Perfect Pearls in the sentiment!

I’m entering this last card into Lawn Fawnatics¬†first challenge: happy birthday.








I hope you like the card! Thanks for stopping by!!
