Hi! I know Halloween is still a ways away but this cute Lawn Fawn stamp set and slider die were calling to me! I made this card for my brother, who just turned 12, and even he will think my card is ‘cool’! I am posting this card to a Lawnscaping Challenge which can be found here which challenges you to use texture! I’ve added texture in several ways through the use of glitter, embossing powder, patterned paper, and even shiny card stock. 🙂
To make the background I used several pieces of patterned paper by American crafts and cut them down to an A2 size. Using the ‘forest border’ and ‘stitched hillside borders’ dies by Lawn Fawn I cut two of my patterned papers to create my scene. Taking one of the small slider dies I cut my largest panel so that my owl would appear to fly across the night sky. Next I cut shiny gold card stock with a round 1″ punch and adhered it to my background.
I stamped the owl and bunny on Neenah solar white card stock and then colored them both in with copic markers before cutting them out. After I cut out any image I go around the edge with a black Memento marker giving the impression that it is perfectly cut. I stamped the owl again on double sided sticky paper and cut out his mask. The sticky paper has release paper on both the top and bottom, so I removed one side to adhere it to the owl’s original mask. I then removed the release paper from the top of the mask and then covered it in glitter. The particular glitter I used is called Silk Microfine Glitter by Elizabeth Crafts – it is truly super fine and has a beautiful shine to it.
I adhered my bunny to the card and then using a penny and a small amount of foam adhesive attached my owl. The entire panel was them adhered to an A2 card base with foam tape to allow the penny room to move behind the front panel. To finish the card I embossed a sentiment from a new Avery Elle called ‘Merriest’ in Wow orange embossing powder. Oh, and lessons learned…first heat emboss and then add foam tape to the back of the panel! Otherwise your foam tape melts a wee bit!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
