Nautical Father's Day - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #29

Hey friends! It's Christy here with a nautical-themed Father's Day card for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #29! This time we've got a gorgeous inspiration board that is sure to get your creative juices flowing!

One of my favorite images for masculine cards is the lighthouse, especially for dads, who are a beacon of wisdom and love. So I decided to create my card using Life Is Good and Dad + Me. I colored my images with Copics and trimmed them out with the matching dies. Then I used Ocean Wave Borders to cut down some Mermaid and Blue Jay cardstock to set the scene.

I die cut the entire panel with the Large Stitched Scalloped Ovals and created a mat as well with white cardstock, then added the whole thing on top of some Really Rainbow 6x6 paper. To finish things off, I added a dab of Crystal Stickles to the light inside the lighthouse.

Happy crafting!

Owl Mama - Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #28

Hey friends, today I'm sharing a sweet Mother's Day card for our current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. This time we're doing one of my favorite type of challenges -- the card sketch!

For my card, I colored in my owls and tree stump from Mom + Me with Copic markers, and die cut them with the matching dies. Then I created a background scene with some pale blue cardstock and a Stitched Hillside Border in green.

I trimmed down my Perfectly Plaid Spring patterned papers with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables, allowing a bit of the Ballet Slippers cardstock to show through, and cut a window out of it with the Circle Stackables. I created a halo effect by die cutting a ring of Really Rainbow patterned paper, and layering it on the inside of the window, bringing extra attention to the image. Then I popped up that whole panel with foam tape.

To finish things up I added an Everyday Sentiments Banner greeting and a few Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals scattered across.
