Hello everyone! Welcome to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #64! This round is all about creating cards for the men in our life. This was the perfect opportunity for me to work on a card I'd been envisioning in my head for months now: my brother's Christmas card! My brother is a certified scuba diver and diving instructor. And he likes to call his lovely new bride his "mermaid."
So I pulled together images from Christmas Fishes with Mermaid for You and You are Sublime. I colored everything in with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.
Then I created a background with Distress Oxide inks, starting from the bottom with Gathered Twigs, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, and Blueprint Sketch. I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it up with a paper towel to give it a bit more interest. I trimmed the panel down with a Stitched Rectangle Stackables and then adhered all the images with foam tape.
I created a card base with Cilantro cardstock and layered two patterned paper prints from the Snow Day Remix 6x6 pad over top. Then I added my focal panel with more foam tape, since I'll be hand-delivering this card, all that dimension won't be a problem.
I finished off the card with a little Crystal Stickles and some stamping on the inside, which you can check out in the video.
