Today I have a card that I made for my sister’s birthday. We celebrated her birthday this weekend at my parents house. Her dog got out and ran away while we were having a fun time. Unfortunately, it put a damper on the partying, but thankfully we found him 20 hours later. Ok, so now to the card! Purple and green have been her favorite colors since she was young so I wanted to use this combination. I used
gnome sweet gnome from Lawn Fawn and colored them using my Prisma colored pencils. The green washi tape and resin flower are from Pick Your Plum!
I’m back with more homemade cards.
The two cards I am going to show you today were created using some of my new Lawn Fawn stamps. If you can’t tell, I love Lawn Fawn.
The first card is a pet sympathy card that I sent my future in laws. Sadly, they had to put their dalmatian down due to old age. She was an awesome dog and I wanted to honor her by making them a fun card. I knew the Lawn Fawn “Critters in the ‘burbs” stamp set would be perfect. I know that dog doesn’t look like a dalmatian, but I though the spots would give a dalmatian effect. I created the spots using my beautiful Prismacolor pencils. I added the fun ball, butterflies, tire swing and snails to create a fun scene to remind the recipient of how much fun they had with the pet. I really wanted this card to show how perfect doggy heaven is :). The tree was created using paper piecing with Anna Griffin and Recollections paper. To finish it off I added some Pick Your Plum washi tape. Don’t you just love those yellow flowers?
The second card is a birthday card for my aunt. I found these beautiful buttons on sale at Target and I just knew I had to create a card with them. Mint green is so popular right now that I wanted to take advantage of it. It reminds me of very yummy sorbet that is perfect for summer. The postcard and sentiment was created using the Lawn Fawn “You’ve got Mail” stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by!
