Congrats Card

Hi Everyone! 

Hope your week is going well!  My week is made much better by the warm, sunny weather we're having!  I'm definitely ready for shorts weather!  And the perfect temperatures are making all the more excited for our impending move to Hawaii this summer-- woo! 

I wanted to share a card for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge: embossing.  


Here's my card: 



I embossed the sentiment and speech bubble in black, the rectangle pattern in clear, and I dry embossed the card base with a woodgrain embossing folder.  I started by stamping the rectangle pattern on white cardstock, which was a little dicey since I couldn't see where I was stamping!  After embossing it, I used some distress inks to create an ombre effect over the rectangles.  I added a little strip of patterned woodgrain paper to add some more color and texture to the card.  I then stamped, colored with copics, and die cut the little bird from A Birdie Told Me.  I just love him-- he's so cute and happy :)  Next, I stamped and embossed the speech bubble/sentiment and used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I also die cut another speech bubble from washi paper to add some color and give the speech bubble some dimension: 



I finished the card off with a few die cut Lawn Fawn hearts, which I cut out of thin cork paper. I think it adds even more texture to the card. 



 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

  4. Such an awesome card! Totally loving it. The move to Hawaii sounds divine. I've always wanted to go there. I wonder if you'll be anywhere near two of my crafty Hawaiian friends, Yuki and Lalo. What an adventure that will be. Thanks so much for playing with us at Lawnscaping!
