Here’s my first card:
Who could resist?
The first thing I did was stamp everything (mostly on scrap pieces). The birds, dog, butterfly, swing and flowers were stamped in black VersaFine on white cardstock, colored and cut out using the matching dies. (Usually, I’m an avid “fussy-cutter,” I love to sit in front of the TV and cut out images! But the dies made this project so much easier!)
The tree was stamped twice — once on the brown paper, once on the green (from Let’s Polka. Mon Amie pad.) The tree and the top were hand cut (as opposed to die cut) so I could trim them as I wanted. The swing set and slide were stamped and embossed in black powder on silver cardstock. The flags were die cut using Stitched Journaling die, the grassy hill die cut using Stitched Hillside Borders.
Then came the fun part — putting it all together on blue cardstock.
First, I glued down the grassy hill shapes. Then I played with the pieces to see where everything fit. Once I was happy with the layout, I glued everything down. I popped up the tree top with foam tape, stamped the tail of the butterfly directly on the card front, and drew in the lines for the banner.
I don’t often create scenes, but this was fun. Stay tuned for another card using Lawn Fawn’s Stuck on You cactus set (which is featured in this month’s Craftideas magazine.)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
