Second post today... Be sure to check out the first one as well =)
I wanted to show this card I made using one of my new Lawn Fawn sets. I had an idea pop into my head, and just HAD to make a card with it asap! I usually sketch up any ideas for cards that fall into my head, and store them in a binder for later use, but I was so excited about this idea that I wanted to make a card with it right away =)
I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Stamp Something - Something Sentimental (use a sentiment)
Lily Pad - Inspiration Challenge #2 (I got inspired to use fun, bright colors from Vicky's card here)
Here's the card I made:
My big idea was to use tissue paper instead of the drawn tissue that this stamp really has. The stamp is from Lawn Fawn's "On the mend". I embossed&paper-pieced the tissue-box, cut off the tissue the stamp had stamped, and cut a slit for my own tissue. I then cruched up some tissue, and tucked it into the box through the slit. I first tried using white tissue paper (the kind you would use to wrap gifts with), but I didn't like how it turned out. So I switched over to tissues (the kind you would wipe your nose with), and I got far better results. The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the tissue-box. I just added three dots to each side of the sentiment myself. I really love how the card turned out, but in hindsight I see that I should probably have made the tissue not so long/high, to be able to place the image and sentiment more towards the center of the white panel. But other then that, I'm quite happy with this card =) I used more bright colors on this card then I normally do, but I really like it. Must try to go for brighter colors like this more often!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
