Happy Friday everyone!!! I want to hijack the beginning of my own blog post to let you know that we’re running a SALE through the Labor Day weekend over at the Twiddler’s Nook shop! So be sure to head there and treat yourself!
Now, let’s get on with today’s super special card share! Yesterday was my mom’s birthday and since I gave her her card already, I get to share it with all of you today!
To create my card I pulled out a couple of great sets from Lawn Fawn – Oh, Gnome and Gleeful Gardens, stamped some images and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies and cut them all out. Next, I took an A2 panel and inked it up with mowed lawn and twisted citron distress oxide inks. I spritzed it with water and used the stitched hillside borders to cut some ground.
Next, I took my card base and lightly inked the edges with broken china distress oxide and the center with squeezed lemonade to look like the sun peeking over the horizon. Then I began to place my images and adhere them down with liquid glue. The gnomes and their accessories are popped up with foam squares for a little dimension.
My sentiment is from wavy sayings and it’s stamped on a wavy banner with a yellow border layered over the top of the stitched banner. This is adhered with liquid glue as well since it falls a little behind the standing gnome. The second part of my sentiment is stamped directly on the grass with Versafine onyx black ink.
Finally, I moved on to finishing touches. For those I added some white gel pen accents to the images and then glossy accents to the mushroom dots, gnome buckles, flower centers and the ribbon on the gift.
My mom really likes garden gnomes and has plenty around the yard so I thought this card was just perfect for her. I think she really liked it which, of course, made me happy.
Don’t forget to stop by the SHOP and pick up some goodies over the weekend. The sale runs today through Monday.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
