Hi again! Today I’m popping in with a pair of thank you cards featuring an older Lawn Fawn set called Happy Trails. It’s a 3×4 set that I’ve had for ages and I always have so much fun creating with it. Today I’m making two thank you cards because we just bought our first travel trailer and I wanted to do something for a couple of guys at the dealership that were super amazing with us!
I’m not usually one for making the same card twice so I created completely different cards using the exact same images. And I seriously love them both! I started by stamping the car, trailer and a bunch of trees and colored them all with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and split them into two piles to start making cards!
This is the first one I made. It’s a large stitched rectangle blended with distress oxide ink in mowed lawn, twisted citron, peacock feathers and salty ocean and spritzed with water. Then I cut the road border pieces from black and yellow cardstock, adhered them together and to the panel. I added the inside of the simple puffy cloud frames and trees with liquid glue. Then popped up the car, trailer and wavy banner with foam squares.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the wheel hubs and headlight on the car. Then I came in with a black glaze pen for the door knob and white gel pen accents on the windows.
After creating this bright daytime scene, I remembered that I hadn’t even cut apart my Forest Backdrop dies yet so that was a must for this next one!
The frame is cut from Knock on Wood patterned paper and everything else from cardstock in my stash. After cutting all of the pieces, I used liquid glue to adhere all the layers together and to the frame where they go. I also cut two different simple stitched hills – one from brown and the other from green for some layered ground elements. I adhered the hills to a blue panel and popped the Forest Backdrop up with foam strips.
Finally, I added the trees to the background with liquid glue, popped up the trailer and car with foam squares and also decided to add the moon and stars from the Forest Backdrop dies to the upper left corner. I finished the scene off with the same wavy banner on the upper right which balanced the design perfectly.
I added the same finishing touches to this card except for adding Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the moon and stars in the sky.
Isn’t it so fun to create such different cards when you’re starting out with the same images and idea?!? I just love them and hope the guys do too!
