Fawny Holiday Week: Clean & Simple Christmas Card + video

Hello! It's Fawny Holiday week at Lawn Fawn.  A week full of holiday projects and inspiration. It is also our Get Cracking on Christmas day!  (if you are not familiar yet with my Get Cracking on Christmas posts, it is a monthly holiday post with my friends to create one holiday card each month throughout the year. This month Jenn & Caryn are joining me with a Get Cracking on Christmas post. I have a clean and simple glittery card to share, with a video tutorial as well.


I cut the letters with Louie's ABCs and the mini wreath from Christmas colored glitter cardstock and added them to a white woodgrain cardstock base.  The little bow and string are from the stitched ornaments die set and I simply trimmed it off at the top so that it looks as though the wreath is hanging from the top of the card.


For the remainder of the sentiment, I white embossed Harold's ABCs onto a folded banner and adhered it below. To finish off I added some red jewels to look like berries.  You can see just how I created this card in the video below or HERE on my YouTube channel.

Be sure and check out the Lawn Fawn blog all week for holiday inspiration and also visit Jenn & Caryn for some Get Cracking on Christmas inspiration as well.  Also if you want to join us in our monthly holiday card making please share on social media and use the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas.

Glittery Thanksgiving Card with Alcohol Ink

Today I have a glittery Thanksgiving card to share.  I used alcohol ink to custom color pixie dust glitter cardstock to create some colorful fall leaves to decorate my card.  I dyed a whole piece then die cut stitched leaves to get variegated fall colored leaves.


I used a mixture of Finley's ABCs with a dipped embossing technique and scripty thanks cut from glitter cardstock to create the sentiment.  I arranged all my elements on a white quilted backdrop for some added interest and design. 


I have a video tutorial showing just how I created this card and how I colored my glitter cardstock with alcohol inks.  Check out the video below or HERE on my YouTube channel.

Halloween Shaker Card

Today I have a fun Halloween Shaker Card to share with some dressed up ghosts ready for some trick or treating.  I used one of my favorite Halloween sets from Lawn Fawn, Booyah!  I just love that you can dress up the ghosts and the costume pieces work well with other images too.


I stacked a bunch of star frames to create the shaker part of the card and added it to a card with purple plaid for the background.  I filled the star with Spooky Fun sequin mix from 28 Lilac Lane.  I used black glitter for the outside star frame to add some fun spooky sparkle.


I overlapped the star with my dressed up ghosts and stamped the sentiment along the bottom. I finished it off with some tiny black glitter stars.  You can check out just how I made this card in the video below or HERE on my YouTube channel.

Lawn Fawn October Inspiration Week: Stitched Christmas Tree Frames + Outside-In Stitched Christmas Tree Stackables

Hello! I am back today to share a few cards for Lawn Fawn October Inspiraiton week featuring the Stitched Christmas Tree frames and Outside-In Stitched Christmas Tree Stackables.


My first card is a shaped card and a shaker card. I used the stackables and frames with Really Rainbow Christmas papers to create a tree shaped card. I used the Merry Christmas Line border die for the sentiment on top of the acetate.


My second card is pretty simple.  I wanted to use this rustic plaid fabric to create a Christmas card.  I covered a panel with the fabric then glued it to a card base.  I cut a cross stitched rectangle panel that was slightly smaller than the card from kraft cardstock and then cut a tree window out of my panel.  I added a little distress ink to the edges to have it match the look of the rustic plaid fabric as well.


I wrapped the card base with peppermint twine and tied it in a bow so that the twine looks like a garland on the tree when viewed through the window.  I adhered the panel with foam adhesive to raise it up off the fabric panel and added a sentiment using Happy Happy Happy Add-on mixed with Winter Scripty sentiments and Simply Winter sentiments.


Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more inspiration with these fun tree dies. Thanks for stopping by.

Lawn Fawn October Inspiration Week: Tiny Gift Box Deer Add-On + Reverse Stitched Scalloped Windows

Hello! Lawn Fawn October Inspiration week continues today and we are featuring the Tiny Gift Box Deer Add-on and the Reverse Stitched Scalloped Window dies. I have three cards to share with you today so I will get right to it!


I used the Tiny Gift Box Deer Add-On to create a card instead of a box.  I cut the deer out of paper bag cardstock and inked the edges to darken it up and give some dimension to the deer.  The background is blended with distress oxide ink and then cut with the snowfall backdrop die.  I layered the background onto a white card base then added the Leafy Tree Backdrop in Narwhal cardstock over top.  


I cut the snow drifts from Pixie Dust cardstock and finally added a Stitched frame.  I added chunky glitter to the tree and a simple Christmas sentiment to finish it off.


My second card uses the reverse stitched scalloped square windows.  I layered two windows inside each other and added some Holiday Helpers popping out from the openings.


I added a big sentiment from Winter Big Scripty Words white embossed on red cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies. 


My last card for today is a fun birthday card.  I used the largest reverse stitched scalloped rectangle window to create the frame around this birthday scene.  The little kids are from the Screen Time stamp set.  To change it up a little I used images from Party Animals and Holiday Helpers to fill the scene with toys and party props. I added a Really Rainbow banner across the top to round out this happy party scene.


You can see how I created these cards as part of today's Intro videos on the Lawn Fawn Blog. Be sure and check out all the other inspiration for today's featured products on the blog as well.
