Beary happy birthday card–Lawn Fawn

9.2014bearybday

 

I love my Love you S’more Lawn Fawn Set and wanted to use it again, so while I was brushing my teeth I came up with the idea of putting the bears, some trees, and sequins in a shaker card and use a play on words for “Beary”.

20140914_160728This card is pretty simple and didn’t really require much. I used my washi tape from We R Memory Keepers and Paper Studio Bakers Twine.

I used a computer font, and some white gel pen accents.

I was thinking I could also use the “Beary” theme and create a similar card for “Beary” excited for you or You are “beary” cool, or some other similar greeting.

It was a pretty quick card, but I love that set and wanted to find “S’more” uses for it!  Haha!  I Know. .. I Know…I just couldn’t resist.

Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!

Cute kiddo Shaker Card

7.2014shaker cardSSSwednesdayI decided to go shaker style on this card!  My brother and his wife are expecting their first child (a girl!), in November and I am super excited to be an aunt. So with them in mind, I created this sweet little so happy for you card. You could easily adapt this to a kid birthday card with a different sentiment.

20140702_170120I used the smaller banner die from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners Die set some assorted sequins from Hobby Lobby, baker’s twine from Paper Studio, and the heart and small star stamp from the Lawn Fawn Love you s’more stamp setI had a $1 stamp from Michaels,  American Crafts Opaque White Embossing Powder,  Recollections purple tinsel and raspberry pearl embossing powders as well.  I used an old star punch and the We R Memory Keepers 1/2″ Corner Chomper. The patterned paper came from a clearanced out DCWV mat stack from Target. the notecard was a premade one from Michael’s (Love to stock up with their coupons!). Glitter paper is also from Michael’s.

For the shaker element, I used old acetate from a stamp set that I saved just for this purpose. I cut out two banner shapes with the Lawn fawn set and one from the acetate. I used Tombow Mono Multi glue to adhere the acetate to the top banner. In order to get the window on the top banner, I just used my Xacto and ruler and cut out a frame. I then used thin foam adhesive to line the edges of the banner shape. It is important to get along the whole edge, so your shaker filling stays put.

QUICK TIP: Need an easy cutting surface?  I bought a large cutting board and use that for all my Xacto cutting projects.

I used photo squares to attach the shaker element to the card.  Since the shaker element stands out quite a bit, I will probably include this in a baby gift package that I will send.  That way I don’t have to worry about the postal service tearing up my card.
