WOOD you be mine?
Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Have you seen the cuteness that is the new collection from Lawn Fawn for Valentine’s Day (and general love cards)?! Special guest Chari Moss is sharing this gorgeous new design featuring some new products with a card idea that is perfect for guys and gals! Read on for all the details and enjoy!
Hello Crafty Friends! Today I have a cute woodsy Valentine to share with you. I pulled out some of the newest products from Lawn Fawn to play with for today’s card and wound up with a cute card mixing dies, stamps, and hot foil! Hot foil is newer to me, I just started using it recently with the introduction of hot foil plates from Lawn Fawn but I love that it gives me another option for my card designs.
For this card I started with a beautiful foiled woodgrain background. I used the Woodgrain Background Hot Foil Plate along with some Rose Gold Glimmer Foil on Kraft cardstock. Then I inked the edges with a little bit of tea dye distress ink to darken it up. The Hot Foil will resist the ink and can be wiped clean with a dry cloth. The background is cut out with the largest Outside In Stitched Rectangle and mounted to a Vanilla Malt cardstock base.
Next I moved on to my sentiment, the Giant Outlined Love Ya Die is perfect to layer over the background and fill the card. To keep with the warm woodsy feel of the card, I cut the sentiment rom Chocolate Bar cardstock for the outline. Then I filled the letters with Ballet Slipper cardstock. I love how the foiled woodgrain lines peek through the openings in this die cut. I also cut some scraps of Guava cardstock to make pink hearts to pop into the sentiment cut out as well as sprinkle around it.
Finally I stamped, colored, and die cut some cute beavers from the Wood You Be Mine? stamp set. I stamped them in Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I tried to keep them lighter in tone so they would match my background nicely. They are almost camouflaged which really makes the sentiment stand out. I added them to the bottom corners using foam adhesive so they stand out from the background just a bit. Finally I added some Stardust Stickles to all the hearts.
I love how it all turned out and I think it would actually be a great card to give to a guy, it has a some masculine vibe with all the warm woodsy colors. Thanks for joining me today!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Chari for being our guest!
Such a great card, Chari! TFS – I keep meaning to add that wood grain foil plate to a cart either at SSS or LF. I will have to check if I have already ordered it or not. I am so behind on opening mail….
Thanks again for the terrific inspiration.
