Lawn Fawn Holiday Inspiration Week: "Making Frosty Friend"

Hey there, everyone!  Sorry I haven't been around much in the past week.  I have been busy with a couple of engagement shoots, and getting ready for my mom to come home.  My little brother came over on Friday night, and my mom's flight arrived Saturday morning.  We spent the rest of the weekend together, and Casey went back to Sheridan this morning for work.  BUT, he will be back in Missoula permanently soon...which makes me SO happy.  My house is going to be full of people, but also full of love...and I am so excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

In place of a new release in November, we are doing an inspiration week using all of Lawn Fawn's holiday stamp sets.  There are so many great stamp sets for this time of year, and because they have already been released...we don't want them to be forgotten!!

For A Very Fawny Holiday Day 1, I am showcasing "Making Frosty Friends", which has to be one of my favorite of the latest releases!  I decided to focus on the sweet friendship sentiment in the set, and use it with some of my favorite product as of late!  While this isn't exactly "Holiday" themed...it does match my Christmas decor!! Tee hee!  I have created this card for some challenges as well, which are linked at the bottom of the post.  Here is what I created!
"Friends Warm the Heart" supplies: 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft, vintage cream)
Paper/Stickers/Lace/Jewel: Glitz Design (Beautiful Dreamer: Stripe, Polka)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Making Frosty Friends set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Mixed Media: leather)
Seam Binding: The Cat's Pajamas
Brad: GCD Studios
Flowers/Leaves: Prima Marketing
Chipboard: Maya Road
Pearl: Darice Inc.
Glitter: DecoArt
Paint: Making Memories

Instructions:  Make card from kraft cardstock.  Cut striped paper slightly smaller and adhere.  Adhere a cardstock sticker to the bottom of the card.  Tie seam binding around the left side of the card.  Adhere a matching cardstock sticker to the top of the card.  Add a matching bow to the top of the card, and accent the middle with a brad medallion and large pink jewel.  Adhere the pink flower to white paper leaves, then adhere both the aqua & pink flowers to the card front.  Paint the wings with white paint, and cover the heart with patterned paper.  Glitter the wings, then layer both pieces together.  Adhere the heart accent to the bottom of the flowers, then accent with a pearl heart.  Stamp the sentiment to a vintage cream cardstock strip, then cut banners to each edge.  Add a strip of pink lace to the right side of it, then adhere the entire strip to the front using dimensional adhesive.

Please check out the other Lawn Fawn designers who have created some projects using "Making Frosty Friends" & "Bows and Holly"!

I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your day! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
