"Dad's Day": Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week

May 27, 2012

Hey there, everyone!  Welcome back to the May Lawn Fawn inspiration week!  Today we are featuring a new stamp set called "Dad's Day".  This 3x4 set has fabulous graphics and two really fun sentiments.  I think you are going to just love it!

I went very clean and simple with my card for tonight's post- which felt perfect for the graphic nature of this stamp set.  I paired kraft cardstock with the silver chevron paper from Lawn Fawn's "Bright Side" 6x6 paper pad....and I am loving the color combo!!  I hope you do too!  Here is what I created:
"Happy Dad's Day" supplies:
Cardstock: WPlus9
Paper/Stamps/Twine: Lawn Fawn (Dad's Day set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Chalk: dark brown)
Brad/button: craft supply
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories

1. Make A2 card from kraft cardstock; round lower right corner.
2. Cut a strip of chevron paper & round the same corner; adhere.
3. Wrap twine around the seam. 
4. Tie a double bow from matching twine, adhere to the bottom and top with a twine threaded button.
5. Stamp the tie and sentiment to to kraft side of the card. 
6. Add a brad to the tie to finish.
