Lawn Fawn + May Arts Week

June 7, 2012

Hey there everyone!!  Welcome to the last day of the Lawn Fawn partnership with May Arts!!

May Arts generously sent us a lovely assortment of ribbon & trims to use in combination with our Lawn Fawn stamps this week.  They sent some of my VERY favorite black/cream checked ribbon, which you will see that I used on my card, along with some wired burlap ribbon, and fabric flowers that I cut from the sheer ribbon they typically reside on.

I also combined the Lawn Fawn stamps & May Arts ribbon with the Glitz Design "French Kiss" collection...and layered this shabby little creation until my heart was content.  I love cards that just have so much to look at...they make me happy!!  Here is what I created:
"i heart you" supplies:
Cardstock: WPlus9 (kraft)
Paper/Stickers/Jewels: Glitz Design (French Kiss collection)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Just My Type Too & Sally's ABCs sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Stephanie Bernard Dye: strawberry) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Ribbon/Burlap Trim/Fabric Flowers: May Arts

1. Make 5" square card from kraft cardstock.
2. Cut floral paper slightly smaller; distress ink & sand the edges. 
3. Distress the square burlap diecut edges; then adhere to the floral paper.
4. Tie ribbon around the top of the block; then adhere to the card front.
5. Cut two pieces of burlap ribbon & two fabric flowers; then layer to the card front.
6. Add the dimensional sticker to the front, then accent with jewels & an epoxy sticker.
7. Stamp the "i heart you" sentiment to a kraft cardstock strip, notch the right edge and adhere. 
8. Accent the bow with a large jewels, and the lower left corner with three clear jewels to finish.
