Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 16

Welcome back! I’m participating in challenge 16 over at the Lawn Fawnatics challenge blog. Challenge 16 is to use the oldest Lawn Fawn set you have.

For me, the oldest Lawn Fawn set I have is “Hats Off To You.” I picked this set up for the graduation cap, and it’s from 2010. I could have used one of the hats on a critter from another Lawn Fawn set, but I decided to use the Santa hat by itself instead.

I cut a circle out of the card panel with nesting circles (Simon Says Stamps’ Stitched Circles). These circles have stitches on both sides of the cut line. I used 2 sizes, so that I could cut out a circle and a “trench,” around it. I stamped the Santa hat in the center of the circle and colored it with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Frosty Friends.

I added some red glitter paper from Michael’s to the back of the panel with foam tape, and adhered it all to a MFT Wild Cherry card base. I finished off the card with Ruby Slippers Glitter drops and some Simply White Crystal Nuvo drops on the hat. I think the glitter drops are a little awkward, but overall I like how the card turned out. I wanted the focus to be on the hat, and to be simple.

In case you are wondering what I made for the Simon Say’s Stamps Wednesday Challenge, please check out my Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by!
