School Inspired Greeting Card, Craft My Stash #4

Hello! I am featuring several products from my stash:

  1. Lawn Fawn Party Panda Stamp & Lawn Cuts
  2. Lawn Fawn Check This Out stamp set
  3. Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders
  4. Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Scallops 6x6 Inch Petite Paper Pad
  5. Lawn Fawn Stackable Stitched Square
  6. Lawn Fawn #awesome stamp & die sets
  7. Lawn Fawn Flippin' Awesome die set.

I am also featuring the LF Hello die which is new to my stash. 

I created a background for my panel by stamping the library return card using a blue pigment ink and heat embossing this with clear powder. I masked off some of the edges to overlap the library return card. This was not to hard too do since the edges are straight. All I had to is cover the edge with a Post-It Note. Using the same masking paper, I inked each library card using various Tim Holtz Distress Inks. 

For the main focus of the card, I stamped the panda on Neenah Solar White cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink. After this has dried, I die cut the panda using the matching die.

I stamped the book from the LF Check This Out stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock using Hero Arts Navy Shadow ink. I fussy cut the book leaving a little white border around it. I cut off the book pages to lessen its height. After I've adjusted this to the desired height, I taped this on the inside of the book. 

To build the scene, I die cut a square using the patterned paper and the stitched die. From the same paper pad, I die cut the grassy hills. I used both positive and negative cuts to create layers. I die cut a black cardstock to create a frame using the die from the LF #awesome die set. I could have skipped using the stitched square die since the stitching detail got covered by the frame but I did not have plans of adding a frame to the lay out while I was creating this card. 

For the sentiment, I die cut a red pearl cardstock and a red patterned paper from the patterned paper pad using the LF Hello die. I used the patterned hello die cut as a shadow for the solid hello die cut.

I stamped the sentiment awesome on a black cardstock using Versamark ink. I heat embossed this with white embossing powder. I made this into a label using a label die from LF Flippin' Awesome die set. 

The panel was too busy for the framed focal point. I placed a vellum overlay over the panel to mute it down. To adhere the vellum, I squirted a small amount of glue to the back of the vellum where the focal point will be adhered. This will be covered so I am not too worried of the liquid glue. I set this aside to dry. After which, I stitched over the lines of the library return card with a transparent thread to secure the vellum and also, for some added interest. 

I adhered the focal point with foam adhesive. I adhered the hello die cut sentiment and tucked in the label sentiment underneath it.

I added Ranger White Enamel dots to the eyes of the panda. I adhered a red clay heart to the book. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
