"Joyful Wishes" Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Hello! Hope everyone is having a lovely Monday. I have the pleasure of staying home today, so I suppose tomorrow will technically be my "Monday." But for now, I'm enjoying this wonderful day off :)!

For today's post, I made a card for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is all about pattern paper and I thought it would be so cute to do some fun paper piecing :)

For this card, I used the critters from the "Love You S'More" set and the little scarf from the "Snow Day" set. I used various Lawn Fawn 6x6 paper packs and a woodgrian pattern from an old American Crafts Christmas 6x6 paper pack. To add a little interest to my paper pieced images, I added some shading and color with Copic Markers. I also added clear Wink of Stella to the fire to make it really sparkle. 

For the focal panel, I used the 4 1/2 x 3 1/4" stitched rectangle die and the stitched hillside and forest borders to make my little winter scene. For the mat, I used my Copic Marker G17 to create my own colored cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the "Joy to the Woods" set on vellum and heat embossed with white embossing powder. To adhere the vellum, I simply wrapped the strip around the panel and adhered it from the back. 

For the cardbase, I cut the cute musical notes patter paper from the A2-sized stitched rectangle die to cover up my entire card front. I adhered my panel using foam tape and finished the card by cutting a tiny slit at the top in order to add some twine. 

And that's the card for today! I love how the different pattern papers really add so much dimension and color to an otherwise simple card. I really enjoyed this challenge and using up some of my pattern paper scraps. Thanks again for stopping by and until next time! ♥
