The theme for the challenge this week is —- MY FAVORITE THINGS. Which means that to make the card, we needed to use some of our favorite crafting tools. I picked the following – Lawn Fawn stamps (of course), Kraft card stock, alcohol markers (I used American Crafts Chromatix markers) and distress inks.
Here is my card —
I started with some Kraft card stock cut to a landscape standard size card. Then I used some Neenah Solar White card stock and masked off the bottom area to make the blue part. I used Broken China and Salty Ocean distress inks for the sky and Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint for the grass. Then for my scene, I used 2 Lawn Fawn sets. For my paper airplanes, I used Flying By and for the cupcakes, I used Bake Me A Cake. I colored the cupcakes using the American Crafts Chromatix markers and paper pieced the paper planes. I wanted it to look like the planes were flying by to drop off birthday cupcakes, so I drew black swirly lines to look like strings with a Pilot GTech pen. For the sentiment, I used the stamp from Flying By and combined it with the sentiment from Year 2. I stamped the sentiment with ColorBox Chestnut Roan ink.
I know that we were only supposed to use our favorite crafting products, but it doesn’t hurt that I love cupcakes as well. 🙂SUPPLY LIST: 1. Neenah Dessert Storm card stock 2.
