Winter Bunny {Lawnscaping Winter Blog Hop}


Good morning to you. I am happy to be joining in on the Lawnscaping Winter blog hop.

The hop started over on the Lawnscaping blog and you should have made it here from Sharna's blog. If you did not, then start the hop at the beginning point because you do not want to miss any of the projects featuring the fabulous Lawn Fawn stamps! There are lots of prizes to be had also by leaving comments as you blog hop!

Today's card is on the masculine side. My husband has several bachelor golfing buddies so I always try to make a batch of cards more appropriate for them. I love bling and girly colors so a lot of my cards lean more feminine. It's a real struggle to tone it down.

I started out by cutting the tag and using a Heidi Swapp stencil, Golden Fiber Paste and Doodlebug glitter to create a falling snow look. I then colored up the Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny image with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. The sentiment which came from The Cat's Pajamas Merry Everything set was stamped onto a separate flag shape. The paper all came from the Bazzill Basics Nordics Pine pad. I couldn't help myself - just had to slip in a bit of bling using American Crafts metallic paper.


Products: Lawn Fawn stamp, Bazzill Basics dp and cs, The Cat's Pajamas sentiment stamp, American Crafts silver dp, PTI and Bazzill Card Shoppe cs, Heidi Swapp stencil, Golden Fiber Paste, Doodlebug Sugar Coating, WPlus9 tag die, Copic Markers
Copics: Bunny-W00, E81; Scarf-R22, R24 E19; Sled-E31, E34, E37

Now it’s time to hop on over to Kari's blog. Don't forget to comment along the way for a chance to win some fun prizes. You can find out about prize specifics on the Lawnscaping Challenge blog.

I am also entering this card in the current CAS-ual Fridays (CF123) challenge which has a theme of  Let it Snow as well as the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge which is also a theme of Let it Snow.
