Hello! I'm extremely excited about his week's collaboration between
XYRON & LAWN FAWN
We swapped out products to show how well the two companies' work together,
especially when you're dealing with small pieces such as die-cuts!
Look how cute!
I adore the way this adorable card turned out.
I've used the Lawn Fawn "Year Five" Die and Stamp Set,
which hosts an otter and birthday sentiment.
I've also used the "Let's Polka in the Meadow" Petite Paper Pack which
is filled to the brim with the cutest stripes, dots and mini hearts in beautiful colors.
I first stamped the image onto Neenah white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Okay, so I kinda cheated a little when coloring in the otter! I used the chisel
tip of the GG1 Spectrim Noir alcohol marker to color in and shade. I like how
the long strokes of the marker give a seamless color.
I hand-cut the otter out and then used the matching die to cut a white background for it.
All pieces, and the strip of wavy water that I cut out, were ran through the Xyron 5"
I also used the 3" Permanent Adhesive to build my card bases and adhere them together.
Finally, I cut an A2 cardbase and adhered the finished piece to the front with the
The otter is holding a present, which is also a part of the stamp and die set.
The sentiment was then stamped in the same Memento Tuxedo Black ink along
the bottom "grassy" area of the card :)
