Lawnscaping Challenge #96: Merry Christmas! sponsored by Lawn Fawn

It's almost that time...nothing like a little last minute holiday crafting to get you in the spirit, right? I've got a really cute and fun card for you today. And since you're needing to make items for the holidays, why not enter in the latest Lawnscaping Challenge?? This theme is MERRY CHRISTMAS!  And try to win an amazing prize from Lawn Fawn

Special thanks to Lawn Fawn for generously sponsoring our challenge!

For my project today, I've used a couple Lawn Fawn stamp sets. I always try to think of fun ways to use my sets to really stretch my stamps and creativity!

I chose a kraft card base. I used a simple red patterned paper glued down to that trimmed just a bit shorter to let it "peek" out.

The top section, I stamped JOLLY in Memento Red and HOLLY DAYS in Memento, Tuxedo Black inks. The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls set.

Under that, I used a scalloped die I have and cut that out of kraft. For the dots, I wanted some color behind them, so I selected a green patterned paper from my stash and glued that onto there.

The strips at the bottom are four separate, equal pieces of white cardstock. I used the Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls (pinecone, red trio of dots, pine needles) and the Lawn Fawn Trim the Tree (dot, ornament, gingerbread man, star, and bow for the pinecone) sets for these. I colored them in with my Spectrum Noir markers and inked the edges with Distress Ink in Tea Dye.

I used a simple olive green and white twine bow to separate the white sentiment strip from the kraft scalloped shape. This was a lot of fun to make.

I hope you are inspired to grab your crafting supplies and enter this challenge all while making a useful holiday project! Check out the Lawnscaping Challenge blog for full details and to enter your project. Happy Crafting! Fa-la-la-la!
