Inspiration for the Lawn Fawn Blog: August

  Hi Everyone!

I'm here with some inspiration for the Lawn Fawn Blog. I made a card design that can be used for birthday or congratulation cards but that can easily be altered to be used for Weddings or Anniversaries by diecutting two letters instead of only one - something that can be very useful this time of year. . I absolutely adore the pretty and delicate FANCY-SCALLOPED-RECTANGLE paired with the polka dot cardstock and pretty SPRING SPRIG flowers and leaves.
 




I made a cardbase that I covered with a diecut FANCY-SCALLOPED-RECTANGLE and a stitched panel diecut from polka dot cardstock. The Heart envelope is just the sweetest and it is great to use on its own but also like I did here - as a beautiful center piece on a regular sized card. The gold and the flowers from spring sprig add an elegant touch. 


Make sure to pop over to the Lawn Fawnatics blog for lots of wonderful inspiration from my talented teamies and for all the info you need to play along!  By entering a card you have the chance of winning a 50 $ gift card to the Lawn Fawn Store! You also have the chance to have your card featured on the blog and on Lawn Fawn's popular instagram! For even more inspiration visit the LawnFawn blog.
