Make a Wish

Here's my card for the current Lawnscaping stars and stripes themed challenge. I got both stars and stripes in on this sweet design using Lawn Fawn's new Hello Baby set.

Make a Wish birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
The set's smaller bunny image looks like he (or she?) is looking right up at the sky, so I thought the image would be perfect paired with a starry nighttime sky.  I stamped the bunny on white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers, then used the matching die to cut it out.  The tail's filled in with a bit of white flock--I can't resist adding that little detail to the bunny tail!  I made the sky with a star stencil and silver embossing paste along with a watercolor wash.  After everything dried, I added a panel of green striped patterned paper at the bottom as grass, then set the bunny on the scene using dimensional dots.

I matted the image on green cardstock, then adhered the image panel on an angle to a blue cardfront.  The "make a wish" sentiment from the Starry Backdrops set was stamped in black ink on a darker green banner strip and adhered to the cardfront so that it overlapped the bottom of the image panel.

Don't forget about the big moving sale at i {heart} papers--there's still lots of Lawn Fawn in stock.  Use the code moving 2014 to get 30% off of your order.  Happy shopping!
