Zesty Slimline Birthday Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Hi friends. I couldn’t resist but CASE this card from Lawn Fawn Design Team member, Tammy Stark, featuring the cute Zesty Lemon Die. I used similar colors on the background but a different technique, changed the sentiment and a different border.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create the card base. I diecut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the stitched slimline frame from the Essentials Slimline Die. I also cut a piece measuring 3-1/8 x 6-1/8″.

I used Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, and Wild Honey Distress Inks fro the background, using the ink smoosh technique and also added some splatters. I also added white splatters with White Acrylic Paint.

I die cut the lemons and limes from Stampin’ Up! So Saffron 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock and Simon Says Stamp 100# Green Apple Cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Zesty Lemon Die. The leaves I die cut from Simon Says Stamp 100# Green Leaf Cardstock, the flowers, piths, and whole lemon backs from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock and the flower centers and cheeks from Lawn Fawn Guava 100# 8 1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock.

I colored the images with Tim Holtz Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Inks.

I die cut the sentiment word ‘ZEST’ 2x from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock using Lawn Fawn Henry’s ABCs and colored one set with Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I stamped the rest of the sentiment directly onto the card from the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Clear Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I finished the card by adding white highlights with White Gel Pen.

I left the inside of the card blank.
