Lawnscaping #24 Challenge: Texture...YES, PLEASE!

Happy Monday friends. I've missed you all. Hope you're all doing well. Crazy time of year, I'm just trying to be with my family and enjoy it at this point.

I woke up this morning and saw on Facebook that the new Lawnscaping Challenge (#24) is Texture!!!

Texture is one of my favorite things to incorporate into my projects! And I just so happened to create a card that I think fits the bill!

So, for this card, I started by stamping and paper piecing my most fave new Lawn Fawn Stamps - Frosty Friends - and setting them aside. Next I created a heat embossed snowflake background (using a new Hero Arts Snoflake stamp I picked up in my Thanksgiving Day travels) on some Neenah Solar White paper (the embossing powder was clear) and Distress Inks. Then I decided to make another fun snowglobey card using Bo Bunny Button Packaging (again - I’m sorry, I love this effect!) and Martha Stewart’s Chunky Glitter! I added some bows to the snow-girls and then used Glossy Accents to glue the packaging down. YAY for recycling!!!

The Cuttlebug REALLY helped me out here. Turns out one of the circle dies fit the recycled packaging perfectly! Gave me clean effortless edges. I just cut the circle into the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 card front and it fit right over the packaging.

I finished the card off with a puuuuurty banner from Lawn Fawn's Bannerific and was thrilled that the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from Bows & Holly fit into it perfectly!!! And I have to say - I LOVE love LOVE those little birdies from Making Frosty Friends! They have to be my most favorite Lawn Fawn Birds - all cozy in their lil scarves!!

Here is a closer-upper view so you can see the embossing & great texture that I was able to incorporate:

Anyway, thanks for peeking in on me today! I don't know if I'll have another post before Christmas - if I don't please know how much I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Filled with God's promises, hope, and love!!! Thanks for being my friends and for supporting and encouraging me along my creative journey. I love you guys for that! Merry Christmas and God Bless!!!!
