Lawn Fawn Cards for Kids Blog Hop




Hello and welcome to the Lawn Fawn Hearts Cards for Kids Blog Hop! We have all come together today to make cards for a wonderful cause, Cards for Kids! We hope to encourage you to also make cards for this great cause and have fun along the way, too! So please hop along with us, and make sure to leave comments as there will be prizes for commenters and participants! So let's get going! Also, if you are lost in the hop, you can always start at the beginning at the Lawn Fawn blog. Thank you so much for hopping along with us today!

Here are my cards:





{Supplies: Patterned papers - KI Memories, Cardstock - Recollections (colors) and Wausau Paper (white), Ink - Stampabilities, Embossing Powder - American Crafts, Stamps - Inkadinkado (unicorn) and Studio G (Hello), Dies - Spellbinders, Gems - Studio 18, Marker - Copic Honey Y18}

I started out by choosing my most fun, brightest patterns for these cards - KI Memories Paisley Parade. You can find it at Reverie Creations. I then used my Spellbinders and Cuttlebug to cut the large pieces out. I positioned the smaller nesting die within the larger pieces. Because this is double-sided paper and the dies are symmetrical, I was able to just flip over the piece I cut out to create the contrast in the middle. It saved me a little bit of time, and a little bit of paper. Plus, I always love it when I can use both sides of my double-sided papers!
