Lawn Fawn Make LemonadeI am literally jumping up and down. My card I made for Lawnfawnatics challenge #24 was featured by Lawn Fawn! What an honor! I’m on cloud 9!

I thought I would share how I made this card today!

For this card, I used the following Lawn Fawn Products (this post contains affiliate links):

I actually colored the images from Make Lemonade at Kathy Racoosin‘s Coloring Challenge Roadtrip hosted at Lawn Fawn headquarters a few weeks ago! When I got home, I wanted to make a card with it as my own little keepsake of what I did there. I bought the quilted background die from the new release because it’s amazing and knew I wanted to use it so I decided to design around the images and the die. Turned out it was a great idea! Lol.

I started by diecutting a piece of white cardstock with the quilted background die. Okay, I need to confess this. I made a major mess with all those little pieces in-between the quilt when I poked them out. I didn’t anticipate that while I was doing it but it was worth and and nothing a quick vacuum couldn’t fix!

I decided to use a piece of the yellow paper from the Lawn Fawn rainbow pack to back my quilted piece. I love the color that peeks through the little holes when I first saw all the great cards the Lawn Fawn design team made with this die. It looks just as great in person, guys! I kicked it up a notch by using my inside out stitched heart die and lighted it up to the top 3rd of my quilted background panel. I wanted more of the yellow to show.

I then just glue the quilted piece on top of the yellow piece and it already looked amazing! I popped on the Make Lemonade images onto the open heart.  I mounted the lemon and glass with foam tape for a little dimension against the pitcher. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto some scrap of the same yellow background paper with white embossing powder and adhered it to the card. And it’s done. So simple and so much impact due to the beauty and intricacy of this quilted die!

I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by!
