Kat Scrappiness Celebrates World Cardmaking Day - Lawn Fawn Goodies!

Hi everyone, I'm here with Kat Scrappiness celebrating World Cardmaking Day!  Make sure you head over to the Kat Scrapiness blog and check out the sale, card challenge and chance to win prizes!

So today I'm really excited to show you a card I made specifically to celebrate World Cardmaking Day!  This is my first christmas card of the year, can it be that time already?  Almost everything I used on this card, you can find in Kat's shop.

I started by layering my plaid papers on a black card base, I created all the stitched frames using Kat Scrappiness Double Stitched Frames

I created my brick background using an embossing folder and then lightly distress inked it in #TumbledGlass. I copic colored all my images and then cut them out using coordinating dies. For my knobs on my stove, I just used a bead of glue and some silvery glitter.  I was actually covering up the coloring which I didn't like how that turned out..but I ended up loving the glitter, so yay!

I wanted to show you a close up on how I layered my papers and most importantly, the detail of the cut using Kat's stitched rectangle dies.  Can you believe that tiny strip of grey cardstock is a piece all on it's own?  To do that, I cut a rectangle size of cardstock, just a hair bigger than the cut line on the die.  It cut so smooth and perfect!  I was actually just playing around and discovered how amazing it would look as a thin frame on my top layer!  I popped the whole top layer up using some foam tape.

Here's another shot of it from the upper corner!

Have you ever seen those Jadeite salt and pepper shakers?  I just think they are so cool.  It inspired me to make a set of my own.  Using the little jars from the set "Sprinkled with Joy" by LawnFawn, I copic colored them to look like Jadeite.  I saw the sentiments in the set "CutiePie", also by LF, and the letters looked the right size. I picked out a "P" and an "S", I inked them using #VersaFineOnyxBlack ink and then used a few small pieces of post it to cover everything but my letter I wanted to stamp.  Omgosh, I just thought these turned out so cute!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're enjoying all the projects created by the talented Design Team over at KatScrappiness!
