Lawn Fawn Give Thanks!

I'm still having lots of fun with my Lawn Fawn stamps!! Here's a cute little Thanksgiving one using the Thankful Mice set. I wanted to make a one layer card for the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog using these cute little guys!

One layer cards are not one of my strengths! I'm too impatient to think forward the steps to mask and plan ahead.... however, I have been playing around with masking more lately and I really had fun with this card!

I started out by stamping these cute mice with Memento black ink on a piece of white cardstock. I added the cheese and the plate (from the Love You A Latte set) and then masked them all and added a mask to the bottom of my card by hand cutting a rounded piece of cardstock.

I used a Tim Holtz stencil over the top part of my card and pressed Versamark embossing ink through the stencil. I heat set Crystal embossing powder to give a bit of a shimmer to the embossed area and then used Distress Inks to sponge ink on my card. The embossing powder acted as a resist, leaving the 'sweater' pattern white.

I coloured in my images using Prismacolor Markers and used a brown Distress Marker to create stitching lines. I stamped the sweet sentiment (love the font!) in brown ink and added the heart stamp, which also came in the set, to each side. A little Glossy Accents on this yummy cheese adds another bit of dimension while keeping it one layer!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoy a very happy, very crafty week!!
