Lawnscaping Challenge #13

Hi Friends

Happy 4th of July (for my American friends!) I hope you have fun plans for this Monday off. Today, begins a new Lawnscaping challenge for you, and I think you’re going to like it.


How fun is it to receive a handmade card and then find the inside is also decorated??! I admit, I rarely do this, but I need to more often. It really finishes off the project.

We have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge, Karen Burniston, who designs pop up dies for Sizzix. She’s a talented designer who’s donating a pop up Sizzix die that she’s designed. The design team received samples cut out from the die to use for this challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Outside of card:


Inside of card:


I used the Lawn Fawn sets: Bake Me a Cake, Teeny Tiny Backdrops, Admit One, and Sophie’s Sentiments. I’ve said it before, but I love how easy it is to combine Lawn Fawn sets together.

I’ll admit that I doubt I’ll go to this much effort for every card, but I am going to try and make an effort to give the inside of my cards some love.

Be sure to go to the Lawnscaping blog to see the other designers’ cards, they are seriously WOW!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day

I'm a huge fan of this card. Your stars and stripes cake is so inventive and happy. I love it! I wish I was capable of making a cake like that in real life. Haha! Love how you used the pop-up almost like a firework, too. Great job, Nette!
