Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #45 Entry - Lots of Love

Hi friends - Today I am sharing with you my entry into the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge
We all have Valentine's Day on the brain, and I enjoy creating cards with a Valentine theme. 

I will apologize now, because some of the products I used on my card are now retired from Lawn Fawn.  They are some of my favorite products though, and I wanted to use them in a creative way. 




I started my card by using some distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, and Shaded Lilac and inked on the colors onto some white card stock.  Once I was happy with how the inking turned out, I die cut the panel using the Journaling Card die and the border heart die in the same set to create a window for a mini shaker.  You know I am keeping those little hearts that were left from die cutting for another project - they are too cute and very useful!  I also die cut another bigger heart a Lawn Fawn die set and inked it up with Picked Raspberry Distress ink.  For the shaker, I added some double sided adhesive around the area, and added some acetate, then added some foam adhesive.  For the shaker bits, I added some iridescent stars for some sparkle.  Once the shaker was completed, I stamped out my sentiment using the How You Bean? Conversation Hearts Add-on stamp set since it has a nice Happy Valentine's Day sentiment in it.  I also used the Happy Happy Happy Add-on set - and die cut the Happy sentiment after stamping it onto white card stock.  I mounted that to my Picked Raspberry heart with liquid adhesive. 

To finish the card, I used papers from Gotta Have Gingham and Really Rainbow, and used my Large and Small Stitched Rectangle dies to add that finished faux stitching.  Once I added my shaker to my card, I added some finally details with a white gel pen, and a bit of shimmer with my Wink of Stella.  



It was fun to come up with something for this challenge and use older products from Lawn Fawn.  Retired or not, I still love them!
