Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 3

Hello there! 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting a baby real soon. I also submitted this card for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #3 called Outstanding Occasions. The challenge is to make a card about a special occasion such as anniversaries, weddings, new babies or graduations. 

Here's a look at the card I made:
(Baby Card Front)

To create this card, I first cut a piece of Neenah white 110 lb. cardstock with Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Rectangle" dies. Then I embossed that piece with the "Pinwheels" embossing folder by Sizzix. 

I then die cut a piece of green cardstock with Lawn Fawn's "Grassy Border" die and then with the "Stitched Rectangle" dies to give it a continuous stitched look. I then heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger's white embossing powder. I adhered the grass to the white panel.

I then stamped a baby mobile from Lawn Fawn's "Plus One" stamp set and colored it with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I put some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen over the moon and stars and then cover them in Glossy Accents. I set them aside to dry. 

I adhered the white panel to some yellow patterned paper using some fun foam to add some dimension. After it was dry, I glued the baby mobile with some foam tape to add a little more dimension. To finish the card front, I adhered everything to a top folding 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. 

On the inside of the card I cut a circle out of some purple glitter paper and adhered it to the center. Then I stamped and colored a stork from the "Plus One" stamp set and adhered it. I also die cut a congratulations sentiment from Spellbinders' "Sentiments One" dies and adhered it to the circle.

Here are some of the supplies I used for this card:


  1. This is lovely. The embossing and the stitched dies give it such a cozy quilted feel.

  2. This is such an adorable baby card, Lisa! I love the pretty embossed pattern in the background! Thanks for sharing with us at Lawn Fawnatics!

    1. Thank you for creating these challenges for Lawn Fawnatics! It gets the creative juices flowing and it makes me want to create cards. :)

  3. Love the embossing on the white flat card here - I have embossing folders, but always forget to use them. This is a great idea!

    1. It happens to all of us! I usually forget I have embossing folders also. Thanks for your comment!
