Happy 1st Birthday!

Here is a card I created as a custom order for my Etsy Shop! I wanted to make something cute for a fall baby birthday. The Lawn Fawn critters were colored with Copics and cut out with their coordinating dies. The banner was heat embossed and freehand cut. The clouds were made with a stencil I cut from cardstock.

Since this card is going to be hand delivered, I popped up each layer with some foam adhesive for extra dimension. The grass and critters were layered and pieced onto partially die cut white cardstock for extra stability.

What's inside? To truly personalize this card, I stamped the baby's named inside on a banner with a souffle pen filled heart. I'm quite pleased with how this card turned out - I hope baby and family appreciate it too!

Since some of my favorite supplies are Lawn Fawn, baker's twine, and my Cutter Bee scissors, I'm entering this into Lawnscaping Challenge #65 - These are a Few of my Favorite Things!
