Lawnscaping Challenge #42 Iggy Pup Text card (09/23/2012)

I am so excited - this is my first Lawnscaping Challenge set of projects.  The challenge is "Getting Texty" and I have incorporated text into a card. 

A friend of mine recently lost his very best friend, Iggy Pup, a fabulous dog.  I needed to make him a card to tell him how sorry I am for his loss, and the Getting Texty challenge was perfect!

Let's check out the card shall we?

I used Lawn Fawn's Critters in the 'Burbs for the sweet doggie, stamped him with black Memento ink and colored him with Copic markers.  I also used some of the sweet patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's Bright Side Collection Petite Paper Pack to frame the pup.  I used the ol' trusty Spellbinders Circle die cut to cut out a circle, and a SB Scalloped Circle to mat the circle.

The "texty" part was fun - I stamped out the "Iggy Pup" sentiment in Black Memento ink, using Lawn Fawn's Claire's ABCs and replicated it with Versa Mark ink along the bottom of the card.  I replicated the same idea with the "so sorry" sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABCs.

I didn't have a paw stamp, so I used my Silhouette to cut out some paw prints, and used the negative space as a template, and daubed Pumice Distress Ink through the template and created little paw prints on the card too.

I pulled out two green Distress Inks, inked up some white cardstock, and punched it with my Grass Fiskars punch to make some grass for the bottom of the card.  Tied on some Lawn Trimmings hemp cord from the Vivid Triple Pack in bows and I was done.

Hopefully Mike knows we are so saddened by the loss of his best friend.  Thinking of you....

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
