Love You S'more Birthday Card!

My nephew's birthday is today, so for his card I wanted to make use of the Lawn Fawn Love You S'more stamp set as well, and create a fun woodsy-themed card.

I first created my card background with espresso ink and the fir stamps from Lawn Fawn's Deck the Halls set. I stamped and heat-embossed the fun images from Love You S'more, and colored in the s'more (inside the card) and the marshmallow with watercolor pencils. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images, using the largest flame die with Poppy Paper Source paper, and then stamped one of the smiles from Pizza My Heart.

I adhered the various images using 3M foam tape on the outside of the card before working on the sentiment inside.

For the sentiment, I created a hybrid sentiment by using elements from two sets. I spaced these out on a stamp block and then removed the large S'MORE before stamping and embossing with espresso ink and clear embossing powder. (For the sentiment, I used HAVE from Sweet Smiles and the rest came from Love You S'more). I then stamped S'MORE with VersaMark ink and embossed using both a bright orange and a yellow embossing powder from Paper Source, which gave a fun finish. I then added the s'more to the inside with a foam square to finish off the inside.

The front of the card didn't quite look finished to me, so I decided to add the two strips of paper diagonally across the front. I had a scrap of Red Paper Source paper that had been stamped with the gingham background using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink that I paired with a solid Clover Paper Source paper to add to the card's front, which worked perfectly to finish out the card.

This card is being entered into the current Lawnscaping Challenge #126: Sweets.
