Continuing with my foray into Distress Oxide land, today I’m sharing a card that’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself. And a few of you have commented on social media that it seems weird to hear me talk about cute stuff in crafting. I totally get that, but I mean… this Lawn Fawn stuff? There is literally no other word to describe it and I am smitten with pretty much everything they do. Have you ever watched any of the videos by Lawn Fawn owner Kelly Marie Alvarez? Her voice literally conveys cuteness. As soon as she starts to talk, I reach for my credit card. (I wonder if Dan will find that as cute as I do?)
In any event, this is pretty cute.
Aside from being cute, this card hits some key points for me as a designer, namely that gorgeous framing white space around the edge of the card, and repetition of color and shape.
I recorded a short video tutorial and this is one wherein I did not make this card first and then go back and make another version of it. Nope, I decided to try and be One Take Cathy and the results turned out better than I had hoped. Enjoy!
I cannot stress enough how the cuteness of the Plane and Simple Set has sucked me into card making even further. I’ll be sharing another very simple card I made with the set next week!
Seriously. And I haven’t even tried to stamp those little faces and rosy cheeks onto the clouds yet. #ohforcute
