Card – baker’s twine grass

Hi everyone. Vera here today to share a fun card I made for May Arts week with Lawn Fawn. This time I play with the fun & cute Lawn Fawn Gnome Sweet Gnome set and Say Cheese set. And for my background I used one of the papers from Lawn Fawn Bright Side Petite paper pack.

Here’s a look at my card.

Do you notice where I used the yummy May Arts twine (item # 412-18)? Yep, I used the twine to create the grass. And, here the gnome is proudly showing his well maintained grass. 🙂

To create this card, I first stamp the Polaroid frame, fussy cut it, and cut out the inside, so you end up with an opening. Stamp sentiment on the front of the frame. Then on the back part I put some adhesive and adhere twine one by one, cutting them the same length as I go. Here’s how the back of the frame look like.

After I lined up the twine, I cut a colored cardstock the same size as the Polaroid frame for the background. Adhere the frame with pop-dots to the background, arrange the gnome & the house, then add the bird.

As you might notice, lately I am loving banners on my card. So, needless to say I did the same for this card. I used May Arts Satin reversible Stitched Edge ribbon (BM66) for the banners and adhere them directly behind the frame. Then adhere the frame piece to the card slightly off center and added a rhinestone next to the sentiment to finish the card.

And, my gnome has a nice, neat grass for his yard. 🙂 Hope you like today’s project and thank you so much for visiting us here at May Arts. Have a blessed day!
