Lawnscaping Challenge: DIMENSION sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Welcome and happy Monday to you all. I’m back for another fun Lawnscaping Challenge! This week’s theme is all about dimension! I love adding dimension, whether it be subtle or IN YOUR FACE! Now this week has been nutso. My husband wasn’t here, Lily wasn’t sleeping and I was a walking zombie. So I made this Father’s Day card at 5AM this morning, I kid you not. NOTHING like waiting until the last minute!


So let me explain. The chair used Puffs Embossing Powder! When you heat emboss it, it puffs up all the page. I also added a bit more on top of what I already heated to try and give it some texture as well! The top panel is popped up on dimensions as is the adorable mustache. And yes, I had to use my Wink of Stella pen to add a bit of glitter to it…


 I went along the inside edge with a black gel pen in a free hand form.. and that blue background of course is made with distress inks! Got pull my babies out, lol!

We are sponsored by the fabulous Lawn Fawn. The winner will receive a stamp set of your choosing so be sure to play along! 🙂
