Sweet Paletas Happy Mail with Lawn Fawn

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

This last week's Craft Roulette had wonderful parameters (thank you, wheel!) and I did mostly die cutting for my card. I have the lemon dies from Lawn Fawn and had not opened them yet... So I used them to create fun citrus fruits along with my popsicle dies (or paletas)!

The parameters this week were: inside/outside project; any colors; critters; and four squares. I started with using a small square shaped die to cut four windows into my card base, which of course was super fun to try and get them straight and spaced equally from each other. Because the colors were so open, I knew I wanted to use a rainbow of colors for the latest Lawnfawnatics Challenge, too! I grabbed my favorite colors to distress on mix media cardstock, solid colors for my fruit and blended two colors for each paleta.

I die cut all of my colored cardstock and the rind of the fruit was out of un-colored mix media paper as it has some texture and the paleta sticks out of kraft paper. I used black ink to stamp my cutie mice and colored them in with my Illustrator markers, so I die cut the "sweet" sentiment out of black cardstock as well.

Since there was a parameter of  inside/outside, I added some fruit die cuts and a sentiment to the inside, making sure you could see some of it through the square die cut windows! I really love how this card turned out - soft rainbow is one of my favorites and this card makes me want a grapefruit paleta (hint, hint to my Florida family that makes excellent paletas for my next visit haha).

How do you think I did with the parameters? Did you play this week?
