Das doppelte Lottchen #140

It's sunday, that means it's Lottie and Lisa time!

That means Anni and I usually pick a stamp or stamp set or die that we both have (we nearly have the same taste!) and create a card with this product and another task.
Today Anni made a wish, and it is:

Lawn Fawn - Make Lemonade
old newpaper or bookpage

Ages ago  (well, it was Lottie and Lisa #20) Anni and I made a Lottie and Lisa when I saw her using a chinese newsletter on her card and I thought "I want that, too!!". Years later I got mail from China and they used newspaper for their packaging, so I kept that and knew I'd make a card out of this. Anni's challenge was perfect for this! - Of course I have NO idea about anything written there - hope it's nothing on the negative side - but I thought it would add some exotic feeling to this summery lemonade card. 
(Fun fact: I admire Anni's cards that much, my whole memory is full of her cards - cards she doesn't remember herself - lol!)

  • tear a piece of newspaper to the right size and attach it to your cardbase. 
  • Cut an oval panel (I used my Silhouette) and adhere it onto the paper with some foam pads.
  • stamp, color and fuzzy cut the images, adhere them with more foam tape
  • add some bright washi tape and matching enamel stickers for more interest and brightness
  • use alphabet stickers to create your own sentiment.
  • add glossy accents to all your glass-parts

  • Alphabet stickers are perfect to create your own sentiments
  • adhering your rectangle-alpha-stickers in a wanky way has multiple advantages: you don't have to line anything up correctly AND it adds more dynamic to a fun card.
  • repeating colors with different embellishments pulls the card together (so you can NEVER have enough embellishments in different colors - right?)
  • Glossy accents always add a little extra - and that glass-effect is perfect on stamp sets like this.

Hop over to Anni's blog to find her creation
