Lawn Fawn: Claw-some Beary Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn Claw-some Beary Birthday Card by Maria Byrd |

I'm excited about today's project since I get to play with Lawn Fawn You're Claw-some and my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pen.  The vivid colors are perfect for the bears! It reminded me of many hours of fun and quarters spent at the arcade trying to win a bear and other stuffed animals from claw games when I was younger.  My dad passed away a few years ago.  He would keep giving me quarters until I won one (or two, or three...) 😏  Inspired by that special memory, this will be my first "masculine" card.

To start, I stamped the images on a cold press watercolor paper using Versafine Ink in Onyx Black. I then used two colors for each bear (remember Beanie Baby Garcia craze in the 90s?).  Eyes were tipped with Sakura Black Glaze and applied Glossy Accents on two bears.  When those were dry, Distress Glaze was lightly rubbed to seal the watercolor except for aforementioned items.  I then used scissors to separate each section of the claw box and raised the top, bottom, claw, and one happy yellow bear with adhesive foam squares for dimension.

The assembled piece is then adhered to a textured blue cardstock die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle frame. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink in Clear, heat embossed it in white, brushed with Zig Wink of Stella, added a vellum layer, and raised it also with foam tape. I think using a plain blue background complemented and tamed the wild colors, but it also gave the flexibility of being a masculine birthday card despite the pinks. As always, the finished design is mounted on Neenah heavyweight cardstock cut to A2 size.
