ps meets lf

i have a new card today that i created for the latest challenge over at lawnscaping: dimension and layering! i'm also going to enter this for paper smooches' november guest designer search!

this is another one of those cards that i have had as an idea in my head for a while, and just finally was able to make it come into fruition! as soon as bought lawn fawn's 'clear to see' stamp set, i KNEW i wanted to use the glasses on one of the critters from their stapms! but alas, they are just a smidge too big. enter paper smooches' stamps! the 'fruitastic' stamps are the perfect size for adding glasses! lol!

here's a little breakdown on what i did:

i fussy cut and paper pieced the paper smooches fruit and then heat embossed the glasses onto the orange. after i adhered the orange onto the base of the card and stamped the first part of the sentiment, i added a layer of velum.

then i added the polaroid from lawn fawn's 'say cheese' stamp set with the lemon on it (which is also popped up). lastly, i stamped the rest of the sentiment onto the polaroid.

the reason i added the velum was because i wanted it to be 'fuzzy' with the orange, and 'clear' with the lemon to really emphasize the sentiment! fun, huh? :) i hope you thought so!

ok, off to the beach!
