My grandfather…he was a very special man, and if anyone ever asked where his house was, you’d just say on Sand Creek Road, the one with the immaculate lawn.
When I say immaculate, I mean it – he never mowed in the same direction twice in a row, the lines were perfect – it was ALL about the lines – and he hand dug up (the few and far between) dandelions.
It was greener than green, felt like a carpet, and he took great pride in it.
Ironically enough, my Dad is now the same way – the man lives for his lawn! Today’s card is dedicated to the two lawn-loving men in my life!
My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, which I covered with a Crumb Cake pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper. I took a small piece of Denim Ribbon and stapled it into the corner before adhering it down.
I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I stamped the images from the A Cut Above Stamp Set on it in Memento Black ink.
I colored it in using Night of Navy (pants), Balmy Blue (shirt, clouds), Crumb Cake (hat, shoes), Poppy Parade (mower), Smoky Slate (mower), Granny Apple Green (grass), Ivory (skin), Bronze (hair), and Daffodil Delight (sun) Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then matted it on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and offset a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock underneath.
Next I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using another Stitched Rectangles Dies., adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
