Lawnscaping Challenge #37: use dimension

This is my 2nd post today - click *here* to see the new stamp set released by Precious Remembrance!

I'm so excited to be making my debut with Lawnscaping today!

We're challenging you to "use dimension."  I did it here by cutting out a few of the trees from "critters down under" and nestling the cute koala within the branches.  You can really see the dimension in the top photo - I purposefully didn't glue down the leaves... only the tree trunks...

If you look closely, you'll also see that I created a different kind of dimension: I masked the koala on my base layer, and stamped the tree to his left, and then masked the koala and the tree to be able to stamp the circular image in behind.  I love masking - it's a great way to add dimension without the bulk!  

ps, the clouds are from lawn fawn's "sunny skies," and the sentiment is from "you've got mail."  A strip of checked washi tap on the left finishes off my card.

I hope you like my dimension-2-ways card, and I can't wait to see what you all come up with!


  1. Your cards are so deceptively simple. It isn't until you go into the execution details that you get how much time and effort you've put into it! That's your genius!
    VERY cute!

  2. This is allll sorts of cuteness Elena!!!! I love how you popped up some of the branches, that koala is the cutest ever!

  3. Elena, this is adorable! I love the bunch of bamboo you created and the way the koala is nestled in them :) I just bought my first Lawn Fawn stamp set yesterday so that I can start playing along with the challenges, whoo hoo!

  4. My jaw just dropped! Love this card -- the colors, the dimension, all of it! So stinkin' cute!!! :)

  5. What a cute card! That sleepy koala is adorable and your coloring just awesome.
