Blue Skies Card using Xyron & Lawn Fawn Stamps

Hi there,

Today I'm sharing a card that I created using Xyron and Lawn Fawn products.  I enjoyed using Lawn Fawn and Xyron together. The stamps were super easy to stamp with.  The impressions were very clear and fun to work with. The use of Xyron's adhesive made the layering effortless. Take a peek at my tutorial below:

Lawn Fawn: Perfectly Plaid Patterned Paper, Blue Skies Stamp Set
Burlap Card Base (A2 size)
Black Cardstock
Wooden Word (Painted Black)
Black Ink
Crocheted Ribbon
Xyron Adhesive: Mega Runner, New Creative Station.
3D Tape


Step 1: Using black ink, stamp air balloons from Blue Skies stamp set unto Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper.
 Step 2: Cut air balloons out with scissors. Set aside.

Step 3: Stamp sentiment and additional stamp elements onto Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid coordinating paper.

Step 4: Apply adhesive to the bottom of the base of coordinating patterned paper and adhere black strip.
Step 5: Run patterned paper layer through the New Creative Station to apply adhesive.
 Step 6: Add crocheted ribbon to patterned paper layer and adhere to burlap card base.
 Step 7:  Stamp additional elements on the card front.
 Step 8: Apply adhesive to air balloons and adhere to card.
Step 9: Adhere additional elements to the card. Use 3D tape to pop up elements.

Step 10: Adhere buttons and bow. Continue embellishing as desired.

Very nice Karen. Such a sweet card!
This Xyron machine would be perfect for using on handmade and delicate papers. I sometimes make wedding invitations with some very delicate (and expensive) papers and this would be amazing for that!
