Lawn Fawn | Beaver Appreciation Day + Beaver Birthday Card

Hello, crafty friends! Did you know that it's International Beaver Day and Beaver Appreciation Day? My family and I have been making beaver cards for a long time and you can find all those HERE, including the Halloween costumes and Minecraft story that that started our obsession with beavers.

This was actually the card I made for my husband's birthday last year, 11 months ago, but I had made it right after my dad died and it was around that time that I stopped creating for six months. I had every intention to make a reel and post it because I think it's too cute not to share so I'm happy to be able to do it today, on this unusual holiday!

The two main Lawn Fawn bundles featured here are Wood You Be Mine? and Den Sweet Den. It took me forever to collect the latter but once the beavers were released, I just had to get it because they complement each other so well! Obviously, the Stitched Dens were a necessity, too, so I could create the perfect home.

I customized the framed sentiment for this birthday scene and included all the things that my husband loves. The smaller items not included in the above-mentioned sets are the soccer ball from Tiny Sports Friends, wine/cheese/baguette from Bicycle Built for You, and the birthday cake from Party Animal

All of the images were stamped and heat embossed on watercolour cardstock, then watercolored with mini distress ink pads, all of which are listed below. I also ink blended some greens and blues on the white woodgrain cardstock on the card base, before attaching everything on the card base with a mix of liquid glue and foam squares.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today's project. If you're inspired, please shop my affiliate links below. I appreciate your continued support!
