Lawn Fawn Video {7.4.23} Kara’s Mixed Media Card with Build-A-Drink

Save the Date! Our next Create with Us Live is on July 12th! We can’t wait to talk all things crafty while making cards with new Summer 2023 sets! Make plans to join Kelly Marie and Jenn, it will be so much fun! You will find all the details to craft along with us, HERE.

Happy Independence Day, friends! Kara has a fun mixed media technique to share with us today! Then she will create a fun card using Build-A-Drink and Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On. You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Kara created the “1960’s kitchen of your dreams” to highlight our Build-A-Drink and Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On sets! Her yummy strawberry margarita is a perfect theme for a hot summer day!

To create the “tile backsplash”, Kara used the Honeycomb Stencil to add a blue hexagon pattern to her card front. Then she stenciled again with Clear Stencil Paste over the top to give the tile a shiny finish!

The Pastel Pearlescent Vellum looks so cool as a “strawberry margarita” in the Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On glass!

Kara used a fun mixed media technique to create the marbled “countertop”! She filled a paper plate with dollar store shaving cream, then added drops of Distress Ink refill. Using a craft spatula, she created the marbled pattern. She lightly pressed a plain white cardstock panel into the shaving cream. Then she lifted it up and scraped off the shaving cream revealing the marbled pattern of the ink. This is such a fun technique!

The So Smooth blender, cocktail glass, strawberries and ice cube tray fill up the left side of the vintage-looking counter, while the Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On margarita sits on a “table” in foreground, filling the space to the right.

Kara also used the marbled paper to die cut Scripty Enjoy bringing the fun texture to the inside of the card, pairing it with a sentiment from On the Beach.

Thank you so much Kara for this amazing 60s inspired kitschy kitchen design! I love seeing that shaving cream technique again!


Thanks so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

Marine‘s pair of Build-A-Drink cards also include Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On! I love all the shiny bits in these shakers with colors so bright and sunny! She created the background with Sunray Stencil in cool colors to add the summery fun!

Marine added a frothy topping using Stitched Cupcake then drove home the strawberry drink theme with Strawberry Patch! And then she added the punny messages on these cards spelled out with Smitty’s ABCs.

Zesty Lemon adds lots of sunshine and also the tang to this refreshing cocktail!

Grace‘s Build-A-Drink card is so tropical and fun with its stripey umbrella! She combined Tropical Backdrop with Happy Hibiscus to set the scene while making the cool berry drink the star!

Megan‘s design features Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On filled with a drink that looks so yummy! Maybe a Tequila Sunrise? I love the lemon wedge and cherry on the fancy pick! She also used Secret Garden Window with Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop texture, giving the scene a fun beach bar look.

Lynnette‘s card is so fun with Scripty Enjoy as the greeting! Her card features both Build-A-Drink sets! I love how she scattered the strawberries, lemons and leaves around the bottom of the glasses!

Audrey‘s card is so much fun, and perfect for celebrating a milestone birthday featuring Build-A-Drink and Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On! The Stitched Ripple Backdrop gives the card a subtle design as does the black splatters and stars! It’s so cool how she added foam to the “beer” using our Textured White Embossing Powder!

Kara‘s card design is so gorgeous! She took advantage of our new Beach Sunset Stencils set to create an amazing scene for the Build-A-Drink Cocktail Backdrop. And then she added a punny greeting using Henry’s ABCs!

Latisha‘s fresh as summer design features Scripty Enjoy! She paired it with Fruit Salad papers and also the new Playful Pineapple die set! This card is so perfect to wish a friend bon voyage to tropical locales!

The doily and gingham paper that Yainea used makes me think the Build-A-Drink glass is filled sweet tea! I love how she added the fruit to her design! So fresh and fun!

Elena brought attention to her Build-A-Drink Cocktail Add-On by framing it with a Reverse Stitched Scalloped Circle Window. She also added more detail by adding Sunburst Backdrop to the mix.

Caly‘s card design is so bright and happy! It looks like one drink is minty, while the other is a fancy fruity drink! I love the chunky glitter and novelty shaker elements, they add so much fun to this beautiful card!

The joyful pup from Yappy Birthday Add-On is so perfect for sending birthday wishes! Elise created a fun scene with Scripty Enjoy as the perfect greeting!

Rebecca’s simple design is so pretty! The Build-A-Drink glass filled with a lemon wedge, strawberry and cucumber looks so inviting! Swap out the sentiment to use this design for so many occasions!

With fruity drinks and a Fruit Salad gingham background, Grace‘s card is so cool! Possibly the coolest ever! She framed the fun with a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame and then added the perfect sentiment on a Simple Wavy Banner!
