You're the Zest with Lawn Fawn's Zesty Lemon

 Hello and Welcome! Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Zesty Lemon die set. This was a die set I bought when it came out and have never used it, so I thought it's time to use it. 

For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base from smooth white heavy weight cardstock. I die cut a background piece using MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX largest die. I used Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass to create the blue background. I sprayed water on to the ink and dabbed it with a Kleenex to create some extra detail. Once it was dried, I used double sided adhesive to add it to my card. 

I die cut the lemon from a bright yellow cardstock and added Distress Oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade around the edges. I used a lighter yellow cardstock for the back of the lemons. 

For the lemon slices, I added light yellow cardstock for the inside, then added details with Copic markers. 

I die cut the leaves from a light green cardstock and added details with Copic markers. 

I die cut the basket using Lawn Fawn's Fruit Basket from smooth white cardstock and added some shadow using Copic markers. 

I used Lawn Fawn's Oliver's Stitched ABC's and cut out the word "Zest" then added some Distress Oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade to the bottom of the letters. 

I stamped the "You are the" sentiment from MFT More Essential Sentiments using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. 

Once I had everything glued down where I wanted it. I added some Glossy Accents to the lemons to make it look like water drops and I added some to the lemon slice to make it look juicy. Then I added glitter gel to the word Zest. 

This is such a pretty die set. I just love how the lemons came out. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
