Woohoo! Today is an exciting day! I finally get to let out this wonderful secret I've been teasing you all with on social media! Today I get to reveal that Lawn Fawn is starting their very own challenge blog, Lawn Fawnatics!
I'm so thrilled and honored to be a part of the amazing design team, and today we're kicking off our first challenge! Since this month marks Lawn Fawn's 7th Birthday, we just had to go with a Happy Birthday theme.
I have hardly been able to contain myself with excitement, so I thought a Pop-Up Box Card would be the perfect project to make. It literally explodes with fun the second you open it. It's the card equivalent of a surprise party!
The best kind of party is one where all your friends are invited, new and old, so I combined as many stamp sets as I possibly could. I used Jump For Joy, Cheery Christmas, Critters In The Forest, Critters In The 'Burbs, Party Animal, Year Two, and Year Four. Whew!
Of course, I also used the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up die, the Grassy Border, and pulled in a sentiment from Elphie Selfie. The Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 paper pad added in an extra splash of color.
For the front and side panels, since I wanted that fun and festive color on there as well, I just cut the patterned paper to mat the die cut rectangles.
I've made these pop-up box cards before, and let me tell you, the die makes it so much easier! No more measuring! The die takes all the guess work out of the equation. It makes it so easy, in fact, that I made TWO cards! Since I didn't catch the first one on camera, I decided to create a second so I could walk you through the steps.
For my second card, I wanted a whole new scene, so I used Elphie Selfie, Hang In There, Party Animal, and Year Four, along with the same dies and patterned paper. I wanted to show you how versatile this Pop-Up Box Card is, so this one is just a bit simpler but just as cute! You really can decorate it as much or as little as you like.
