Merry Christmas and thank you for visiting my blog today…hope you and your family & loved ones have a lot of  happy times this holiday season…the cards I’m sharing today are my personal favorites…the box card took a while to plan and create but it was absolutely worth the effort…and I just love the little girl on my second card…

I started by using the Lawn Fawn box card dies and watercolour cardstock to create the base of my box card as I had planned to use lots of Distress Oxide inks to create the inside background…on the outside I simply stamped snowflakes all over using blue ink….I also used Distress Oxide inks on the outside panels of my card..

I used the Lawn Fawn Winter village stamp and dies for the village scene on the inside….I have coloured in the images using Prismacolor pencils and then adhered them onto the hilly panels…these panels are from the shadow box die set but I thought they were perfect for this card…

I added a few images on the side flaps and the sentiment on the front flap as well as another on on the front of the card it’s folded….and to add a bit of shimmer to the night sky background.I added some tiny flat silver sequins near the moon image…

The little girl image I have used in my second card is from a birthday stamp set from MFT called Happy Birthday To You but I have repurposed it for a Christmas card…I first created the background on a white front panel using Distress Inks and then used a die to emboss the pattern on it..I also splattered some water for effect…

I adhered this panel to a white card base and die cut the word Merry from gold glitter cardstock as well as a small white banner to heat emboss the word Christmas using gold embossing powder…I stamped and coloured in the girl and dog images and adhered them to my card front and then added the die cut sentiment as well…

Happily Ever After – Pop Up Box Card

I wanted to make a pop up box card for a wedding or engagement…and I went straight for the MFT Knight In Shining Armor and Once Upon A Time stamp sets…these have been my all time most used stamps sets now…

I started by die cutting Kraft cardstock for the card base using Lawn Fawn box card pop up die and then assembled it to make the box….I die cut the panels from a wedding themed double sided printed cardstock…the best part was that I was able to use both sides here..

Once the base was ready and the panels were all adhered to the inside and outside of the box,I started to stamp and colour in all the images for my card…I then cut them out and also die cut a grassy border for the front as well as a couple of trees…

I adhered most images directly onto the inside panels and a couple of butterflies on thins acetate strips before adhering them to the panels..

Finally,I stamped the sentiment on a kraft card strip and adhered it to the front flap using adhesive foam squares and added a couple of butterflies above it as well…

So happy you stopped by my blog today…Hope you will have a fabulous and happy day ahead..!!

Pop Up Box Card – Wish BIG

I have made pop-up box cards before…and ruined more than I made because I mucked up the base design and it wouldn’t fold flat like it should…and that was mostly due to wrong measurements while scoring or cutting…so I usually gave up…and then Lawn Fawn created a die for this box card….so all I had to do was die cut and assemble the base and start on the other elements…how good is that..??

This is my first card with the die which is called Scalloped Box Card Pop Up die so I kept things fairly simple and decided to use the other Lawn Fawn products I own for this one..

I started with a lavender textured cardstock for the box…you have to die cut it two times and attach the tabs to create the box…so easy…I also die cut two panels from the same cardstock and adhered them to the inside of the box…these are the panels that will provide the base on which to adhere all the elements…
Using a polka dots pearlised printed paper and another DSP with similar colours, I die cut all the panels for the outside and the inside of the card…all these panel dies are also included in the die set…so that is one more thing that makes it super easy to create this box card…

The card base was now ready so I pulled out a few of my Lawn Fawn stamp sets and decided to use the fairies and birds for this one…I stamped,coloured them in and cut them out…I placed a couple of banners and die cut clouds for the card…it didn’t take too long to adhere the images to the card..I used strips of clear acetate to adhere the bird so it seems like they are flying…

The best part about this card is that it easily fits into a standard envelope as the folded size of this card is 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″
Thanks so much for your visit…I’m so glad you stopped by…Hope you will have a wonderful day ahead..!!
