Happy June 1st card making friends! Today I'm here to share with you an interactive box card pop up featuring the awesome Scalloped Box Card Pop Up Die Set and some of my other favorite Lawn Fawn stamps and dies! Box pop up cards were another one of those interactive cards that totally intimidated me (much like the magic color slider cards) until Lawn Fawn came out with the dies to simplify the process for me! With the dies, we can easily make a fantastic interactive box pop up card without any measuring! Yay!
The scalloped box pop up and inserts for the layers were die cut from Moonstone Cardstock using the Scalloped Box Card Pop Up Die Set. Ocean Wave Borders were used to die cut additional Moonstone Cardstock and the edges inked with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The waves were adhered to the scalloped box inserts to give the illusion of an underwater/ocean adventure.
When the card is folded flat, it fits a standard A2 size envelope. I die cut a rectangle from smooth white cardstock using one of the Scalloped Box Card Pop Up dies and stamped a birthday greeting from the Happy Happy Happy Stamp Set and Fintastic Friends Stamp Set using Moonstone Ink and Blue Jay Ink. The "to/from" is from the new Tiny Tag Sayings Birthday Stamp Set and a fish was stamped, colored and die cut to adorn the little label.
Fish and beach/ocean images were stamped from the Duh-Nuh Stamp Set (shark, shark fins, small yellow fish), Life Is Good Stamp Set (sand castle, bucket, beach, starfish, sand dollar, flags, clamshell, crab, seashell), Fintastic Friends Stamp Set (lots of fish, small sand castle, lobster, fish food, corral, seaweed), and So Jelly Stamp Set (jellyfish) on smooth white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored with copic markers. The images were die cut with the coordinating Duh-Nuh Dies, Life Is Good Dies, Fintastic Friends Dies, and So Jelly Dies.
The images were adhered to the wave inserts by attaching each to a thin, clear transparency strip (I used leftover transparency pieces from my scrap pile). The transparency is clear so it doesn't take away from the design and it also allows the images to be popped up more. I made sure to create a really full and fun ocean full of bright color!
Each of the scalloped edges is adorned with an additional stitched rectangle or square die cut from smooth white cardstock using a Scalloped Box Card Pop Up die. The label on the front was stamped with a greeting from the Duh-Nuh Stamp Set using Blue Jay Ink. Each panel has a sandy beach border from the Life Is Good Stamp Set and then some adorable beachy images.
I wanted each flap of the box to showcase a beach scene while the "underwater" action takes place in the pop ups.
