I bought the new Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop Up die a few weeks ago and haven’t really had time to play with it yet. L I finally got time today. I used my new favorite vegetable pun again also.

Size: Box Card – folds to an A2 size card
Extra Details: I began this card with a lot of die cutting. I had two sheets of the Lawn Fawn’s blue polka dot paper in my stash, so I used those for the card base and inside braces. I used the matching stitched rectangle dies and white card stock to create all of the rectangles. Using the same dies, I cut some brown rectangles as well. I found that one of the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackable dies from Lawn Fawn fill the back of the box card up nicely and give plenty of room for a message. I cut one of those from white card stock also. I used some stitched hillside border dies to create hills from the brown rectangles. I also made three hills for the inside braces with the same brown card stock. I used a scrap of green polka dotted paper to cut a grassy border for one of the white rectangles.
Although, this is the first card I have made with the box card die, this is not the first time I have used it. I made a practice card when the die first arrived. That process made me realize that it is a lot easier to decorate all of the pieces before adhering anything together. So the next step was to sort everything out, so I knew what was going where.
Then I began the stamping. I stamped the birds, phone, radish, and some leafy tops on scraps of white card stock. I fussy cut all of the images out. I used a black marker to paint the edges of the birds and phone.
I stamped the leafy tops, clouds, bees, sentiments, butterflies, and flowers directly onto their white rectangles. Next, I adhered the brown hills and grassy border to the white rectangles. I added the ants to the dirt. I adhered a bird and the phone to the front rectangle with the grassy border.
I adhered the two long box die cuts together. I adhered all of the white rectangles in their proper places.
Then, I began work on the inside braces of the box. I adhered a brown hill to each brace. I adhered the hills to low on each brace, so I cut a small piece of the side tabs off before adhering them. I added the leafy tops, a bird, and the radish to the hills. I adhered one tab of each brace to one side panel of the box. Then I fold the box up and adhered the tabs to the opposite side and adhered the final tab to create the box card.
This was a fun card to make but it does take some planning.
