Happy Labor Day fellow crafters!!! Hope everyone is enjoying the extended weekend!! I have a fun interactive card to share today featuring the new Lawn Fawn Flippin’ Awesome Die. I was so excited to get this from their latest release and already had an idea in mind (wait until the last flip) perfect for Halloween coming up!
I was so excited to start this card since it’s heading off to a very dear friend of mine!! So to start off I used the Flippin’ Awesome die to cut my main moving piece out of black cardstock. I used the larger square and die cut some patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbows pad and adhered them to my by main black moving piece. I then ink blended some panels, one to look like the sun is starting to set, one to mimic dusk and one for night. I used the inner square die (the smaller of the 2 squares) that comes with the set to cut out my ink blended panels. I then used the new Lawn Fawn Liquid Star Dust to splatter across my ink blended panels. This stuff is amazing! I wish the picture captured the shimmer that this adds! Now that I had all my panels inked and cut, I adhered to my flippin’ piece.
I stamped all my halloween images using the new Spooky Village stamp set. This set is super adorable and has perfectly sized images for the squares. Once all my images were stamped, colored and cut I started to adhere them to each individual squares.
I simply love the little trick or treaters and wanted them to seem like they are walking along each panel and the as it starts to get darker and darker with the houses getting spooky and spookier.
Now for my last panel, I had this idea of using the Lawn Fawn Mini Pop Up Box die, but I found it to be too big that when the flip was closed the box stuck out from the panel, so I had to figure out a way to “shrink” the box. My husband had the brilliant idea of reducing the size by photocopying the die itself. (Yes sometimes I ask him crafting advice….LOL) So I photocopied the die itself onto regular copy paper but shrunk it down to about 50%. I then cut the reduced size image out and traced it onto black cardstock. Once I had it traced onto the black cardstock I fussy cut it out and scored it in the appropriate places so everything would be in proportion. I now had the perfect box in the perfect size.
I added some pieces of acetate strips and attached some of the cute little ghosts from the Spooky Village set. I brushed some more of the Liquid Star Dust onto the outer flaps of the box and adorned it with some candy corn from the How You Bean Halloween add on set. I added some nuvo glaze on them to give them a more candy dimensional feel.
I just love how when you pull the tab to start flippin’ this cute little box pops up! I stamped a sentiment inside on the last panel right next to the box, but I also wanted to have a main sentiment on the front of my card. I stamped a cute little halloween sentiment using versamark embossing ink and heat embossed using white embossing powder and applied to my card panel with foam adhesive. I did decided to use the add on to the Flippin’ Awesome die, that comes with a cute scalloped border and a gift card template. I used some orange glitter cardstock for the scalloped background and the gift card tab. Now please forgive me, my video skills are terrible but I wanted you to see it in action.
I simply love how this card turned out and I really hope my friend loves it just as much!! Thank you all for stopping by and wishing you all a fabulous week!!
