Jessica’s Critter Concert Shadow Box Card!

Good morning! Jess here with an interactive card for our current Fun Folds challenge!

As a career musician I simply cannot get over the cuteness of the Critter Concert stamp set. I’ve been using it to create cards for all of my musical friends and students and this card was made with a particular french horn-playing student in mind.

To start I stamped a bunch of critters from Critter Concert with Copic-friendly ink and colored them with Copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I also die-cut some of the elements from Little Music Notes with Black Licorice and Chili Pepper cardstock. I also die-cut the Shadow Box Card and Shadow Box Theater Add-on with Black Licorice cardstock and Knock on Wood patterned paper.

As I assembled my shadow box I tucked lots of hidden elements on the sides and back of the box. If you tilt the box to look “behind” the curtain you’ll see more musician critters and music notes. And of course my fox takes center stage with his french horn. Finally I added a panel with some music note embellishments onto the back of the box so I could write a message to the birthday girl!

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to experiment with your fun folds! I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Our Fun Folds Challenge will be open until August 5 at 11:59PM ET. This is a 3 week challenge so you have plenty of time get creative!

Hello Fawnatics Friends! It’s time for a new challenge to get those creative juices flowing! This time we are looking for projects with “fun folds”!

This challenge will run for 3 weeks and will be open until Sunday August 5th at 11:59PM ET.
For each challenge, we will randomly select a winner to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop!

And now we are so happy to welcome Mona Tóth as our Guest Designer for this challenge! She has been inspiring us with her gorgeous projects filled with amazing color and creativity! You can find her on Instagram as @mona.toth and at her blog! Now let’s check out her fabulous Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up!

Mona used the score lines provided by the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up to put together this amazing You Are Sublime ocean scene! She replaced the front of the box with an acetate panel to create a view under the water!

She used more acetate as strips to suspend the fish so they appear to be swimming about!

I love Mona’s attention to detail! She added the little smart phone from Elphie Selfie so the scuba diver can document his undersea adventure!

Jessica used the flaps included in Peekaboo Backdrop as her fun fold element! This Beam Me Up card is a nod to the X-Files!

She added the tag line from the show white heat-embossed on the shaker window using Milo’s ABCs.

Open the flap for the surprise birthday greeting! This card is just so fun!

Christy‘s fantastic Jurassic Park themed card features Critters from the Past in a Z-fold design to make an extended scene! She used Stitched Mountain Borders as a background!

Samantha’s sweet Scalloped Treat Box includes a clever Stitched Gift Card Pocket! Her One in a Chameleon critter has a rainbow of color!

Karin added a Lift the Flap fold to her pretty in pink card!

Inside is a sweet Rub-A-Dub-Dub surprise scene!

Samantha had the same idea to hide some Screen Time cuteness under the flap!

She added a little nod to Super Mario Brothers with the little mushroom from Gnome Sweet Gnome!

Franci is dreaming of Christmas in July with her charming Scalloped Treat Box decorated with Winter House Add-On!

Joyce used a variety of Lawn Fawn cardstock to create a sweet Woodland Critter Huggers Goodie Bag!

We will have Design Team inspiration for you over the next three weeks and of course our Featured Fawnatics and Random Winner for Challenge 32 tomorrow!
