Jessica’s Edward Scissorhands Scalloped Box Card!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Inspired by a Book, Movie, or Song challenge! It’s been so fun figuring out how I can adapt Lawn Fawn sets to fit some of my favorite movies! Today I’ve created a box card pop-up featuring one of my all-time favorites: Edward Scissorhands!!

To start I stamped the mermaid and merman from Mermaid For You, the houses from Happy Village, and lots of scissors from Holiday Helpers with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers, added a few Edward Scissorhands accents to the merman, and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.

Next I stamped the giraffe from Critters on the Savanna, the dino from Critters from the Past, the seal from Sealed With a Kiss, and Nessie from Lovable Legends with Celery Stick ink and colored them with Copic markers to recreate the topiaries that Edward creates in the movie. Once I was done I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and added a little YG11 Copic to the edges of the dies to keep them from being too clean cut.

Next I die-cut the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up with the Spring Fling paper pack and the inner mats of the box card with the Spiffy Speckles paper pack in green and blue. I also used the Simple Stitched Hillside dies to create grassy hills for each layer. I stamped the sentiment from Coaster Critters onto one of the mats with Versafine and heat-embossed it
with clear embossing powder. Then I adhered the box together. I added some of the topiaries to the side panels and tucked the rest around my houses. Finally I added Edward and Kim to complete the scene!

And that’s my card! You have until Sunday, March 17th at 11:59PM ET to get crafty with your Inspired by a Book, Movie, and Song creations and I can’t wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
-Jess

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! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge!

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!
