Bearing Gifts - Pop Up Box Card

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Nicky back with you today with a very fun pop up box card using the brand new Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up by Lawn Fawn.  If you never fancied the challenge of a box card before ..... well, it just got quite a bit easier!

No more measuring, the Lawn Cuts craft die will do all the thinking for you and all you have to do is have lots of creative fun making the card.  I used Lawn Fawn's Lawn Cuts Grassy Border, die-cutting it several times over so that I could stack the grassy edges inside the card.  For today's box card I decided to use the relatively new Bearing Gifts stamp set by Reverse Confetti.   The bear in his car and the trees and background mountains were all stamped with Archival Ink and watercolour painted using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  They were then die cut and applied to the card, slowly but surely building the scene.

The panels that are layered on top of the flaps were made using papers from the lovely Watercolor Wash 6x6 Paper Pack by My Favorite Things.  I also used touches of the Uni-Ball Signo White Pen to highlight various points on all of the card's components.

No matter which way you turn the card there is something of interest and of course it all folds neatly flat into standard A2 dimensions.

I gave the reverse of my card the pretty panels but otherwise kept it blank since this is the only place to write your personal message to the recipient.

I do hope this card inspires you to make your own!  Have a wonderful and creative week, I will be back again next Tuesday and meanwhile you can also follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook.
