Hello, I hope everyone is having an amazing start of the Fall season! Today, I am showcasing three cards that I have made in September. All three are fun Fall and Halloween inspired pop up box cards. All of the images inside each card were hand colored, manually die-cut and assembled. The cards do fold flat for shipping and fits inside a standard A7 envelope. I think these cards would be a lot of fun to convert into Halloween/ Fall party invitations! For custom orders, I typically put party logistics on the top flaps of the card. Note, I used different patterned paper around the tops and bottoms of the cards. I get most of my pattern paper from either Jo-annes or Hobby Lobby paper pads. If you're curious to learn how I make these cards, check out the video below. It explains score line measurements and card base assembly instructions. For todays card showcase, I decided to feature my latest creations that I made using various Lawn Fawn products. Please know that I do provide links to all the supplies used for these three cards if you're interested in recreating these for yourself! However, I always encourage you to take inspiration from my cards to hopefully spark ideas of your own!
Every year I find myself missing out on making Fall/Thanksgiving cards. I seem to always jump right into making Halloween cards and then right after, Christmas cards. This year, I made it my crafty mission to create a few autumn inspired cards. This one was created using various products by Lawn Fawn, Impression Obsession, and Elizabeth Craft. A small die cut circle with a message is attached to the front flap of the box that reads: “Many thanks Happy Harvest”. Inside the card is an outdoor fall scene that features a hand stamped, colored and die cut scarecrow. Within the scene are a few squirrels, crows and a small owl holding a rake. All of the stamped images were hand colored with copic markers. Behind the scarecrow, is a die cut picket fence. To give this card a more Fall feel, I decided to add a few pumpkins and a die cut wheel barrel full of red and yellow leaves.
After using those cute Lawn Fawn squirrels in a Fall box, I thought it would be fun to use them in a Halloween box. I decided to place them inside a pumpkin patch scene. The jack-o-lanterns were actually stamped onto various orange colored card-stock. That's right, I didn't actually color the pumpkins! Since I create 10 cards for each of my designs, I sometimes try to find some short cuts. It saves me copic marker ink and is much faster. However, I did decide to color in the squirrels and pumpkin wagon with my copic markers since they were the focal point on this card design. To make the card a little more spooky, I added a tall branchy tree behind the pumpkins, and attached a few flying ghosts above the scene. The card is complete with a small orange die cut house in the background. The sentiment on this card reads, "I've carved out time to say have a Happy Halloween", so fitting for the pumpkin patch setting!
The last two cards featured older Lawn Fawn Halloween/Fall stamps and die sets. Card three showcases a few products from Lawn Fawn's latest Halloween release. This card highlights the new haunted house die, which I cut from some black, brown and purple foiled card-stock. I decided to add the two ghosts from the die set peeking around the house. I also added a smaller Memory Box ghost poking out of the barred window. In front of the large die cut house are a few smaller stamped and colored houses. I decided to color the houses in with my zig clean color real brush markers. I stamped and clear heat embossed the images on Bristol paper, my favorite paper to use with watercolor! The sentiment on the front flap of the card reads, "Trick or Treat" and is further accented with another small house.
