Good morning!! It’s time for a new Lawn Fawnatics challenge and we’re challenging you to create 3-dimensional cards! This is, hands-down, my FAVORITE challenge so far!
It’s springtime (finally) in northern Virginia and the cherry trees are in full bloom in DC! Growing up in Japan I have fond memories of eating sushi under the cherry blossoms in springtime so I decided to use that as inspiration for my card. I tried to create the look of a Japanese lacquerware bento box! To start I die-cut the Box Card Pop-Up die twice from satin mirror black cardstock and cut about an inch off the bottom of the box to create a squatter box card. Then I stamped the sentiment and cherry blossom stamps across the box flaps and heat-embossed them with gold, gold tinsel, and brass embossing powders for a sparkly metallic design.
Then I stamped the cute sushi from Let’s Roll and colored them with copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies! I also die-cut green cardstock using the Grassy Borders to look like the plastic grass that’s placed in a bento box to divide sushi! 😉 To assemble the card I just adhered the grass first and then built up my scene with all of the different elements!
And now it’s your turn! I can’t wait to see what card sets you create!! You can link up your entries on the Lawn Fawnatics blog! Thanks so much for visiting and have an amazing day!
