Yesterday was the annual Lawn Fawn Day event at my local stamp store, Stamp Fever. I’m very fortunate to live in the same area where the Lawn Fawn offices are located. Every year around this time, Kelly Marie and the Fawnies from Lawn Fawn HQ come and spend a day at the shop to celebrate their birthday. It’s always lots of fun with an adorable make & take as only Lawn Fawn can do.
Things were scheduled to kick off when the shop opened at 10am. I arrived just after 9:45am and was surprised to see a line was already starting to form! Like me, everyone was clearly excited for another Lawn Fawn Day and to get our hands on some of the latest release.
This is the adorable make & take we created this year. The new Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up Lawn Cuts makes creating box cards a breeze! I’ve created one in the past, but did everything manually using a paper trimmer and scoring board. This was sooooooo much easier! Not only is it easier, but it’s so much cuter as well with the adorable scalloped edge detail and stitched panels for decorating.
The die set even includes the little pieces for inside the box. If you’ve ever tried to create a box card manually, you know how awesome this is. No more trying to figure out exactly how long to make them or where to score them for a perfect fit!
I know many of you will be interested in the supplies we used to create this adorable card. Here’s the rundown for you:
- Elphie Selfie stamp set and coordinating dies
- Jet Black ink pad
- Copic markers (or coloring medium of your choice)
- Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Collection – I’m guessing on the prints, but I think it’s Gummy Bears for the card base and Sour Apple for the grass.
- Watercolor Wishes Collection for the background panel (Birthday Candles, I think)
- Peacock cardstock for the sentiment panel
- Grassy Border Lawn Cuts
- Adhesive – We used tape runner during the make & take, but I would recommend using Scor-Tape or something similar. Since there is a lot of movement on this type of card, the stronger the adhesive the better, in my opinion.
The finished card is a standard A2 size. This means they fit perfectly in a regular envelope and don’t require any extra postage. Well, they won’t as long as you don’t go crazy on the decorations. LOL If you do add a lot of embellishments, you might want to check with your local post office to verify whether it will require extra postage.
After I finished assembling my make & take, I wandered around the shop and did a bit of shopping since all Lawn Fawn products were on sale 15% off for the event. I also had the opportunity to chat with Kelly Marie for a few minutes which is always a pleasure. She’s just one of the sweetest, kindest, friendliest, etc. people you could ever ask to meet. Her smile and warmth just lights up the room! I even had the chance to thank her for being one of the sponsors for the big charity blog hop I participated in yesterday. If you haven’t hopped along and commented yet, be sure to do it by Wednesday, March 22, to be eligible for the prize drawing!
All in all, it was a really fun event. I got to see some wonderful friends, make a cute project, and buy some fun Lawn Fawn goodies on sale. What more could you ask?!!
Until next time …
