Hello crafty friends! I’m super excited to share with you this fun pet-themed Lawn Fawn pop-up surprise card I created. Because what little kitty doesn’t love to snuggle in a basket full of comfy clothes!
Step 1: For the background I used blue patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham Petite Paper Pack diecut with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables (3.75”x5”). I topped it with a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, ink-blended with Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade trimmed it to 3.75” by 3” again using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables.
Step 2: For the scene, I stamped several images from Lawn Fawn Loads of Love and Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin sets in Tsukineko Tuxedo Black Ink onto alcohol marker paper using my Original MISTI Stamping Tool. I then colored them in with Copic Ciao and Sketch markers (see below for colors), adding a few white highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen, and diecutting with the coordinating Lawn Fawn dies.
Step 3: I assembled the slider element, and diecut the track into the front using the Lawn Fawn Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On. I added the clothes and bubbles to the washing machine with Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive and then the washing machine to the yellow card front, leaving room for the track to move freely. I trimmed down the kitty and removed his tail (to use later) and attached him to the slider base with more Mono permanent adhesive. The clothes basket was attached using foam tape to give it depth, leaving room for the kitty to slide up and down behind it. To make him pop out from the laundry, I also attached a sock to his head, and left one ear peaking out. I reattached his tail to the background again with Mono permanent adhesive to make it visible even when the slider is pushed in and the kitty is hiding.
Step 4: For the sentiment, I stamped the “poppin’ up to say…” from Lawn Fawn Let’s Toast and diecut it using the thinnest Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners, trimming off one end. I adhered it with more foam tape and accompanied it with the word “hello” in lavender cardstock cut using the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts (you could also use the standalone Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello Lawn Cuts). For the final touch I added the box of detergent and a few extra bubbles with foam tape.
Step 5: To assemble the card, I placed the gingham front on a rectangle cut from the same lavender cardstock (with a 1/16” border) with foam adhesive, making sure to leave the pull-tab free to move up and down, and then onto a white A2 card base.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this little pop-up surprise card, thanks for stopping by.
