We would like to introduce Caly Person as a new Lawn Fawn blog contributor! We are so happy that she will be sharing her amazing inspiration with us! Let’s let her tell you about this beautiful interactive card!
Hi Friends! This is Caly, and I’m so excited to be here today! I’m sharing a pull-tab card made using the Happy Mail die set. The grass is die-cut from Simple Grassy Hillsides. Aside from the sentiment, everything is die-cut! Sometimes, the most fun cards are made with only dies!
I started by die-cutting the pieces in various colors of cardstock (brown Woodgrain, Chili Pepper, Ballet Slippers, Cilantro, and Fog). To add dimension, I also ink-blended the pieces with a darker color of Distress Oxide Ink (Mowed Lawn, Hickory Smoke, and Worn Lipstick).
I ink-blended my background using Distress Oxide ink in Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, and Cracked Pistachio. I figured out the placement of my mailbox before die-cutting the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-on so that my envelope can slide in and out of the mailbox. I even added a brad so that the mailbox flag could move up and down. I had to die-cut the pull tab slit inside my mailbox before adhering it in place and attaching the mechanism and other die-cut elements.
My sentiment is stamped and embossed using the Simply Sentiments stamp set. I cut a fishtail after trimming my sentiment. I also die-cut the Scripty Hello from both black and white cardstock to create a drop shadow to help the word stand out more. The last thing I did was adhere the extra pink hearts all over.
Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Caly! I love this fantastic, mostly die cut card design!
Thanks for visiting!
Have an amazing day!
Megan is back to help us usher in another month of awesome inspiration here at the blog! We look forward to her creativity each month and today she totally wowed us!
Megan has created another amazing scene, this time to celebrate Happy Mail, Love Letters and Valentine’s Day! She combined Gleeful Gardens with Bugs and Kisses and a whole bunch of images from lots of different sets! Please see the supply list below to check them all out!
Megan’s clever card gives us a sneak peek at a brand new interactive die (that she used in a creative way!) that we will be showing you next week!
On the inside this sweet design has our Gift Card Pop-Up decorated with Grassy Border and more cute images from Bugs and Kisses, Rub A Dub Dub and Toadally Awesome!
I love how she continued the sweet garden scene on the inside! It’s such a fun and creative way to make a card just that much more special!

We’ve had so much fun during this collaboration week with our friends at Glue Dots
! We love to use all of the great Glue Dots
adhesives on our crafty projects! Today Yainea
has two adorable cards to share using Glue Dots. Let’s get started!
For this creative card design, Yainea made a grid of tiny envelopes from our Happy Mail die set! She layered an Outside In Stitched Heart, Scripty Love and the sweet little elephant from Elphie Selfie!
Say Cheese, Again frames the cute treats from Sweet Friends on Yainea’s second card today! The background features Stitched Windy Backdrop and a bit of Really Rainbow paper!
Yainea used lots of Glue Dots adhesives including Permanent Tape Runner, Pop-Up Dots, Ultra Thin Dots and Mini Dots!
