Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #79: Interactive Cards

Hey Everybody,

PB here, the magical place where all your Paper Dreams Come True 🙃

Today’s tutorial features the ever so trendy Reveal Wheel by Lawn Fawn. Lawn Fawn dies are so versatile and their designs so innovative that they can completely be considered as Musts in your greeting card tool belt.  And even though the interactive cards they create come out so impressive the die sets themselves are user friendly. And we’re not talking, like, “IKEA user friendly,” haha.  We mean, like, actually simple and straight forward to assemble. All with readily accessible tutorials on YouTube created specifically for entry level/novice card makers.  So cool!!

Ok So our card today comes from our very own in-house Bunny, GimmeYou and will be the PB’s entry for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #79… Check it out!…

The little bear is making his  strawberry smoothie like a carnival juggler! Fun!

Alright, so she started by cutting out her Reveal Wheel Elements…

Now, normally you would use the included “puzzle piece” to determine how to place the wheel, but instead she flipped the stitched cover panel over, placed the wheel so it was centered, flipped the panel back round and used a pencil to trace the position 👇

She marked the center of the wheel to help configure the track for her strawberries. She grabbed two nesting circles from her stash, the larger circle having a diameter that wouldn’t cut into that little nook where the scalloped wheel was poking out 👇

She erased the pencil marks. Then she cut another stitched cover panel which she trimmed to conceal the strawberries as they dipped into the blender. To help her visualize she colored her stamped images and began arranging them…

Using a pencil she marked the bear’s feet so she knew how big the kitchen counter would need
to be…

Classic wall paper she associated as striped so a watermelon pattern came to mind 😊 Mowed Lawn and Candied Apple Distress Inks make yummy perfect watermelon colors and masking with washi tape helps to make perfect stripes. Note: stick the washi tape to your pants a few times to get rid of some of the tackyness- because even though washi tape is not as sticky as normal tape it’ll still rip your paper. (Same goes for painter’s tape)…

Then, she had to do extra masking to complete the wall paper effect on the circle elements…

She then put foam tape around the wheel to give the turning mechanism a little breathing space before placing the next layer…

Then, she put another layer of foam tape so that the fruit went behind the blender, doubling up the foam nearest the entry point of the strawberries because she was afraid they would catch on the blender…

Note: the strawberries are adhered with foam tape as well but the center circle piece covering the brad is Not…

Then, it was finally alllll down hill…

Nuvo Crystal Glaze, Nuvo Crystal Drops, and Wink of Stella for extra shiny fun… Acetate so the blender had a window to swallow up the strawberries 😊

The bottom she put in drawers to build the scene…

Note: She cut a fourth cover panel and trimmed the bottom off to keep the stitching effect seamless…

Twine, drawer knobs and a sentiment… all mounted on Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″. Done!
