Karen Burniston Sneak Peek Week Day 3 - Small Scenes Bam Box Pop-Up

 Hello and Welcome! Today's card features the new Small Scenes Bam Box Pop-Up. This new set comes with four small little scenes for any theme, such as snow, grass, water or just a small hill! This also includes a smaller bam box pop-up, which is perfect for those smaller details you want to pop-up. 

For my card, I wanted to create a picnic surrounded by fruit trees! It was the perfect excuse to finally use the Tree Fruit dies. 

I started with a A2 sized card using smooth white heavy weight cardstock for the base. I then created a cloud background for the sky and used the Natures Edges die to create a grass hill in the background. 

Then I die cut four trees using the Tiny Trees Pop-Up. I added some texture to the trees using Distress Oxide ink in Mowed Lawn. 

I then die cut several apples and peaches, adding details to each fruit with my Copic markers. I added two trees to the background of the card and added the fruit. 

Then I die cut two small Bam Boxes from the new Small Scenes Bam Box die set using the same green cardstock as the background. 

I added the two other trees to the front of each bam box and then placed a grassy "scene" over the base of the tree. 

I added the fruit and the tire swing to the trees. Then I die cut some little flowers from the Tiny Trees die set. I added some detail to them using Copic markers and then glued a couple on to the small grassy mound. 

I figured out where I wanted to place the bam boxes and then glued them down to the base of my card. 

For the base of my card, I used the same green cardstock, adding dimension to it with Distress Oxide ink in Mowed Lawn. 

I created the picnic scene using the Picnic Elements die set (another one I've never used before) and added some extra fruit I had die cut so it looked like whomever is having the picnic just picked the fruit fresh from the trees. I added a couple of ants, because what kind of picnic would it be without a few ants? 

I added details to all my die cuts using my Copic markers. I added some more little flowers to the base of the card. Then once I had everything in place, I used some glitter gel on the peaches and some glossy accents on the apples to create some dimension. While that dried, I created the front to my card. 

For the front of my card, I found some pretty floral patterned paper and added that for the background. 

I die cut two ovals using the Ovals - Crosshatch dies to create a frame for the center of the card. 

I added another tree to continue my theme and added the "Hello" from the Hello die. To create the backdrop for the Hello sentiment, I added yellow and pink Distress Oxide ink (Squeezed Lemonade and Worn Lipstick) to a piece of scrap white cardstock, then die cut the background out. 

I added the other sentiments from different word sets, adding heavy weight black cardstock behind the sentiments to not only add dimension but to make the words a little firmer. I just love how this card turned out, from the fruit on the trees, to the surprise you get when those Bam Boxes pop up, to the little picnic happening on the grass.
