Shadow box cards

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Wednesday, 27 April 2016

These cards fold flat and look like a standard card until you open them, then you see a shadow box inside. They depth of looking through the hole to the picture inside is quite unexpected and that's what makes this such a fun card.

Class project at the end of last year.

A fun card that I made for my display table, with a square window.

This was made by someone on my team, not sure who to give the credit to? Maybe Bev Poultney.

This 'Nice Cuppa' card was designed by my talented team member, Janice McConnell.

Joy Fold Butterfly Basics Card

I love the final result of this card. I was playing around with different 'anchors' for my joy fold card and came up with this unique butterfly idea.

If you pinch the butterfly's wings together, it will slide through the word window slot and you can open the card.

The butterfly is attached to the card front. My customers who made this in our classes recently loved this idea. What do you think?

Please leave a comment. I love to hear from you.


Grateful Bunch Cards

Turtle Punch Art:
This card uses the Grateful Bunch stamp set and matching blossom bunch punch to create a garden pond scene. I used vellum to give the look of water.

The turtle is created using the Fun Flower punch and an extra large oval for the shell.
You just need to cut out one petal from the flower punch as shown below to make the head of the turtle. Glue it to the underneath side of the punched oval and then mount the oval to the rest of the flower using Stampin' dimensionals.

Upright Z Fold Card:
Same layout minus the turtle but using a different card fold.

Inside of card -

Side view so you can see the "Z" fold.

Easter Lamb and Easter Chick

Stampin' Up! has some cute animal stamps that are great for Easter and I have found that they are also great for baby cards too.
Easter Lamb:
This baby boy's card features the easter lamb heat-embossed with white embossing powder and the body, legs, tail and grass all have clear glitter applied. This is very easy to do with the new wink of stella glitter pen.

This little lamb stamp is sold as a single stamp with Happy Easter words as part of the stamp. If you want to use it without the words just place a piece of sticky tape across the words before you ink up the stamp. Make sure you remember to remove the sticky tape before you stamp the image on the card.

This is available until the end of May. Contact me if you would like to purchase one.

Easter Chick:
This chick is from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set which is a free gift in our Sale-A-Bration promotion. It runs until the end of March. The Honeycomb happiness stamp set is great for birthdays, easter and baby cards.

This baby girl card above is done with paper piecing. The image is stamped on patterned paper and then fussy cut.

The baby girl card below is coloured with blender pens and ink.

Next post I will show you how I made this same chick on a gift card for easter.
