Today, I am going to show you how to make this shadow box card.
First you are going to need two pieces of a quarter piece of card stock. I like to use white in the back because that is my main stamping area. The certain color, I want to use regal rose today. So what you are going to do is you are going to get your 4 1” x 5 ½” piece of card stock and I am going to score it at ½” and 1” and you are going to do that on all sides in both of the long sides. You are going to do both side on your regal rose and both side on your whisper white. Take your Coluzzle and you are going to position your cutting system between the 1” score lines so I want to center this here. Now I use the back sharpie, this is the main circle that I use a lot with my shadow boxes. So let me go ahead and cut that out, I want to go up a little bit more. I will follow that around. Let me get my scissors out here and let me just finish cutting it off.
Then on the back side, you are going to put your sticky strip on the half inch line so it is the far end. Put your sticky strip there. Fold it in and then back. This is going to be the front of your shadow box card. So that is the shadow box. Now, we got to do the inside of your card. I am going to line this up with the back side of my whisper white and I am going to take a pencil and I am going to lightly sketch a line. This is going to be mainly a guide for me to know where I am stamping. Just a light pencil line so it transfers over there so you can see. Then I am taking the Boat Loads of Love and I am going to stamp that in black. Then I got my guide here so I am just going to stamp my boat in the center of my circle. Then you are going to edge your little Puffs a Smoke so whatever you want to do.
Now, this is the adhesive remover but I found it it’s a really great eraser too. But you do not want to erase it too soon after you stamp because it might smear the black but I am just going to show you how great it does it. I will skip on the black area just for now. Let it dry for a minute. And this is also the time that you are going to want to stamp here in front of your card which I want to use regal rose for that too and I am using the flower from the Happy Heart Day. I am going to stamp all over it. Now to put my card together, I am going to peel this off, the backing. Now the boat, you are going to fold it upward like this. And of course you are going to color it, you can glitter it and everything before you actually put the card together but I want to go ahead and put it together right now. And make sure your face of your card is the right way upward. Then I am going to take my front, line it up with the white and adhere it down. Peel off my other backing and do the same with the other side and there is my card.
Now this is awesome, it lays flat, see how it sits out cute but when you mail it, at least flat so it will fit in an envelope. Well it does lay flat and its perfect sized for a card so then when the receiver gets it, they just pop it into the sides.
So this is the finished one again. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed it, bye!
