Hello crafty friends! When I first saw the Double the Fun Stamp Set from the MFT Stamps March Release, I knew that I wanted to try and make a box card that resembled Noah’s Ark. I started by stamping all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Black Ink, colored them with Copic Markers, and then used the coordinating Double the Fun Die-namics to cut them out. Setting them aside, I then worked on the box portion of my card.
I created my base so that when you collapse or fold the box card, the measurements are equal to a standard A2 sized card (4.25″ x 5.5″). However, with the addition of a larger roof area, this card would fit better in an A6 or 5×7 envelope. In order to achieve the look of wood planks, I followed this easy tutorial HERE. I then cut some waves from white card stock using the Ocean Waves Die-namics and blended each piece with Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. I also diecut two portholes and added some stitched white porthole frames using both the Inside & Out Stitched Circle Dies along with the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics.
For the roof, I used the same scoring technique as I used on the woodgrain after I had cut it out. I didn’t use a die to cut the roof but rather eyeballed it with some trial and error cuts until I felt that it was symmetrical. Before I glued the tabs of the box together, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. Lastly, I adhered all of my images to the inner box shelves using some liquid adhesive.
