Purple Onion Designs | Sunshine Lake Box Card

August 23, 2020

Hello crafty friends! I have one last card to share with you in celebration of Purple Onion Design’s Anniversary Sale! The sale ends tomorrow, 8/24/20. For my project today, I used some more cute rubber stamps illustrated by Stacey Yacula to create a fun 3D lake scene.

To start, I first stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored my images from the Stacey Yacula Fox Sunshine Lake Collection with Copic Markers and used my Brother ScanNCut to cut them out. You can find a detailed list of the images that I used at the bottom of this post.

Copic Color Combos Used:

  • Bunny: 0, C00, C0, C2, C4
  • Beaver: E40, E41, E42, E43
  • Mouse: E30, E31, E23, E25
  • Dock: E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
  • Rocky Hill: W2, W4, W5
  • Lake: BGBG11, BG13
  • Sky: BG000, BG01
  • Oranges: YR02, YR07, YR18
  • Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12

I added some waves that I cut from smooth white card stock using the Wavy Border Dies from Sunny Studio Stamps. I blended these pieces with some MFT Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink and splattered them with water to give them some added interest. Next, I stamped my sentiment onto a strip of white card stock prior to adhering it to the front of my card. Lastly, I added all of my images using clear acetate for the two jumping into the lake to make them look as if they were really jumping.

I created my box card by hand to perfectly fit a standard A2 sized envelope when folded flat. When folded, my card measures at 4.25″ x 5.5″.
