Hello friends! The June Release from My Favorite Things is now available! I have one last card to share with you today featuring some of the fun, new products from this great release. I created an open window box card featuring the new “Swimming Hole Friends” Stamp Set. I created the base of my box card using the Outside the Box Die-namics along with a piece of Smooth White Card Stock. I then used one of the A2 Stitched Rectangle Die-namics Set 2 to cut a stitched window into the front portion of my card. Prior to piecing the box together, I adhered a piece of clear acetate behind that window with some liquid adhesive.
I added some beach dunes cut from Kraft Card Stock (and lightly blended with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink) using the Outside the Box Snow Drifts Die-namics and adhered them to the inside of the card. I then blended a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with some Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire) and splattered it lightly with water. I diecut the top of this piece with one of the Ocean Waves Die-namics and then placed this piece slightly behind the open window in the front of the box. Next, I stamped my images onto another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating “Swimming Hole Friends” Die-namics to cut them out and then attached them to my card in various places.
Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment on a strip of Black Licorice Card Stock with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. I used one of the Skinny Strips Die-namics to cut it out and adhered it to the lower front right corner of my card.
Copic Colors Used:
- Lion: Y23, E21, E34; E23, E25, E29
- Palm Tree: YG01, YG25, YG67; E40, E41, E43

Fantastic box card, Rachel. I just love to see what your creative mind comes up with. This is perfect. The coloring is always spot on and fun. The scene is fabulous. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity! 🙂
WOW, this pop up box scene is amazing. The colors are so rich!!! I am trying to bring my scenes to life, but I’m not good at using dark colors, so they look sort of flat. You are great at it!
