Hello crafty friends! Wishing you all a Happy New Year or New Year’s Eve (depending on when you read this).
I have a shadow box card to share with you today that features the adorable new Love Birds Stamp Set. To start, I first created my shadow box from scratch. When folded, it measures 5″ x 6.5″ and can fit easily in a 5×7 envelope. When upright, it measures 4.5″ wide by 5″ tall. To create my base, I simply trimmed two pieces of white card stock to 5″ x 7″ and scored each piece at both 1/2″ and 5″. I die cut a stitched circle into one of the pieces to create a window, stamped my sentiment, and then attached both the front and back piece of my shadow box together by adding some glue to the 1/2″ tab pieces.
I next used my MISTI along with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored them with Copic alcohol markers and used the coordinating Love Birds Die Set to cut them out. Prior to adding my images to the inside of my shadow box card, I first die cut a grass panel (from green card stock) and a fence (from white card stock) using the Picket Fence Die Set. I adhered the grass first directly behind the bottom opening of my circular window and then added the fence piece behind my grass. (To add some shading, I lightly blended the top of my grass with some Peeled Paint Distress Ink.)
For my background, I blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto a 4.5″ x 5″ piece of smooth white card stock. Lastly, I added some hearts using clear acetate in the areas where it would look like the hearts were floating.
Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by! I had so much fun working with this adorable set and hope you enjoyed my card today!
