CCMC Saturday Blog Hop Shadow Box Card

Whew…I’ve had a lot of Blog Hops lately, haven’t I?  This is is our regular Saturday Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop!  As you recall, this month we are featuring special folds on our cards and Nicole chose the Shadow Box Card!  I must admit…I absolutely LOVE my card!  It came out exactly like I thought it would!  You’ve probably just come from Deb Currier’s blog…fabulous, isn’t she?


Garden in Bloom Shadow Box Card
So…what do you think of my little flower pot Shadow Box Card?  Here are the details:

  • Cut one Tempting Turquoise Brights Patterns DSP and one Tempting Turquoise Cardstock sheet to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2, score both at 1/2, 1, 4-1/2, and 5.
  • Cut the center out of the printed sheet using the Circle Framelit (6th from smallest).
  • On the back Tempting Turquoise cardstock, build your scene between the two scorelines.
  • I tore a piece of Old Olive for the ground.
  • The flower pot was made by punching Tip Top Taupe with the top of the Note Tag Punch and cutting the 2-1/2 Circle in half.  On the circle, I stamped the “stem” from Garden in Bloom with Tip Top Taupe to make horizontal lines.
  • On Whisper White, I stamped the large flower with Crushed Curry and outlined with Tip Top Taupe.  The small flowers were 3-step stamped with Pumpkin Pie and Watermelon Wonder (stamp off for the first solid image, then inside image is full strength and outside lines are Tip Top Taupe).  Stamp the large and small leaves with Old Olive on Whisper White and outline with Mossy Meadow Ink.  Cut all images out and arrange in flower pot with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  (Add the flowers first, then fill in with leaves.)
  • Add Pearls to the centers of the small flowers and a large Perfect White Accent to the center of the large flower.
  • Finally, I thought it needed a little something in the background, so I punched the “frosting” from the Tree Builder Punch from Whisper White for a cloud!
  • To finish building the card, add Sticky Strip on the end tabs and place both pieces together.  The folds will make a shadowbox look!
