Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Grey Granite cardstock measuring 10.5 x 29.7 cm (i.e. an A4 sheet cut in half length-wise). This is scored at 14.9 cm to create a standard tent-fold card base.

The next layer is a piece of Night of Navy cardstock measuring 10 x 26.4 cm. This is scored at 6 and 12 cm along the long edge and the large panel adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A sheet of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) has been cut into three panels: one measuring 13.9 x 9.5 cm and two measuring 5.5 x 9.5 cm. Onto the large panel I have stamped the foliage image from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Grey Granite ink. Each panel is adhered to the relevant Night of Navy panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The flower and foliage images are stamped onto Grey Granite cardstock in Night of Navy ink and fussy cut using Paper Snips. One of the large labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies is used to cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock. The Sprig Punch is also used to cut three pieces of vellum.

The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Grey Granite cardstock and cut out using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. All of the decorative elements are layered together and adhered to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Magnolia Lane part 3

Hello and welcome to part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite Showcase. You can find the previous posts (part 1 and part 2) here if you haven’t read them.

There’s just one project this week as it is a fancy fold card and so is a bit more advanced. I have chosen a Shadow Box card and it’s the first one I have made so I hope you like it!

Creating the base…

The base is Early Espresso cardstock and is an A4 sheet trimmed to 4” wide. This is scored at 4, 5.5, 9.5 and 11” which leaves a tab at the end for assembly. A 3.5×3.5” square has been cut from the first 4×4” section using a die and a piece of DSP has been adhered to the other 4×4” section to give the background.

Creating the inner section…

A second piece of Early Espresso cardstock was trimmed to 6×2” and scored at 1 and 5”. I used the flourish die from the Magnolia Memory die set to add some detail. Onto this section I adhered the sentiment piece which consists of a 2.25” circle in Mossy Meadow cardstock and a 2” circle in Petal Pink. The sentiment and flower images were stamped in Early Espresso ink. ‘Open’ leaves, cut from the Magnolia Memory die set were adhered behind the sentiment. Two of the ‘open’ flowers were die cut from the set and adhered to the inside of the window.

Assembly…

At this point you can adhere the inner section to the edges of the main Shadow Box and assemble the whole thing. I used Tear and Tape for the construction and Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add the embellishments. Once the box is constructed you can add the flower, die cut from the DSP, to the outside of the box for the finishing touch.

I think the use of ‘open’ die cut images is really effective for a shadow box because they cast a more interesting shadow on to the back of the box. I have to say I found these easier to make than I expected. The only fiddly bit is attaching the inner section but I think it is worth the effort. I hope you agree.

Next time…

I hope you can join me next week for some more Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane inspiration.
