Simple & Easy Shadow Box Card

By | March 23, 2017

Happy Thursday, one more day until the weekend!  Any special plans or just relaxing?  I’m hoping to craft after a busy last weekend.

Today’s card features the Balloon Adventures Bundle which includes the Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Stamp Set and matching Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits as well as the 2017 Sale-A-Bration Carried Away Designer Series Paper for a Shadow Box Card. This card looks simple at first, but when you open it – the shadow box opens.

Placement of the Pop-Up Balloon Die helps create the shadow box when the card is opened.

Measurements for the paper include:

  • Card stock for base (I used Mint Macaron)
    • 1 – 5.5″ x 10.5″
    • 1 – 4″ x 5.5″
  • Whisper White Mat for front – 3.75″ x 5.25″
  • Night of Navy – 2.75″ x 2.75″ (Layering Squares Framelits Used)
  • Whisper White for sentiment – 2.5″ x 2.5″ (Stitched Shapes Framelits Used)
  • Whisper White for inside – 3.25″ x 5.25″
  • Designer Series Paper for front – 3.5″ x 5″
  • Scraps for ballons
