Hi Stampers. We made it! It’s FRIDAY!!! I have a bit of a flash back Friday for you today, in that a few products used in this card are retired. Because you can use the fold for almost anything, I’m sharing it anyway.
The front of this card is made up as usual. This card started with a Poppy Parade card base 8″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. (The 3-3/4″ part is the inside of the card.) This is followed by a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of So Saffron CS. The So Saffron layer was first dry embossed using the recently retired Basket Weave embossing folder. To give the card a pop of color, a 4″ x 2″ piece of colorful DSP is added to the front of the card. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White in Poppy Parade ink.
Stampin’ Tip: Did you know that you can layer two punches of different shapes together? In this example, I have layered the Label Me Fancy Label Punch over the Everyday Label Punch.
What makes this card different is the “shadow box” on the inside. The shadow box is created with a piece of Whisper White CS 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 3-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 8″. Use the layering circles die to cut a scalloped circle out of the 9″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Whisper White, between the 4-1/4 and 8″ score lines. This “shadow box” is adhered to the interior of the card by attaching the first 3-3/4″ section to the interior of the card using Stampin’ Seal+. The 1/2″ on the opposite side is then attached to the inside of the front cover using Stampin’ Seal+.
The beach scene is is created using a 2″ x 3-3/4″ of Crumb Cake CS that was torn on the top and glued to the bottom of the card interior – to look like sand. My sun was made using the retired Starburst Punch, but you can use the layering circles dies or the 2-1/4″ circle punch. I punched the circle out of Daffodil Delight CS and then cut it into quarters using paper snips. The “sun” was then glued to the upper left corner using multipurpose liquid glue. The palm trees from the Timeless Tropical stamp set is inked using Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto Whisper White CS. The palm trees were then die cut using the In The Tropics Dies and adhered to the inside of the card (as shown in photo) using multipurpose liquid glue.
The inside of the “shadow box” can be decorated using stamps or, as in this case, use a Memories & More Card pack. They are not just for Scrapbooking, they make quick and easy cards, too!
