Tutorial: Shadow Box Card

I learned how to make this simple shadow box card a few years ago and decided to revisit it and show you all how to do it, using products from the new Autumn Mini and Sale-a-Bration catalogues. To make this fancy fold card, you’ll just need two pieces of white cardstock, cut to 5.5 x 8″, and 5.5 x 4.75″.

Score your larger piece along the short side at 3.75 and 0.75″.
Score the smaller piece along the long side at 0.5″ from each side.

Die-cut a circle (or other shape if desired) in the smaller piece of cardstock, as shown.

Line up the scorelines of the two pieces as shown below, and slide into place so that the top and bottom of the cardstock pieces are lined up.

Use a pencil to mark the outer boundaries of the circle on your larger piece. This will act as a guide to show you where to stamp.

Stamp your image on your larger piece of cardstock, using the pencil marks as a guide.

Put your larger piece aside, and stamp a sentiment on your smaller piece, under the die-cut window.

Burnish all your folds, and erase your pencil marks.

Apply Tear & Tape adhesive as shown below.

Remove the backing from your Tear & Tape, and line up your small cardstock against the centre scoreline of the larger piece as shown below. Close the left flap of the card to attach the two pieces.

Open up the flap with the die-cut window, and hold the piece with the Tear & Tape as below. Close the right side of the card in order to attach the pieces.

Now your card looks like this!

And yes, it still fits in an envelope!

You might also want to add a piece of DSP on the inside to decorate.

Decorate the front of your card as desired.

Tutorial: Fun Flap Card

My friend and teammate Alanna gave me this beautiful fun fold card quite a while ago, and I’ve been meaning to figure out how to re-create it. I’ve finally done it! I don’t know what this fun fold is called, so I’ve just called it the “Fun Flap Card”!

You will need the following cuts of cardstock and Designer Series Paper:

Cardbase: 5.5 x 10”, scored at 4.25 & 8.5”
Same colour cardstock: 3 x 6”, scored at 3”
(these two can be cut from one sheet of 8.5 x 11” cardstock)

White insert: 4 x 5.25”
White cardstock: 2.75 x 2.75” (2 pieces)

DSP: 4 x 5.25” (2 pieces)
5.25 x 1.25” (2 pieces)
2.75 x 2.75”

You’ll also need some ribbon.

As you can see, I’m using the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper, which, along with the Berry Blessings stamp set, is a Level Two reward item during Sale-a-Bration. You can earn these products FREE with your $120 purchase until February 28th – don’t miss out, you’ve only got a few more days to get these exclusive items!

Once you’ve scored your cardbase, you can stamp on your white insert and adhere it to the card as below.

Next, adhere DSP panels on either side of your white insert.

Flip the card over to decorate the front with DSP panels as well.

Here’s what your card looks like when “closed”.

Set your cardbase aside for now, and let’s use these smaller pieces to create a mini-card. The thing to remember about this mini-card is that unlike most cards, it opens on the LEFT side.

Stamp as desired on your two white pieces. One will be the front of your mini card, and one will be the inside.

Now adhere your pieces to THE INSIDE ONLY of your mini card. Don’t attach the front yet.

Attach your mini card to the large card as below.

Now lay your ribbon around the two cards so that both ends of your ribbon are towards the left side.

You can finally attach the stamped white piece to the front of your mini card, on top of the ribbon.

Add some Tear and Tape to the back of your cardbase to keep the ribbon running along the centre back of the card, and tie a bow to keep your card closed.

Here’s how it looks with the mini card open:

And the full card open:
