Birthday Shadow Box Card

Happy Wednesday, BRI friends!

Today, I have a box card featuring lots of MFT products to share with you. I love making box card and shared two box cards in previous DT posts, but I made box card template by myself for today's one. Here is what I came up with.

To start, I began by creating two box card templates. I trimmed down kraft paper by 4 1/4" x 6 3/4" and scored it at 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" as shown in the picture.

For the front, I stamped MFT Whimsical Woodgrain Background Stamp onto one of the templates with MFT Milk Chocolate Dye Ink using masking technique.

I die cut it with MFT Die-namics Linked Chain Oval Frames. I then ink blended back of the chain with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink using Mini Blending Tool. To complete the front, I taped chain frame as shown using paper tape which is similar to 3M Mircopore Tape. I didn't want add an acetate sheet to the back of chain and used paper tape and really love the result!

I stamped images from MFT Town Bear Stamp Set and gift box & cone hat images from MFT Beary Special Birthday Stamp Set with Altenew Permanent Black. I colored trees using Altenew Artist Markers and the others using Copics.

I drew cart image as shown using Copic Multiliner Black 0.1 and fussy cut all images with scissors. I then added highlights using Signo White here and there. 

I pulled out bristol papers and started to make hills and cloudy background. After die cutting hillsides using MFT Die-namics Grassy Hills, I ink blended them with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink using Mini Blending Tool.

For background, I stenciled clouds using MFT Mini Cloud Edges with Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold Distress Inks. I then stamped sentiment from MFT Town Bear Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black.

I then assembled box card elements as shown. I glued each edges together using double-sided tape and paper tape. It will be never demounted from box card haha. I also mounted stamped images where I wanted them using glue tape.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Happy crafting!
