Hello Crafty Friends!
I hope you are doing well! Today I have a new #ChallengeACraftyFriend card to share with you. This time the challenge was: Focal Image – Using only one stamped image on the card. I decided to make a shadow box using the adorable bunnies from “Fuzzy Hugs” by Mama Elephant as my focal image! I absolutely adore this set and haven’t used it nearly often enough!!
First, I stamped my image onto Neenah cardstock and colored it using Copic markers. Then, I cut it out using the Brother Scan’n’Cut.
I die cut the Display a Card twice out of white cardstock and I also die cut the hill borders that comes with the set. Additionally, I die cut the 3D Arch Banner once and also the Winter Forest Cover Twice out of white cardstock to create a little forest behind my bunnies! Then, I ink blended a panel with Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and I also added some spun Sugar to the top of the hill and the banner. I splattered the background with gold and silver watercolor and also some liquid stardust! Then, I sprayed some shimmer spritz over the tree covers and the hill for added sparkle!
After everything was dry, I stamped my sentiment onto the banner and heat embossed it in silver.
I cut down the tree covers to only leave the trees connected at the bottom, because I knew that part would be covered with the hill and it would allow me to keep the spacing between the trees even. I adhered them to the ink blended background and cut down the entire panel to fit inside the back of the shadow box. I assembled the shadow box including the hill (you can see all the details in the video!) using scor tape and then inserted the background into the back of the box. Then, I added the entire box to an A2 sized card base.
I added my image using glue dots and the banner using foam tape and liquid glue. Finally, to add even more sparkle and shine (because – why not! :-D) I added some Star Dust Stickles to the tops of the branches in the background to make it look like little sparkly icicles!
I really hope you like this one! I had so much fun making it!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
