Shadow Box Card Inspired by Up Animated Film

UP Film Inspired Card

Hello Friends,

 Have you ever watched the Up animated film?  It will have you roaring with laughter one moment and grabbing for a box of tissue the next.  Up is a heart warming tale truly worth watching.  It comes as no surprise to me that Up was named the #1 Animated Film of the year in 2009.  Anyway, all that to say that today's Shadow Box Card was inspired by the Up Film.


Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!

Do you have a huge selection of stamp sets?  Don't be afraid to mix them up and combine them to make something truly original.  That's what I did in making today's Shadow Box Card for our Pastor and his lovely wife.  By using a combination of Stamp sets, I was able to create a card to celebrate their 20 years of service and to congratulate them on a new adventure.  They started our church 20 years ago and are now moving on to a new position, a new adventure.


UP Film Inspired Card

I love that I was able to say exactly what I wanted to say by combining stamp sets.  Scroll to the bottom of the post for a complete list on Card supplies.  And watch for a Shadow Box Video Tutorial coming up soon here at Stamping Country.  I used an array of beautiful Stampin' Blends to color my balloons.
Freshly Made Sketches

The Up Film wasn't my only card inspiration.  This card sketch by Freshly Made Sketches gave me a jump start for my card front.

Shadow Card Picture Tutorial


Shadow Box Card Animal Outings

Hello Friends,

Have you ever made a Shadow Box Card.  Learn how to make a Shadow Box Card with today's picture tutorial.  To make my Card Elements, I used Animal Outing and Tropical Chic stamp sets.

Stay tuned, in the upcoming weeks I'll do a Shadow Box Cardbvideo tutorial too.  

Shadow Box Card Animal Outings

 The big surprise with a Shadow Box Card is in the inside.  The front looks like an ordinary card, but open it up and Ooh, La La!  The Shadow Box Card pops up in grand style.

Did I mention that your Postman will love these homemade cards, because they fold flat and slide into an envelope?

How to Make a Shadow Box Card

Start with two 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" pieces of card stock.

For the outer layer score as usual at 4-1/4"

For the inner layer or box, score at 1/2", 4-1/4" and 4-3/4".


Shadow Box Card

 Cut your window with a circle, oval, square or rectangle die between the 1/2" and 4-1/4" score lines.  I used the second largest Oval from the Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies.

Shadow Box Card

Save the oval to use an element for the front of your card.  I also cut a Tranquil Tied Oval with the largest oval die in the Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies.

Shadow Box Card

Cut 1/2" off the back side of your card, so that the front is 1/2" bigger than the back side.


Animal Outing Tropical Chic Stampin' Up!

Next, I stamped elements with my Animal Outing and Tropical Chic Stamp Set.  The greenery was stamped with Tranquil Tide and Shaded Spruce Inks.  Then color with light Mint Macaron and Soft Sea foam Stampin' Blends.  To make the pretty two-toned flowers, I inked the flower with Mango Melody Ink, then with my sponge dauber, I added Flirty Flamingo ink to the edges of my Flowers.  I also cut several Soft Sea Foam Fronds
