Welcome back! Today I’m sharing my contribution to this months Stock Your Stash Challenge at Reverse Confetti (find all the details here).
I don’t typically send Halloween cards but maybe if what I’m sending could double as “decor” I might reconsider!
This shadowbox card was so easy to make with the stitched window confetti cut die. I cut down a piece of black cardstock to 5.5″ x 8.5″. Instead of scoring at 4.25″ like you would for an A2 card, score at 3 1/4″, 4″, 7 1/4″ and 8″. Die-cut the window from one of the 3 1/4″ sections (ideally the one that has the 3/4″ sections on either side of it). If you want to add a greeting to the front, now is the time!
Finally, just fold it up and attach the 1/2″ side on the other 3 1/4″ side and you’ll have a shadowbox. (Wow, this sounds way more complicated than it really it!).
I then cut a piece of white cardstock to fit over the back panel and used Distress Oxide ink to blend a night sky background.
I also stamped the tree from Halloween Gnomes directly on the ink blended panel. I used Copics to color over it. When your panel is ready, it can be attached to the back of your shadowbox card.
Then stamp, color and cut the houses, bat, headstones and moon from Halloween Gnomes. Attach one of the houses, headstones and moon to the back using foam adhesive. Attach the second house to the front of the shadowbox (just scoot it down to make it look like a smaller house). The bat is attached using a small strip of transparency.
And that’s it! You now have a cute card that will still fit in a standard A2 envelope when folded flat and give the recipient something fun to display during the Halloween season!
Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to join the challenge!
