Karin’s Fabulous Tropical Shadow Box Card!

Hi Friends! It’s the last weekend for our 3D Cards Challenge! The challenge closes on Sunday September 5 at 11:59PM ET. Luckily Karin has some really awesome inspiration to spark your creativity today!

Karin created a beautiful Shadow Box Card that is perfect to send some smiles to someone special! She used Happy Hibiscus and Tropical Leaves Backdrop to decorate it in beautiful tropical style!

I love how she colored the birds from Toucan Do It! The lighter colors give them some really cute personality and they look great with the pretty colors of cardstock!

Thank you so much for this lovely inspiration, Karin!


Happy crafting everyone! Have a wonderful weekend!

Christy’s Wild Shadow Box Card Featuring Toucan Do It

Our 3D card challenge is a 3 week challenge, open until September 5, at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your 3-dimensional card creations! Link them up HERE.

Hello friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our 3D Card Challenge! I just can’t get enough of the sweet jaguars from the Toucan Do It stamp set, so I just had to use them again. I also added in the small leaf from Critters in the Jungle. I colored all the images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

I die cut the two pieces of the Shadow Box Card die from Mermaid Cardstock. Then I cut out the trees from Ground Coffee, the tree tops from Noble Fir, and the Grass from Cilantro. I also cut out the cloud tab from the Shadow Box Rainbow Add-on from Cilantro Cardstock and turned it upside down and trimmed off the tabs to fill in my tree tops. I put the trees on both the front of the Shadow Box and on the back panel to create a little forest.

I assembled everything using 1/8” Double Sided Tape. I also trimmed down more of the grass tabs to finish off the sides of the box, but left the back blank so I have a space to write a message to the recipient. Then I added my images inside and out using Mini Glue Dots and finished with an Everyday Sentiment Banner stamped in Noble Fir Ink.

Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

Let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by this new theme!

Samantha‘s birthday card is perfect for Shark Week! She used Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up for the base of her 3D design, then she added cute sharks from Duh-nuh and Duh-nuh Flip-Flop! She used glittery Spring Sparkle cardstock to die cut the Giant Happy Birthday to You greeting!

Joyce‘s unique design combines Stitched Rainbow with Outside In Stitched Thought Bubble Stackables! This cute little rainbow pops up to wish the recipient a Happy Birthday!

Samantha M used Shadow Box Card to create an amazing underwater world! She combined Mermaid For You with Mermaid for You Flip-Flop! I love how she decorated the outside of the box so beautifully!

Karin used our Pop-Up Happy Birthday with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to create the sweetest birthday card! She upped the sweet factor by including images from Fairy Friends and A Bug Deal!

Jessica created a pop-up shadow box on the inside of her card! She filled the scene with cute unicorns from Unicorn Picnic, the sun from Spring Showers and sparkly Puffy Cloud Borders! The sentiment is found in All the Clouds.

For her amazing 3D design, Christy modified the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up to look like a kitchen cabinet! She gave the cabinet doors a cool look with Woodgrain Cardstock. To create the adorable scene, she combined A Creature Was Stirring with Baked with Love!

The Shadow Box Card is the perfect place to create a fun party scene using Tiny Birthday Friends! Franci pulled this party together using Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper! She used the window from the Shadow Box Card Theater Add-On along with a sentiment banner from Flippin’ Awesome.

Caly‘s super cute 3D “gnome house” is so ingenious! She snipped 3 of the top panels from a Scalloped Treat Box before attaching it to the front of her card. The treat box was decorated with the Spring House Add-On and cute images from Oh Gnome!

The house folds flat on the front of the card so it will fit into an envelope for mailing!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 106 – Card Sketch tomorrow! Now it’s time for you to get creative!
