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.

I don’t know about you, but I want to hang out at Jessica‘s amazing beach! She used the Sunrise Backdrop to create an amazing background along with the Tropical Backdrop! The cute little Smooth Sailing critters add just a bit of whimsy!

Samantha‘s amazing beach scene features a fun interactive pull-tab! She combined Mermaid for You and Screen Time to create the children, so clever! The dolphin from Critters in the Sea jumps with the help of the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On! I love the punny sentiment using Harold’s ABCs!

With a simple ink blended background and cute images, Karin‘s Life is Good card is totally charming! Clean and simple design at it’s best!

Christy used the beautiful color inspiration on her gorgeous card! The colors in the ocean are so amazing! “Seas the day” with the adorable sailboats and tiny critters from Smooth Sailing!

Franci‘s fantastic shaker card is so adorable made with just die sets! She started with the Shadow Box Card Park Add-On to make the stitched window, then the scene is a combination of Palm Trees, Scalloped Treat Box Beach House Add-On and Stitched Wave Borders! The greeting is Scripty Hello and she filled the shaker window with Chunky and Prisma glitter!

Samantha‘s adorable ocean scene combines Smooth Sailing with the cute Whale You Be Mine whale! She framed her sweet scene with the window from Shadow Box Card Ocean Add-On and added cute detail with Lawn Trimmings Sky cord!

Joyce created an adorable beach scene using On the Beach and Sunrise Backdrop! I love how she used the sunrays to create a bright sunny day at the beach! All of the colorful beach accessories add to the fun of this amazing card design!

Grace made a super cute beach scene for a couple of the Life is Good crabs to frolic in! Underneath the Stitched Simple Wavy Border she hid a Slide On Over Waves channel so the crab and his buddy can slide around with the help of an acetate strip! She also used the Tropical Backdrop and Finley’s ABCs!

With a minimum of stamping, Jenn created the quintessential beach scene! She used a combination of Stitched Wave Borders and Stitched Simple Wavy Borders, a Stitched Hillside for the sand and Spring Showers for the sun and clouds! I love how she added the greeting from You Are Sublime on the sign post from Open Me! The palm branches are found in the Hammock and Trees die set!

Jenn used Lawn Fawn inks to add color to everything! She used Butter, Jalapeño, Fish Tank, Peacock and Minty Fresh!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 2 weeks and we’ll share our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 55 tomorrow!
