MFT MARCH RELEASE COUNTDOWN DAY 3

Hello and welcome to My Favorite Things March Release Countdown Day Three.  

For today, I used the Pure Innocence Somebunny Sweet and Hoppy Friends stamp set to make my easter themed shadow box card. 


To begin, I stamped the images from the two set and colored them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I felt like I needed more images to bring the scene together so I stamped the flowers and the butterflies from BB Adorable Elephants and colored them with Copics as well and cut them out.


This box card fits in a A2 size envelope. To make the box, I trimmed two panels that measures 5 3/4" x 4 1/4".  I scored lines at 4 1/2 and 5 1/4 and folded at the scored lines. Before attaching them together to make a box, I covered the front panel with pattern paper and then die-cut it with a die from Elegant Rectangle Stax Die-namics to create the front window.


I made the inside cloud background panel using the Mini Edges Stencils with Tumble Glass Distress Inks. I trimmed it to 4 1/2 x 4 1/4 and adhered to the back of the card. I made 2 grass panels with Sour apple cardstock that measures 5 1/4" x 1 3/4 and scored lines at 1/4" and 5".  I die-cut them with the Grassy Edges Die-namics. I made the front panel shorter than the back panel. I folded the ends and adhered them to the sides of the box.

I glued on the images to the box and added the butterflies to thin stripes of acetate to make them look like they are flying. To finish, I added a sentiment to the card front. 

Thank you so much for visiting me today! Please head over to the MFT Blog to check out what the rest of the team has created, and for a chance to win a MFT Gift Certificate!
