Pop-up Shadow Box cards with Franci

Hello there and happy wednesday!
Franci here with you today with a couple of pop-up shadow box cards!

Here’s the first one featuring the lovely otters from the Otter side set.

This interactive card is so much fun and easy to make, hope you’re inspird to craft along! 

First of all I cut out 2 rectangles (6 1/4 x 5 1/2  inches) out of white cardstock and added all the score lines.

You need to score both sides of both rectangles at 1/2 inch and 1 inch. 

First fold from the center of the card needs to be towards the center and the second away from it. Then I flipped one rectangle upside down to be the front of the box.


I die cut my window using the Stitched Circles Dies on the center of my front shadow box rectangle.

Then I inked the inside of my back shadow box rectangle with Broken China Distress ink oxide, placed my Wave to me stencil on top and went over with some Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch Distress ink. 

I stamped all the images, colored them with copics and die cut them with their coordinated dies.

I added some details with a white gel pen and glued them down to my card.

Some of them are floating and for those, I glued each of them to a thin stripe of acetate and secured it just to the end little 1/2 inch card flap on the left or right. This way the ended up in the center of my shadow box, adding lots of interest and dimension to the scene.

I also glued the front and the back of my card together and you have to put adhesive just on all the 1/2 inch flaps once again. As you’ll pull them gently the images will move back and forth 🙂

Finally I added my Hello sentiment at the bottom 

Now onto my second card.. this one is full of happy monkeys from the Chimply the Best set.

I created my card base just as I did for the otters card but I stamped, colored and die cut these cuties instead. 

For my background here I used Twisted Citron Distress ink oxide and Crushed Olive distress ink on top of the Fancy Foliage stencil.

Also the little present at the bottom is form the Otter side set.

I’m so happy about how these cards turned out I can’t even pick a fave, ihih!!

Hope you like them too and thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have a lovely day 

franci 🙂
