I have not been here for a while so I thought it was time to get crafting and here is the project that I thought I would share with you today.
you will need a sheet of 12×12 card stock. I used Stampin up new colour flirty flamingo for mine
next you need to score @ 3/4″ 1 1/2″ 2 1/4″ 3″ down all 4 side then you need to to add extra scoring lines @3 3/4″ 8 1/4″ to second score line only, you need repeat this on the opposit side. Next you need to cut down to the second score line (shorter score marks you made) then cut across at an angle to the 4th score line. Repeat for all extra score lines. Next cut down to the 4th score line on the other two panels.
I left the two triangular pieces on but you can ct them off if you wish to do so, I found it looked neater tucking them in at the corners.
sorry I forgot to mention that I samped my card stock first with love hearts but you could stamp whatever you like.
You can fold and burnish your score lines before or after cutting it really makes no difference.
To hold your shadow box together I suggest using red adhesive tape. (Stampin’Up no longer sell it but you can purchase it from any scrap booking supplier. You need 1/4″ to 1/2 inch) add your tape as close to the first score line as you can but not on it. You will also need to add some on the angles and on the outside of you tabs. I added my 6×6 dsp to the middle at this point. Next fold in to the second score line remove red layer off tape but do not throw it away as you will need these later to put over your angle pieces. (You cut them and place them at right angles across the sticky part) Fold in your card again making sure you keep it straight, very important. I worked on opposite sides which I thought made it easier. Once you have folded the first two pull the tape off your angled pieces and place cut pieces of red tape over sticky section fold over tucking tabs in as you go. Once happy with corners pull re sticky strips out and press down lightly (too hard and you will squash your box.
Stamp card before scoring and cutting.
I used the flowers from the botanical blooms set which is carrying over to the new catalogue 2016-2017. The leaves are from there also. The flamingo is from Pop of Paradise stamp set which is in the new catalog, hearts stamp is from bloomin’ Love which was featured in occasions catalogue which is being carried over to new catalogue as well as Botanical blooms. I also used some winkastella to add some shimmer. DSP is from bloomin love paper stack which is no longer available.
I will make another one and take more photos and post up next week. It maybe a different colour. Having issues posting videos at the moment but Jan b has a good tutorial on YouTube her card size is different to mine.
