Pop Up Shadow Box ~ Penguins

I recently saw a card that The Grand Stampede designed based on a card designed by Jennifer McGuire which you can view here on her YouTube Tutorial. I fell in love and designed one with a fun Technique Tuesday Stamp Set the Playful Penguins.

I love the way this card turned out and I will walk you through the steps. The top and bottom are the same size, 6 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

I scored both the top and bottom the same. I then used a die set I have had for a while but I do not remember who made it. I used the stitched scalloped circle on the top.

I then folded the scored edges in a “Z” shape. Then I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark on the bottom and heat embossed with White Embossing powder.

To create the background I sponged Carolina, then Bluebird, and finally Sapphire. I then used my Stamp Shammy to wipe the embossed snowflakes.

I wanted to create more interest and dimension with the spongeing so I spritzed with My Acrylix Spritz Cleaner.

To make the front more stable I cut a 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″ piece of Carolina cardstock. I used the circle from the Shaker Window Thin Cuts. By adding the Carolina it offers some stability to the front of the card and added a bit more dimension.

Here is the view from the top.

Happy Crafting!!
