Using the Lawn Fawn stamp and matching die set “Critters in the Forest”, Design Team member MaryRuth Willard made this shadow box card:

Here is how she made it:

Lawn Fawn Forest Critters Card

1. Out of green card stock make a (folded at top) card 6″ w by 5″ h. Use a nesting die to cut a frame in the front slightly off center to the right.

2. On a patterned paper panel 5 1/2 w by 4 1/2 h use the next larger nesting die to cut a frame to fit around the frame on the card front. Adhere to card.

3. Stamp all images and die or hand cut. Stamp trees on green and patterned card stock. Stamp just trunks again on brown card stock. Trim trunks off green trees and use foam tape to adhere brown trunks to green trees.

4. Color all images as desired.

5. On a white panel 5 1/2 w by 4 1/2 h use pigment ink pads and stipple brushes to create a “sunset” background. Tear a lt brown strip of card stock for ground and adhere to sunset panel. Adhere inside card. (Don’t you just love that sunset background?  I think this may take a little practice to turn out like MaryRuth’s!)

6. Adhere images on card using foam tape on some to add dimension.

7. Stamp “hello foxy” on white card stock. Trim. Adhere to a blue piece of card stock and trim. Adhere with foam tape inside card where shown.

8. Add Stickles glitter glue where desired.

And here is another card she made using the same set (please excuse the blurry photo):

1. Use wood patterned card stock to make a folded card 3 1/2″ w by 4 1/2″ high.

2.Cut a 2 3/4″ square panel out of blue card stock and a 3″ square out of green card stock. Ink all edges with brown ink. Adhere blue panel to green.

3. Hand cut a tree branch out of the wood patterned card stock and adhere to blue panel as shown. Place a brad in each corner as shown.

4. Cut a 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″ panel of light brown card stock. Using a brown ink pad stamp ” woo-hoo” randomly on panel. Ink edges. Adhere inside card.

5. Stamp leaves and 2 owls. Use die to cut out owls and handcut leaves. Color all images as desired and adhere as shown using some foam tape to ad dimension. Adhere panel to card front.

6. Create sentiment for card front in computer or use a label maker. Trim. Adhere to a blue panel then a green panel slightly larger inking all edges with brown ink. Wrap twine around left end of panels and tie bow. Adhere to card front using foam tape.

7. Add Stickles glitter glue where desired.

I feel very blessed to have such talented Design Team members!
