Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a Halloween slimline box card. I love making Halloween-themed cards, and these images from Isabel Cristina Stamps Trick or Treat were perfect for this project!
Printing and coloring
I sized all the images, printed them out onto white card stock and colored them with the following Copic markers:
Black: C7, C5
Grey: W1, W0, W00
Green: YG03, YG01
Dark Green: G28, G24, G21
Blue: BG01, BG000
Pink: R20, R00
Purple: V15, V12
Orange: YR07, YR04
Cutting out and putting together the box card
Next, I used Mama Elephant Slim Scenescape Builder to cut out the outer pieces for the box card. I used black cardstock to cut out everything but the stitched sentiment strip and the stitched rectangle background piece. I used white card stock for those two pieces and colored them with Distress Oxide ink. I blended Black Soot, Chipped Saphire, and Tumbled Glass over the stitched rectangle and did the same for the stitched sentiment piece but left out the Black Soot. Once everything was dry, I stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things Frighfully Sweet stamp set with versamark ink, sprinkled white embossing powder over it, and heat set it.
Next, I used the shelf die from Mama Elephants’s Slim Scenescape Rainbow Add to cut out four shelf pieces from black card stock. This die set comes with a taller shelf piece which allows you to use either a cloud die included in the set or a grass border die which is part of Mama Elephant’s Slim Window Dressing. I wanted to create grass for the images to stand on, so I used the grass die from this later die set. Finally, I carefully assembled all the pieces of the box card with glue.
Finishing the card
I played around with the placement of all the images, and once I was happy with the arrangement, I glued them into place. I had so much fun making this card. I made another box card this past February using the same dies but with the cloud edges. I hope I inspired you to give it a try!
