Squirrel Shadow Box Card

I love making shadow box cards because they remind me of the shoe box dioramas we made in elementary school for library week.  The parts for this shadow box card were cut with dies from the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Card Park Add-Ons.  You will need the Shadow Box Card die set too to make the base.
This view shows the dyed/stenciled cloud background that was made from paper leftover from a previous project.  The trees, sides and back of the card were die cut from brown card stock that was first stamped (using dark brown ink) with the Hero Arts woodgrain large stamp.
The two strips of grass were adhered to the sides of the box using the tabs that are formed with the die.

The 'thinking of you' banner was made by stamping the Hero Arts sentiment onto a Lawn Fawn Fancy Fold Banner.  This shadow box card folds flat for mailing. I may write a message on the back with a white gel pen. Perhaps this year I will order more mini calendars and attach them to the back of shadow box cards.  Because this card was made with dies it would be easy to duplicate and/or make similar ones.  We'll see what time will allow me to do this year.  I'll keep you posted...LOL!

Shadow Box cards are fun to make and receive. The squirrel scene you created inside your shadow box is adorable; love how you hid all the acorns in the grass! Looking forward to seeing all the fun variations you come up with for this style of card.
