Hi! I hope all of you are having a great week! Today I am sharing one of the biggest shadow scene I’ve ever made! This card is themed around a busy street with lots of fun elements!
I used the Cinematic Shadow Box stand alone die cut to create the backbone of my card. You can have up to 4 tabs in this shadow box which gives great dimension and lots of room to fit ample stamped images!
I combined images from a bunch of different stamp sets including The Sweetest Truck, Rabbit Cafe, Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2), Fun Adventure, and Sweet Ride.
I thought why not take it to the next level and combine this shadow box with an interactive element! I used the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die to make the Ice Cream truck move down this busy street!
Check out this card in action below!
I used the Sidewalk Scene Builder – Stand-Alone Die to die cut the two sidewalks on The Sandstone Series – Smokey Eyes – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock and then added splashes of paints. For the background wall, I blended Distress Oxide Inks on the Mega Blocks stencil and die cut it using the large dotted border die from the Cinematic Shadow Box.
I just love making these mini scenes on this shadow box! Acetate played a big part in the assembly of this card.
I used acetate for a couple of the tabs in the box so that the road background could show through. I added acetate to mimic the Ice Cream Truck’s windows. I also used it for placing the music notes that are coming from the ice-cream truck!
To keep everything in perspective, I laid out the images so that larger characters go near the front and smaller ones go at the back.
I stamped out a sentiment from The Sweetest Truck on the front tab of the box which I had trimmed down to show more of the sidewalk at the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed this inspiration and thank you so much for stopping by!
