Shadow Box Card Tutorial by DT Priyadarshini

Hello everyone,

Priyadarshini here with a Tutorial Post as a part of the DT for Rainbow Craftykari blog. I am here to show you a very simple and easy project - Shadow box card. The pictures may look a little complicated but its not.   There is a lot of scope to work here but I have kept mine simple. 

Here's a look at my card:

Let's start

1. Take a 12" x 12" card stock. To make it easy, I have marked them A & B.

2. Place the card stock on a scoreboard. The card is to be scored at 1",1 1/2", 2 1/2" and 3". This is on all 4 sides of the card stock. No need to crease the scored lines at this step. 

3. Note this step very carefully. To be marked only on sides marked A.
Make a mark, one inch from the last scored line and two more marks as shown in the picture below. 

4. Using a pen/pencil connect these points as shown in the picture.
The sections marked X are to be cut. 

5. Here's a look at the card stock after the sections are cut. (Only on sides marked A)

6. Now crease the scored lines and turn the paper over. 

7. Now its time for adhesives. Adhesives are to be applied on the outer part of the card stock. I have used double sided tape.

Turn the card stock over and apply adhesive as shown in the picture. This is to be pasted only in the last. Do not paste them before the last step

8. Start pasting sides marked B first. One side at a time. Remove the paper layer and fold the side as shown (half of the scored lines)

The fold will be facing the inside of the card

Repeat the same on the other B side

Now, push the folded sides out. This part makes it easy to fold and paste the other two remaining sides.

9. Repeat the same way of sticking these sides. If you see the picture carefully, I have the side adhesives still intact and yet to adhere them. 

10. This is the final step to make the shadow box. Remove the upper paper on all sides and push all the sides together in to create the box.

11. Score a piece of 12" x 6" card stock in half to create a 6 x 6 card. 

Adhere the card to the back of the shadow box

12. To decorate my shadow box card, I used stamps from The Greeting Farm and Yours Next Stamp. I stamped all the images on ninah white card stock and coloured them using colour pencils. 

First, I used some yellow ink from hero arts to add some highlighting behind the mermaid and adhered the mermaid using double sided adhesive to give dimension. 

I used normal liquid adhesive for the rest of the images. I added some clear water droplets to give bubble effect. 

I kept the inside of the card simple as well. Just added a fish and a turtle with a simple sentiment from Yours next stamp. 

  • 12 x 12 card stock (any colour)
  • 12 x 6 card stock
  • Martha Stewart score board
  • Pencil/Pen
  • Ruler
  • Adhesive tape & double sided adhesive
  • The Greeting Farm stamp - Trishell (mermaid), Maisea (sentiment)
  • Your Next stamp - Fishy fun
  • Colour pencils
  • Hero arts ink 
  • Ink blending tool
  • Scissors
  • Clear water droplets

I hope the tutorial was useful and fun.

CAS Cards-Tutorial by DT Priyanka

Hi Lovely People,

Hope you are enjoying the lovely onset of winters? Well, I am most definitely enjoying it with a hot cup of tea all snuggled up in my cosy blanket ;)
There is definitely something amazing about this season with the winter chill, celebration & wedding vibes all around which makes it a December to Remember always.. as they say, "last one but the best one" .. ;)

Without boring you anymore with my love for winters I will take you straight to today's post.

Today I am sharing two CAS cards with you (CAS: Clean & simple Cards), CAS cards are a challenge for me as much as it for most others but this time I decided to do a tutorial on it for you I hope I do justice to your expectations :)

Let's begin

Card 1: 

Step 1: I started with taking a white cardstock, Base dimension: 4.5"X10" & scored it at 5" & now my card measures 4.5"X 5"

Step2: Next I stamped my images Piggy & the fence using Versa onyx ink on a separate cardstock & coloured using the DUO watercolour pencils& fussy cut them.

Step3: I adhered the fence right in the middle of the card using the double-sided foam tape & then the piggy half over it.

Step 4: Lastly, to complete the card I picked the sentiment "I miss you PIG time" & using the Versafine Onyx black ink I stamped the sentiment right below the fence. 

Tada our first card is ready :D easy ain't it??? ;)


Moving onto the 2nd Card:

Step1: I again picked the cardstock in the size 4.5"x10" & scored it at 5" to make my card measuring 4.5"X5", I also cut out a cardstock in 4.25"x4.75"

Step2: using my VersaFine Onyx Black ink I stamped images using Clearly Besotted stamp set- I stamped with the animals at the bottom, with just the faces, to give it a look of the animals peeking out and picked the sentiment from the same stamp set & stamped it on a separate tag.

Step3: Using DUO watercolour pencils I coloured the stamped images & distressed the edges of the card stock.

Step4: Using an orange gingham print washi tape I added it above the animals & adhered my stamped sentiment using the double-sided Foam tape

Step5: Lastly I adhered the cardstock to my scored & folded card & Lalala! the card is ready!


Here are some more pictures:

Materials used:

Art Tiles by DT Khushboo

Good morning crafters!

How are you today? This is Khushboo here, back with another round of Inspiration Post at Rainbow Craftykari.

Often times we strive to create our projects that look different from others. All in an attempt to maintain uniqueness. But with a pre-defined set of embellishments available in the market, our projects end up with similar elements. What fun it would be if we could create our own embellishments?

This post is all about creating your own 'Art Tiles' that are not limited by colours, styles or materials!

Let's take a look at some of the art tiles that I created, and then move on to a brief on how I made them!


Brief Steps for creating 'Art Tiles':

Take your medium weight chipboard and cut it into a square (1x1 inch) and rectangle pieces (1.5x1 inch). Gesso some of the pieces with white and/or black gesso.Cut and stick some pattern paper of the same size as your chipboard pieces - these will be your base before you start stamping.

Collect a variety of intricate stamps and start stamping randomly on your pieces. It could be any motif - butterflies, scripts, flowers, etc. Don't forget to stamp sentiments on some of your tiles too! 

Take some coordinating distress inks and ink up the hell outa these tiles! Throw in some color, make the stamps pop!

To add some mystery and class, distress the sides of the tile with Black Soot Distress Ink or Black Archival Ink. It absolutely brings out the beauty of every element on your tile!

You can leave some tiles plain, or you can add rhinestones, flowers and glitters on some - like I've done.

Now comes the fun part - Glossy Accents! Lay your tile on a flat surface and cover it entirely with Glossy Accents. Don't be a miser! Use the GA luxuriously - coz once it dries, it'll give a glassy/raised/embossed effect to the whole tile.

Let it dry completely for a few hours - and voila! Your tiles are set to be added to your projects!

Materials used:

  • Chipboard
  • Gesso
  • Glossy Accents
  • Acetate
  • Stamps
  • Sentiment stamps
  • Black Archival Ink
  • Distress Ink
  • Rhinestones
  • Flowers
  • Glitter
  • Pattern Paper
  • Chain
  • Glue

Hope you guys enjoyed my creations. Can't wait to see how you add your own twist to this!
